|Leo Kottke chronology|
Ice Water is the seventh album by guitarist Leo Kottke. It contains Kottke's only charting single, the Tom T. Hall composition "Pamela Brown". Ice Water peaked at #69 on the Billboard Pop Albums charts.
It was re-issued on CD by BGO (CD146) in 1992 and One Way Records in 1996.
Writing for Allmusic, music critic Bruce Eder noted that the album was more directed to country flavored vocals and wrote of the album "This is a good record, though not the Leo Kottke album to start with, as it is not representative of his usual work... Among the instrumentals, "A Good Egg" is just the kind of light-fingered, light-textured virtuoso piece that one buys a Leo Kottke album expecting to find, and much of the rest shows off his talents in some unexpected directions."
