Bobby Bland

More than 55 years after he stopped being Junior Parker’s chauffeur and started to make some of the most amazing examples of black American music that the world will ever hear, Bobby “Blue” Bland remains at the top of his game. The recordings that he made during his two decades as Duke Records’ flagship artist shaped the future strand of R&B that would become known as ‘BlueSoul’, and his influence on a range of equally important artists that include Little Milton, Dan Penn and Van Morrison can never be overstated. Ace’s two CDs (one on Kent) provide all the highlights from his Duke years and should be regarded as a cornerstone of any collection.
