#213: Two Steps From the Blues by Bobby Bland
Favorite Tracks: "Two Steps From the Blues" and "Cry Cry Cry" and "Don't Cry No More"
Thoughts: I think I expected very traditional, slow blues, and instead this album was very lively and even pop sounding in its blues. Bobby has a fantastic voice, and he sang (at least to my ears) much more like Ben E. King than B.B. King. (See what I did there? Did you see it?)
The songs were also quite short and sweet, which I appreciated. A very good album to me, not great. I would never place it at #213, but then I'm not into blues that much.
Is This Better Than The River?: Nope.
