The Voice Bobby Bland


60s Soul
Ace Records
Catalogue Id:

Into the 60s with Bobby Bland and some of the finest material and arrangements in soul music from the best voice in town.

Continuing the Bobby Bland story, we have another 26 sides from the finest of all blues singers, this time dating from 1959-1969, and what could be defined as his soul sides. Bobby Bland covers the whole gamut of blues, R&B and soul on this compilation, with Joe Scott's arrangements spicing the proceedings with the odd flash of jazzy horn parts. But it's that voice that holds it all down, with such apparent effortlessness, whether it be on the melancholic "Who Will The Next Fool Be", or rocking out on "Turn On Your Lovelight". All of Bland's major singles are here, alongside a few more obscure titles, like the idiosyncratic "Blue Moon" and the title track of his most well known album, "Two Steps From The Blues". A veritable feast of goodies for lovers of soul, R&B, or just downright great music. File under Essential.
