Albert Collins & The Icebreakers Rockpalast proves 'The Iceman's reputation as a brilliant blues soloist and entertainer

''Dear friends, today live at Rockpalast: The Icebreakers!'' With these words Albrecht Metzger announced the blues band of four, which the audience of the Westfalenhalle 2 in Dortmund, Germany didn't know much about yet on November 26th 1980. After the opener ''Sweet Home Chicago'' and 'She's So Fine', the 'Master Of The Telecaster' entered the stage. Albert Collins was immediately attracting his fans' attention: 'Listen Here'. Seconds after the extraordinary instrumental intro the ice melted away: An impish grin in his sweaty face the Texan in his red outfit draw his unique blue notes from his Fender guitar. Also 'Cold Cold Feeling' was an expression of Collin's talent.

With his long thin fingers and without the commonly used pick, the Iceman treats the six strings of his instrument in an inimitable manner. Long improvisations and solos - also by his great band around saxophonist and singer A.C. Reed - are emphasizing his reputation as an experienced soloist and brilliant entertainer, evenhandedly. Also amongst his musical fellows, Albert Collins enjoyed a very high reputation. Even before the Rockpalast recording, the 1st October 1932 in Leona, Texas born guitarist was working with a great number of bands and soloists in jam sessions. The following years of the 90's Collins was surfing a wave of respect and sympathy: Gary Moore, John Lee Hooker, B.B. King and John Mayall hired him for guest appearances on their albums 'Still Got The Blues', 'Mr. Lucky', 'Blues Summit' and 'Wake Up Call'. After this his own albums like 'Cold Snap' and 'Sudden Frost' were selling better and better and Albert played twice at the legendary Montreux Festival in Switzerland in 1979 and 1992.

At the high peak of his career the 'Ice Man' died of liver cancer on 24th November 1993 in Las Vegas. This DVD is a memorial for this likable master of the blues. Furthermore this concert contains with 'If You Love Me Like You Say' and ''Frosty'' two milestones of a fantastic career.
