Bobby Bland RIP

We are  sorry to hear of the death of Bobby Bland.

A true innovator, he began singing gospel in the 1940’s in Memphis before hybridising the worlds of blues and soul into something else entirely, Bobby Bland is one of the unsung greats who is better known by people covering his songs- Van Morrison, Elvis Costello, Stevie Wonder all covered his songs whilst in 2008 Mick Hucknall did a whole album of his songs.
