Filmed just a year before his untimely death from cancer, this 1992 concert from Montreux finds the great Albert Collins still at the top of his game. With his trademark Fender Telecaster and distinctive finger picking style well to the fore "The Iceman" delivers a set that runs from his early million selling single "Frosty" right up to songs from his final studio album "Iceman".

1992

In a cruel twist of fate, Collins' invitation to the Montreux Jazz Festival in 1992 would presumably be the last recorded concert footage of the blues guitarist, as he died in 1993 from complications of cancer.

Notes

For those who like to do the obligatory movie tie-in, Albert Collins is known as one of the musicians who Elisabeth Shue shared the stage with in Adventures in Babysitting, and to be sure Collins seemed to possess a unique look with a soul patch of sorts and his slightly pronounced cheekbones, with his face contorting into various "oohs" and "aahs" during the songs he played onstage.

For those unfamiliar with Collins' work, he grew up in Texas with a wide variety of blues influences, and the music he plays sounds like a mix of Kansas City and Chicago blues styles. One could say that Collins' songs sound a lot like B.B. King's, save for powerful vocals. But Collins' songs are more about jamming and feeling the blues in instrumental expression, and a lot of his work reflects the joy of the jam. In addition, he influenced other guitar performers like Texas native Stevie Ray Vaughn in the process.
