Bobby Blue Bland

Live On Beale Street


If you love the blues, then you've got to get this! You can name that voice in three notes: Bobby “Blue” Bland. The Winner of the 1997 Grammy Award for Lifetime Achievement is here with the crowning project of his legendary career, “Live On Beal Street.” This is the blues giant in peak form as he returns to the Beale Street stomping grounds of his youth, where he came up as a valet for lifelong friend B.B. King. It’s also Bobby’s first live album in his dozen-plus years with Malaco Records. Read More

From the wailing purity of his early No. 1 R&B hit, “I Pity The Fool,” to his caressing Malaco classic, “You’ve Got To Hurt Before You Heal,” “Live On Beale Street” easily is one of the greatest collections in blues history. Recorded in the spring on Memphis’ fabled blues street, Bobby’s concert showcases his standards, from “St. James Infirmary” to “Further On Up The Road.” Also such Malaco mega-hits as “Members Only”, “If You’re Gonna Walk On My Love”, “Sunday Morning Love”, “Double Trouble” and “She’s Puttin’ Somethin’ In My Food.” Bobby’s guests for this event were Malaco Music Group hit-makers Bobby Rush and Johnnie Taylor.
