All of the music recordings on this site are recordings of independent origin (ROIOs) Music that has not been officially released. If you are an artist or a legal representative of an artist and you do not want your ROIO shared on my site for free among your fans (and creating new fans), just tell me in the comment area and I will remove them. By the way these recordings exist. They won't go away. All of them can be found at various places on line. Sharing just keeps the fans that support the artists from having to get ripped off by purchasing them on auction sites, and it also introduces music to people who would never have known the artist, creating a stronger fan base.

Albert Collins & the Ice Breakers, 2-15-1985

This is a pretty good sounding set of one of the Blues greats, Albert Collins. It did not come with a setlist so if you know the songs help us all out.

  1. Hey AZ:

    I found this set list at

    1. Talk
    2. Hideaway
    3. Albert Collins Intro
    4. Nothin' But The Blues
    5. Talk
    6. The Moon Is Full
    7. Brick
    8. Mastercharge
    9. Angel Of Mercy
    10. Angel Of Mercy (continued)
    11. Frosty
    12. Reconsider Baby
    13. Instrumental

    I have not listened to it yet, but the site mentions the same date and venue.

    Also look forward to hearing Big Mama Thornton. She seemed like a figure from the 1930s, but as I found out recently, she lived until 1984.

    Thank you for this great music, and some great pics of AZ.


  2. Hey AZ. Thanks for the Albert music. Fine stuff. And also thanks for the photos you post. The composition is excellent, as is the lighting. You clearly take your picture-taking very seriously. Wish I could join you on one of those trips. Have a great weekend.


  3. Great #9/10 is called Lights are on but Nobody's Home, I think.
