Southern Soul Sunday 49
As this is the penultimate week of Southern Soul Sunday I hope you will indulge me by allowing me to share some more Bobby " Blue" Bland with you.
For two reasons a) because he is Bobby Bland and b) I took receipt earlier this week of the ridiculously cheap Bobby "Blue " Bland - The Absolutely Essential 3 CD Collection.
57 tracks for less than the price of a couple of pints and some absolute gems amongst them.
The sound quality in about half a dozen of the songs is pretty poor but the rest are not bad at all.
Blues, soul, jazz -call it what you will.
The man had talent and a superb voice and is sadly missed.
The final installment next week.
H'aud me back I hear you cry!
