Product Description:

Personnel: Albert Collins (vocals, guitar); A.C. Reed (vocals, tenor saxophone); Larry Burton (guitar); Johnny B. Gayden (bass); Casey Jones (drums, background vocals).
Recorded live at Kudan Kaikan, Tokyo, Japan on December 21, 1982. Originally released on Yupiteru Records.
While Albert Collins' LIVE IN JAPAN doesn't achieve the incredible audience rapport of B.B. King's LIVE AT THE REGAL or reach the musically telepathic heights of THE ALLMAN BROTHERS BAND AT FILLMORE EAST, it does offer a fine snapshot of a talented veteran band at work, churning out honest, gutbucket funky blues circa 1982. LIVE IN JAPAN came in the middle of Collins' long tenure on Alligator, and the Icebreakers were his steady band for most of that time.
Tenor man A.C. Reed was a recording artist in his own right, and Collins generously gives Reed a spot at the vocal mike in this set, for the stompin' shuffle "Jealous Man." Generally, though, it's Collins' show, and he makes the most of it, coming out stinging on the opening vamp "Listen Here," stretching out on the set's other slow blues, "If Trouble Was Money," and doing a cool segue from "Stormy Monday" into the instrumental "Skatin'."
