Cutting contests are the stuff blues legends are made of, so what could be more exciting than two veteran performers and a young upstart trying to one-up each other while the tape rolls? That's pretty much the premise behind SHOWDOWN! Truth be told, Collins controls most of the proceedings here, but that's as it should be: After all, it was Collins who taught fellow Texan Copeland his first guitar licks and who acted as his mentor for many years. And it was Collins who also happened upon Cray during a tour of the Northwest and aided and abetted his rise. On SHOWDOWN! the three trade vocals and guitar parts, offering an intriguing mix of styles and techniques, from Collins's "icy" leads and Copeland's more groove-oriented licks to Cray's rock-influenced playing. When it comes to electric blues, this holy trinity is about as good as it gets.
