First Sealed Copy We Have Ever Seen Of This Mega Rare 1965 Mono Original (Later Re-Released As "Truckin"). This Set Of Early Sessions Shows The Style Of This Blues-Guitar Behemoth Already Clearly Defined. Collins Plays In Minor Tuning And Plucks The Strings Aggressively With His Right Hand, Giving His Playing (Even At This Stage) An Utterly Distinctive Sound. The Set List Features Collins's Original, Groove-Inflected Instrumentals (He Turns In One Vocal Performance On "Dyin' Flu"), With Tenor Sax, Alto Sax, And Trumpet Adding Punchy Lines And Jazzy Solos Over Comping From A Tight Bass-Drums-And-Organ Rhythm Section. The Centerpiece Here, Naturally, Is Collins's Guitar Work. His Sharp, Carefully Crafted Leads Are Impressive Throughout--He Uses Space To Excellent Effect, And He Values Interplay With The Rhythm Section Over Standard Flashy Showboating. “Cool Sound” Contains Many Of Collins's Best-Known Tunes, Including "Frost Bite" And "Frosty." (Reputedly, Both Johnny Winter And Janis Joplin--Teenagers At The Time--Were Present In The Studio When Collins Cut "Frosty." Joplin Predicted The Song Would Be A Hit. She Was Right--It Sold Millions, And Became One Of Collins's Signature Songs). For Essential Early Offerings From This Blues Master, Truckin' With Albert Collins Is At The Top Of The List.
