I heard the news earlier today that the great Bobby "Blue" Bland died on Sunday. He had one of the great soul voices and was a great influence on our old friend Mpharanyana and many, many others. Here is a small selection as an inadequate tribute. And we know where he's gone, ready to hold true to the promise he made in this first song.
"I Can Take You To Heaven Tonight" - Bobby "Blue" Bland
"It's Not The Spotlight" - Bobby "Blue" Bland
"You're Gonna Love Yourself In The Morning" - Bobby "Blue" Bland
"Members Only" - Bobby "Blue" Bland
If I can get round to it, there may be a little bit more from Bobby tomorrow.
