Album Review

Age is no hindrance to Bobby "Blue" Bland doing what he does best — recording and entertaining. The husky-throated blues singer, who was close to 70 when this CD dropped, still has that growl that makes body hair stand on end, and he forges on stronger than ever without any noticeable quality drops — not recording-wise, anyway.
