    Love Can Be Found Anywhere (Even In A Guitar) LP (1969)

    Imperial

Blues music has been something Soul Strutters dabble in, but have yet to master.  Most of it is guitar lead heavy and sounds the same.  Am I right? The blues that tends to get the shine on here are of the funkier variety.  If I had to choose one Albert Collins album relevant to this site, this would be it (with his Trash Talkin' LP getting an honorable mention).  Collins definitely adopts the funky R&B Hammond vibe (while peppering his Texas Twang over top).  He even goes far as emulating The Meters on the lead off track "Do the Sissy" and Booker T on other cuts. It's an album that is interesting enough to keep the interest of the R&B / soul fan while holding to true blues roots.
