iTunes Review

Dreamer isn't just the turning point in Bobby Bland's career, when he fully assumed the "Sinatra Of The Blues" mantle. It's also an important turning point for the blues itself. These tracks are slick, upscale, and urban but welling up from the soul of a man who came up hard and hasn't let go of the hurt. They're about having everything except happiness, made brutally real by the tension between the Cadillac-smooth arrangements and Bland's honey-mustard voice. The deep pain that simmers throughout this album is as real as anything you will hear, but Bland's gift has always been his ability to open a wound and soothe it at the very same time.

Customer Reviews

This CD Rocks !!

This is a classic album! My dad turned me onto it as a child and I still have it as an adult. I never get tired of listening to it. This is a blues cd. Guys...if she broke your heart and other stuff, give this disc a spin. Enjoy.

Some of Bobby "Blue" Bland's best work

Bobby "Blue" Bland defined the Southern Soul blues genre on his way up with fantastic songs on Duke in the 50s and 60s, enjoys his status as an old master with wonderful recordings on Malaco now, but this gem from the 70s is the pinnacle of a stellar career.

Bobby Bland earned his enduring blues superstar status the hard way: without a guitar, harmonica, or any other instrument to fall back upon. All Bland had to offer was his magnificent voice, a tremendously powerful instrument in his early heyday, injected with charisma and melisma to spare. Just ask his legion of female fans, who deemed him a sex symbol late into his career. For all his promise, Bland's musical career ignited slowly. He was a founding member of the Beale Streeters, the fabled Memphis...
