COMPLETE 1978 LIVE CONCERT RECORDING - FIRST TIME ON VINYL

The two-time Edison-Award winning blues band from the Netherlands, Barrelhouse, will release their complete live recording with Albert Collins as part of RSD Drops 2021.

The year is 1978 and Barrelhouse invited Albert Collins to join them for a TV show. At the time he was not as well known in Europe as he would later become. It became his first appearance on national TV outside of the United States. He returned to the Netherlands later that year for a short tour and the recording of this live album. “Albert Collins and his manager Dick Shurman arrived on the airport, he brought a flightcase with his Fender Telecaster, a packet of spare strings and a suitcase. On stage he was a star, off stage he was one of the band, wanted to travel in the Barrelhouse 9 seater.”

This RSD Drops release on 180g Translucent Red/Solid White/Black vinyl contains an extra, never-pressed-to-vinyl, track “Things I Used To Do”, which completes the concert by Collins and Barrelhouse on December 28, 1978.
