Bobby Blue (6). Doin' His Thing ‎(LP, Album, Mono).

His California Album was a return to form for Bobby Blue Bland. Having turned his personal life round in 1971, he turned his career round in 1973. For the first time in nearly ten years, his album charted, spending nineteen weeks in the US Billboard 200. Suddenly, he had a critically acclaimed and commercially successful album on his hands. Thirty-eight years later, the album has a timeless quality, like all good music has. On the album are some fantastic songs, brilliantly played by the cream of Las Angeles’ musicians and sung with a combination of passion, sadness and joy by Bobby.

Bobby "Blue" Bland is a master of the sly blues: just when you think a song is going to slip into a predictable blues groove, he cocks back and roars or tosses off a throaty growl that grabs at the base of your spine. It's always magic in person, nearly always magic on records.

A nice record from Bobby – quite different from his 60s sides for Duke/Peacock, and recorded in California (as you might guess from the title!) with a smoother more soulful approach. The style works well for Bobby – and kind of gave him a new lease on life during the 70s, as he mixed his rougher bluesy vocals with some hipper arrangements – still quite deep in soul, but with a compressed sound that creates a new mode of expression.

Bobby 'Blue' Bland, who has died aged 83, was among the great storytellers of blues and soul music. In songs such as I Pity the Fool, Cry Cry Cry and Who Will the Next Fool Be, he created tempestuous arias of love, betrayal and resignation, set against roiling, dramatic orchestrations, and left the listener drained but awed. It was a skill that came gradually. Bland dutifully strolled into the Technicolor sunsets of His California Album (1973), Dreamer (1974) and Reflections in Blue (1977), and in Get On Down with Bobby Bland (1975) he sauntered along Nashville's Music Row. Bobby 'Blue' Bland's core audience was African American, mature and predominantly female. Photograph: Michael Ochs Archives.
