Oh how I love the internets.
I heard Bobby Bland singing "Further on up the road" on a college radio station the other day and realized just how much more powerful it was compared to the versions I am familiar with.
Just why isn't Bobby Bland heard on the radio? (Salon asked the same question back in 2000 for its "Brilliant Careers" series on Bobby Bland.)
Anyway, a-googlin' I went and found a fine mp3 blog that had the song "Shoes" on it. Such a classic soul track. (Browse around that blog for more delightful music - including Slim Harpo's "Shake your hips".)
Like I said, oh how I love the internets.
