5.0 average, based on 1 reviews

Product Information

AVAILABLE NOW onApple Music. An LP is in the works.

A TREASURE DISCOVERED - Recorded live at Ratso's, Chicago, 1977.  CD not in production. Ask about an LP.

"Bobby Bland earned his enduring blues superstar status the hard way: without a guitar, harmonica, or any other instrument to fall back upon. All Bland had to offer was his magnificent voice, a tremendously powerful instrument in his early heyday, injected with charisma and melisma to spare. Just ask his legion of female fans, who deemed him a sex symbol late into his career."  -Bill Dahl, All Music Guide

May we add that Bobby 'Blue' was also one of the great song writers. He passed June 23, 2013 (RIP)..  
This Original Live Concert contains some truly heart felt performances by Bobby and his amazing southern horn band.
