While it obviously leaves off a few of the early favorites -- "Little Boy Blue" is almost inexcusable in its absence -- this and its companion volume will be the best introduction for anyone wanting to explore the Bobby Bland ...

    A good look on a great bluesman

    What can I say? The best stuff of this king of the blue sand it really makes a difference hearing it from CD. Too many times, the old recordings are used by learners to do blues solos and other stuff. Hey, where do you think guys like Jimmy Page etc. get their chops? They have to learn and Bobby "Blue Bland is one they turn to time and time again, and then they go out and pioneer. Still it's nice to know that the old guard blues guys like Bland haven't been forgotten and are still respected. Get this one and experience the best blues that you can.
