By 1969 Albert Collins was living in California, and was becoming a popular blues artist, playing venues such as the Fillmore West and Winterland. His second album on Imperial Records came out on 1969 - Trash Talkin' served up more funky instrumentals, plus a larger does of vocal numbers than before. Covers included Jimmy Reed's "Baby What You Want Me To Do", BB King's "Rock Me Baby" and Guitar Slim's "The Things I Used To Do" (here named "Talking Slim Blues"). The backing musicians were Jim Dickinson (piano), Charlie Freeman (guitar), Mike Utley (organ), Tommy McClure (bass) and Tarp Tarrant (drums), a studio group who would become known as the Dixie Flyers.
