Full Show Friday: Albert Collins 1988

We search the murky back waters of youtube to find full concerts and post them to the site weekly, come back every seven days to help us celebrate Full Show Friday's.  These shows are of varying quality and may not be here for long so enjoy them while you can...As always, please support the artist every which way, but especially by seeing them live (if they are still playing)...This week...Albert Collins!

This month RTBE will pay homage to The Blues with 5 special shows for every Friday in October. So get sad, get happy eat your greens and get the blues.
Albert Collins getting down later in his life, as the energetic performer plays for an TV (and live) audience in 1988 in Germany. Backed by a full horn (and mullet) laden band Collins shows off his trademarked engaging blues style, making things come alive on this night.  The horns are dynamite on this one adding a lot to Collins performance of the blues, thankfully captured on film for us to enjoy in 2014. Collins and company prove the blues can still be energetic and fun...
