Two Steps From The Blues


Two Steps From The Blues
Bobby “Blue” Bland
Duke/MCA (1960)

Is there a universe where this isn’t a cool LP jacket?

Bobby “Blue” Bland’s Two Steps From The Blues is deservedly considered a milestone in modern blues. A seamless merger of juke-joint blues with Southern r&b and gospel, this remarkable collection of singles paved the way for such future chart-toppers as Robert Cray.

Although I doubt Cray ever looked quite so stylish posing in front of early ‘60s future-retro architecture!
