Best Of Bobby Blue Bland Vol 2

LP (Item 61013) Duke, Early 60s — Condition: Used
Out Of Stock

LP, Vinyl record album


5.00 46

To us, most of Bobby's early Duke albums would serve fine as "best of" sets in and of themselves – so great is his work for that label during this period! This one's a pretty great sampling of his genius – that unique blend of blues and soul that still makes Bobby's work sound fresher than most of the hackneyed, over-played work by other singers of the time. Titles include "Two Steps From The Blues", "I Lost Sight On The World", "It's My Life Baby", "I Can't Put You Down", and "36 22 36". (MCA pressing.)  © 1996-2014, Dusty Groove, Inc.

BB King hips up his groove a bit here – picking up some of the crossover soul and rock touches used by contemporaries over at Chess/Cadet, and expanding his sound with a range of guests that include Leon Russell, Joe Walsh, and Carole King!

A great title for this second set from Taj Mahal – because the sound here is even more stripped-down and natural than on his first LP!

Soul On Top
King, 1970. Very Good- Gatefold
A different James Brown album – but a nice one! James doesn't sing soul, so much as jazz – in front of large backings by Louis Bellson, with arrangements by Oliver Nelson that are in his best 60s soul mode – and which give the album a very very groovy feel overall! The record's ... LP, Vinyl record album

One of the best later albums from Joe Bataan – a really wonderful little set that takes off strongly from the salsoul experiments he first began on the Afrofilipino album!
