It's My Life, Baby: The Singles As & Bs (1951-1960)

Bobby Bland's gospel-inflected vocals and sophisticated phrasing set him aside from the typical R&B blues singer, and he only got better at it as he went along in his career. This two-disc, 46-track set collects all of his early singles, both A and B sides, for the Chess, Modern, and Duke labels between 1951 and 1960, including his signature hit "Further on Up the Road," which features some hot riffing from guitarist Pat Hare.
