Albert Collins - In Concert 1988 <b>DVD</b> ~ Albert Collins
Albert Collins - In Concert 1988 DVD ~ Albert Collins
Albert Collins' was definitely the funkiest and most soulful of all the Bluesmen (Texas, Chicago, and all points in between !) to walk the planet... The only thing missing from this video is the Hammond Organ... I remember seeing him around that time, and like on his organs... his organist was one of the greasiest I ever heard...

I was a bit confused at the start of this film when I thought I detected what sounded a bit like a Swedish accent by a Jew living in a Polish schtetle who was being idealistically lectured by a suspiciously non grizzly looking blond hair little boy with a bit of a Brittish accent. - - Though the story is great, throughout the film its apparent that Herzog may have gotten a bit carried away with his genius as a director as if almost to say, "I'm such a great director, I could take anybody and make them look like great actors... !" - - uhhhhhh, not so. - - Likewise, maybe he thought that by having real people, the film would have a more realistic feel ? - - Though Tim Roth gives an… Read more
