Texan blues guitarist Albert Collins, a cousin of Lightnin' Hopkins, was the leader of the Rhythm Rockers in 1949, at the age of 17. His instrumental pieces, from The Freeze (1958) to Don't Lose Your Cool (1963), via his tour de force Frosty (1962), defined a "cool sound" at the guitar based on loud sustained one-chord trebles and minor-key tunings. Il bluesman Albert Collins cesello` brani strumentali, da The Freeze (1958) a Frosty (1962), caratterizzati, come dicono i titoli, dal suo "cool sound": acuti sostenuti e molto amplificati della chitarra (uno stile a un accordo solo), con tre fiati, organo, basso e batteria; negli anni '70 dominera` la scena blues con perfomance ineguagliate (Don't Lose Your Cool, 1963, Conversation With Collins) e con il magistero del suo chitarrismo, il piu` influente sulle giovani generazioni.
