Ice Pickin’ is the sixth studio album by American blues musician Albert Collins, originally released in 1978 by Alligator Records.

Albert Gene Drewery, known as Albert Collins and the Ice Man (October 1, 1932 – November 24, 1993), was an American electric blues guitarist and singer with a distinctive guitar style. He was noted for his powerful playing and his use of altered tunings and a capo. His long association with the Fender Telecaster led to the title "The Master of the Telecaster".

Ice Pickin' is the album that brought Albert Collins directly back into the limelight, and for good reason, too. The album captures the wild, unrestrained side of his playing that had never quite been documented before.

Though his singing doesn't quite have the fire or power of his playing, the album doesn't suffer at all because of that - he simply burns throughout the album.

Ice Pickin' was his first release for Alligator Records and it set the pace for all the albums that followed. No matter how much he tried, Collins never completely regained the pure energy that made Ice Pickin' such a revelation.

Check out the fan favourites: “Master Charge” and “Honey, Hush”. 

The album has been released on vinyl for the first time in over 25 years!

This Limited Edition LP with remastered audio is pressed in the USA on 180 gram heavyweight vinyl by Alligator Records.
