Don't be fooled by the more commonly found reissued version from around 1970, Truckin' With Albert Collins, this fine display of quintessential Texas electric blues was laid down in 1965. This technicality makes the album even more impressive, since it helps make a strong case that it was one of Jimi Hendrix's favourites. Collins's combination of directness and fluidity was something Hendrix clearly strove for as well, and you can hear Collins's deft touch all over Jimi's more reserved moments. It's a wonder though why Collins didn't sing more often, since his performance on "Dyin' Flu" is one of the album's highlights. This debut ranks alongside Lonnie Mack's The Wham Of That Memphis Man and Junior Well's Hoodoo Man Blues as the essential blues albums of the mid-1960s.
