Artist Of The Week: Bobby Bland

The artist of the week is Bobby Bland. Bobby Bland is one of the most underrated blues and souls singers around. Bland has never garnered the success in soul music that other artists of his day achieved. However, to blues fans he has always been considered one of the best. Bobby's version of Stormy Monday is the best cover version of T-Bone Walkers great song. (maybe even surpassing the master himself) Bobby Bland also did many shows with BB King, and their live recordings together are some of the best recorded blues in the dismal 1970s. To hear more of Bobby, and perhaps BB, check out the Google tool bar on the side, and give Bobby a try!
