Album Notes
July 4th 1976 The Bicentennial Session
Albert Collins with The David Brewer Band

It was the Bicentennial, Saturday night July 4th, 1976.We had a
3 night stand at “The Hayloft” in Vancouver Washington, a barn
of a nightclub,it was a big place that held about 400 people. I
ask the guy’s who were running the board(Rose City Sound) if
they would mind recording all 3 nights? And they agreed. So during
the day I went down to Radio Shack and bought a stack of 8 track
tapes, and it was on. At the end of the gig they turned the unmixed
tapes over to me. When we got back to Seattle we went up to my friend’s
studio, to pick out a few tunes and mix them down. That was Bobby
Lang’s “Star Trax”,then just a garage,but the beginning of an award
winning studio. After that,the tapes stayed in a box for 32 years. On
November 22,2008 I took them out to my friend Ravens “Black wing “
studio to re-master them. Now I’m proud to let everybody hear them.
This recording was done shortly before Albert signed with Allagator,
and he sounds great. I started touring With Albert early in 1974,first
in the big blue caddie with a u-haul trailer behind, and later, Albert in
his van and the band riding in Coco Montoyas( Albert’s drummer at the time) van. The first year I played with Albert I made $600.00 taxable income,
after strings, whiskey, gas and food,and I was on stage 3 or 4 night’s
a week with the best blues Guitarist that ever lived, I wouldn’t have
changed a thing…The players on this tape are,Albert Collins (guitar/vocals)
David Brewer(guitar)Darrell“Rabbit”Warren(Bass)Kenneth”Boom”Gaspar
(Hammond B-3) and Les Hutchinson (drums).The Tapes were restored by
Don King,and remastered by Raven Humphres of “Black Wing”Studios in
Marysville,Washington.I hope you enjoy these tunes as much as I do…
