Albert Collins & The Icebreakers....October 27, 1981 (First Show)(9:05 PM)

Contrast Clause - This differs from Torrent # 226878, as it is my master
recording of the first show, and an alternate to the previous post. That
post also contained part of the second show, which I didn't attend. It
might make for a great matrix of the first show for some of you technical

Albert Collins - guitar & vocals
A.C. Reed - sax & vocals

Taper's Comments:

1 - HELP!! If you have any uncirculated SPIRIT shows, or better quality FM
broadcasts than what's been posted here before, please share them. If you
know anybody who has shows that fit this category that aren't on DIME, please
dub off their stuff and share it. I'm trying to write a book on SPIRIT and need
all the information I can get. I have a database of over 1500 gigs 1967-1996, and
want to find as much information as I can to add to it. If you have any memories
of where you saw SPIRIT, the more specific the better (venue, city, date, supporting
bands, etc.), I'd love to know that as well. Please leave that in the comments
section or PM me. Thank you!

This was unfortunately the only time I got to see Albert Collins, truly the "Master
Of The Telecaster". A fun show, and The Icebreakers were a superb backing band.
