Bobby ’Blue’ Bland

zählt zu den größten aller US-amerikanischen, Blues-, R&&,B- und Soulsängern. Er verstand es wie kaum ein zweiter, die Intensität von Gospel mit dem Ausdruck von Blues zu verschmelzen.& ,

In seiner Stimme lag eine Menge Entschlossenheit, doch er konnte auch mild und kultiviert klingen, was seinen Erfolg bei Fans von Frank Sinatra oder Nat ’King’ Cole ausmachte. Aus verschiedenen Einflüssen formte er einen unverkennbaren Gesangsstil, der typisch und ausschließlich Bobby ’Blue’ Bland vorbehalten blieb.

Duke-Label &&,& ,ABC Dunhill

Blands Stimme stand immer im Mittelpunkt. Nach den großen Erfolgen in den Fünfziger- und Sechzigerjahren für das Duke-Label landete er nach dem Verkauf von Duke bei ABC Dunhill. Die beiden Alben His California Album’ und ’Dreamer’ sowie gemeinsame Produktionen mit B.B. King stellten ihn Anfang der 70er Jahre einem größeren weißen Publikum vor.

Dreamer

’Dreamer’ war der Versuch der Plattenfirma, in Kalifornien ein Album mit dem coolen Soul-Appeal einer Stadt wie Los Angeles zu produzieren.& ,


Als zeitloser Klassiker des Soul/Blues-Genres enthält ’Dreamer’ u.a. den in den letzten Jahren häufig gesampelten Titel Ain’t No Love in the Heart of the City, u.a. das musikalische Rückgrat zu einem der Favoriten von Jay Z. Das ganze Album liefert einen wunderbaren Soundtrack zu jenen einsamen Nächten allein in irgendeiner herunter gerockten Bar und dem Versuch, die verlorene Liebe in Bourbon zu ertränken. ’Dreamer’ funktioniert als wärmende Decke gegen die kalte Einsamkeit.

Die Produktion von Steve Barri und Michael Omartian

’Dreamer’ steckt voller guter Songs wie I Wouldn’t Treat A Dog (The Way You Treated Me) oder Whose Foolin’ Who?, das bluesige Cold Day In Hell, Lovin’ On Borrowed Time oder When You Come To The End Of Your Road. I Ain’t Gonna Be The First To Cry besitzt durchaus die lyrische Qualität von The Thrill Is Gone.

Die Produktion von Steve Barri und Michael Omartian klingt satt und schwer, die Begleitmusiker wie z.B. die Gitarristen Dean Parks und Larry Carlton, Bassist Wilton Felder und Schlagzeuger Ed Green zählen zur Crème der Studioszene in L.A. Als ’Dreamer’ 1974 erstmals veröffentlicht wurde, entstand eine kontroverse Diskussion über die Produktion und die Arrangements mit Bläsern und teils Geigensätzen.& ,


Doch nach gut vierzig Jahren zählt diese LP mit ihren Songs, die später zu Standards in den Repertoires von Soul- und Bluessängern wurden, zu den großen Meisterwerken des Genres.

1997 erhielt Bobby ’Blue’ Bland einen Grammy® für sein Lebenswerk

Neu gemastert und im Originalcover kommt nach 43 Jahren von Bear Family die erste Neuveröffentlichung auf Vinyl. Bobby ’Blue’ Bland wurde 1981 in die ’Blues Hall of Fame’ und elf Jahre später in die ’Rock and Roll Hall of Fame’ aufgenommen. 1997 erhielt er einen Grammy® für sein Lebenswerk.

Bobby Blue Bland

Along about 1959, the Duke Records braintrust astutely recognized that Bobby 'Blue' Bland had serious potential to cross over into the pop realm and make a much bigger splash than he already had in the blues and R&B arenas. The Rosemark, Tennessee native's melismatically enriched vocal style always got him over very well with the ladies, despite his not being a particularly agile presence onstage. Thanks to his wonderfully warm pipes, he didn't need to be 

It had taken Bland awhile to break through to the big time. He'd been recording for Duke since 1952, when it was still located in Memphis and before Houston entrepreneur Don Robey took the imprint over. Bland's impassioned wails and Duke's scorching house band had combined to cut some spectacular swinging blues sides, but Bobby didn't crack the R&B charts until 1957 with Farther Up The Road (see Disc Five).  Bland's artistic focus was steadily evolving, thanks to Duke in-house trumpeter/arranger/A&R man Joe Scott, who served as his mentor.

"He was just a gift from God, Joe Scott, because he taught me and everybody that was around the Duke label," says Bobby. "Joe Scott picked some good stories for me to tell, because he saw that I was a good storyteller if I had the lyrics. Not the long, drawn-out lyrics. Just make 'em short and to the point and leave some opening for ad-libbing, whatever your idea would be. 

Bobby's high-flying vocal range deepened when he underwent a tonsillectomy. "I wasn't able to hit a falsetto type like I had been singing in earlier years, after the operation with the tonsils. So it kind of lowered my voice," says Bland, who adopted a favorite vocal move of a famous singing preacher as his new trademark. "I was listening to 'The Eagle Stirreth Her Nest' by the Rev. C.L. Franklin, and I heard the squall in there. So I worked on it for about four or five days and developed it. It gave me a different Bobby Bland." He utilized that squall unforgettably on his spine-chilling 1958 hit Little Boy Blue.

When Bobby crooned Brook Benton's sedate ballad I'll Take Care Of You and blasted up to #2 on the R&B hit parade in early '60, it appeared he was leaving the blues behind. But Bland happily reverted to his roots on I Pity The Fool, a loping mid-tempo blues punctuated by Wayne Bennett's stinging guitar and a six-piece horn section led by Scott (Bobby's rhythm section consisted of pianist Teddy Reynolds, bassist Hamp Simmons and drummer John 'Jabo' Starks). The song was waxed on November 12, 1960 in Chicago, while Bland's contingent was on tour. Originally credited to Robey under his Deadric Malone sobriquet but probably written by Houston singer Joe Medwick Veasey, who also co-penned Farther Up The Road (Robey was in the habit of buying songs outright), I Pity The Fool catapulted to the top of the R&B charts and made a solid #46 pop showing.

"Joe Medwick, he did some hell of a writing when he did all those tunes," says former Duke house guitarist Texas Johnny Brown.

"Joe (Scott) found that, really," says Bobby. "It was a good change. I always had some good writers after I got my first record out there, and writers started pinpointing on what would be good for Bobby Bland: 'I'm going to write this particular tune.' It was a big thing for me."

Bland was by now a leading luminary on the R&B circuit with major pop appeal and would remain so on Duke into 1972. His non-stop litany of smashes included the gospel-fueled Turn On Your Love Light (1961) and Yield Not To Temptation (1962) as well as a lights-out '62 revival of T-Bone Walker's Stormy Monday Blues and the pop-oriented double-sided 1963 smash That's The Way Love Is b/w Call On Me

One of the very best Bobby 'Blue' Bland albums...

I've always loved this album by Bobby 'Blue'Bland, and I bought this reissued vinyl copy for my daughter. This Bear Family release is of even better quality than the original - both the quality of the pressing and the album cover... and I was also impressed by the heavyweight packaging, speed of delivery from Germany and high quality service. Those bears really know how to run a business!!
