Bobby Blue Bland is an artist I just don’t know well enough — at least, not until now.
Thanks as always, Kalamu, not just for the turning us on to the music but for sharing through your great and evocative prose!

I recently came across your blog and have been reading along. I thought I would leave my first comment. I don’t know what to say except that I have enjoyed reading. Nice blog. I will keep visiting this blog very often.

When I was 11 my parents relocated from England to Canada. Elvis was the rage and I dug him-but on my first Elvis long play I fell in love with a song I never heard on the radio “So Glad Your Mine”. Take a listen, you’ll see that this English boy was hard-wired to appreciate the blues. Fast forward to the sixties, football player Willie Fleming had a short lived one hour spot on the local rock radio station-first song he played was “I Pity the Fool” by Bobby Blue Bland-I was hooked, and as good fortune would have it the Bobby Bland Revue arrived in Vancouver soon after-I became a fan for life, was even lucky enough to join Mr. Bland between shows in Toronto for an informal chat. I consider my life was changed forever by the music of Bobby Bland.

Enjoy reading your blog. Glad I came across it. Love Bobby Blue Bland. The last time I saw him was June, 2003 in Los Angeles. Would love to see him again. Is he still performing? Does he tour?

Let me start out by saying we love you Mr. Blue Bland. I have been enjoying your music every since I was a young girl living at home. My mom use to listen on the old record albums the 33s. I still have the two steps from the blues on the old album. I also have all the ones that I bought when I became an adult. plus on dvd, i pod ect. I use to talk to Herman in the B.B.B band. I try to get to see the shows when they come to town. My friend Eveylyn is one of the biggest fans. My birthday and Bobbys is 3days apart. I missed the show this year but, I understand there was a big bash that was thrown for Bobby. I hope that everone had a nice time. Much love to Bobby and a belated happy happy birthday. From a long time fan in San Diego ca.

Amen, brother! You must have been with me in junior high, cause you nailed it to a T.
I think you might enjoy my bio of Bobby, Soul of the Man–available at the usual places.
Thanks–good stuff!
