@allmusic : Albert Collins, The Master of the Telecaster, The Iceman, and The Razor Blade was robbed of his best years as a blues performer by a bout with liver cancer that ended with his premature death on November 24, 1993.

@Alligator Records : Even after he was firmly established as a major modern bluesman, Collins never got too big for his fans and friends, and never took things easy. And he never relinquished the wheel of his battered tour bus that he loved to drive so much.

@last.fm : Collins will be remembered not only for the quantity of quality blues music that he put out throughout his career that has inspired so many other blues musicians, but also for his legendary live performances, where he would frequently come down from the stage and mingle with the audience whilst still playing. This practice was illustrated in Collins’ uncredited cameo appearance in the film Adventures in Babysitting.
