5.0 out of 5 stars sadly out of print 2 Jan 2007
By Gordon Pfannenstiel - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Audio CD
The early 90s was a great time for CD reissues of old material. In 1992 MCA released the first of 3 double CDs that provided a comprehensive retrospective of Bland's Duke years. That '92 release covered the years 1952-59, with this release covering what many believe to be Bland's salad days, from 1960 to 1966. It was released 2 years later, in 1994. Finally in 1996 came the last double disc installment covering the last three years of Bland's tenure at the Duke label.

If there is any criticism to be leveled at this career overview, it's that it might actually be too extensive. Particularly early, there is a lot of similarity between many of the cuts. Also, the '92 release has two things going against it: it is the earliest music and has the pretty rough audio quality of many of the songs. This is further exacerbated by a low output and thin remastering job. The problem was rectified with Volume 2. Certainly these tracks were much better recorded, but the remastering job is also far superior. In fact, the audio quality on most of these tracks is breathtaking, making even the weaker and derivitive tracks an interesting listen.

Bland was at the peak of his powers in the early to late sixties, and he had Joe Scott's exciting arrangements, Wayne Bennet's crackling blues riffs and future James Brown drummer Jabo Starks' driving rhythms to provide ample power to throw him into overdrive. This was the epitime of jazzy blues. Everything was just right and blended together seamlessly. When the original material was excellent or the cover well-chosen, it was as good as it gets. Period.

It's sad that this series has been discontinued. One look at what this set is going for on the used market and you know it was a mistake to discontinue it. This is classic stuff; the time, the singer and the style came together in glorius synchronicity. It will not be repeated, so MCA should do the right thing and reissue this wonderful series. Six discs is not too much Bobby "Blue" Bland. Meanwhile, I'm sorry if you don't have this. If you have the money, volume 2 is worth every penny you will have to part with to find it and own it.

5.0 out of 5 stars Just discovered something special here !!! 18 Sep 2005
By Austin F. Smith - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Audio CD
I am 24 years old, and I just brought this one home from the library. I feel like I have found something really amazing, and I had to come write a review on amazon. Great sound, especially for being from 1960-63 ish. Great performances, classic songs. Most of these songs I have heard in places throughout my life, and now I know who it was all along. Buy it now, or at least borrow a copy somewhere, It's great stuff.

5.0 out of 5 stars The greatest BB 2 cd hit collection ever put together WORD! 15 Jan 2004
By Dan M. Ellis - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Audio CD
First of all, Bobby Blue Bland is without a doubt the most gifted singer of his generation in the Blues/RB field, and when united with the writers, musicians and arrangements of the Duke team, it was a marriage blessed to create songs that will never
grow old,cold or fail to warm your heart deep in your soul. This collection is without dispute the very best of those happily married years. It a shame they didn't have more kids/songs to keep them coming back together, cuzz when they were together they couldn't be beat and were as hot as the funk brothers in motown. Hope someone takes a hint and tells their story, WORD!Yours truly, OldSchoolMaster1,Daniel M. Ellis.

5.0 out of 5 stars One of the best collections I've ever bought 13 Feb 2013
By Explorer - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
I was in a record/CD store when I heard amazing soul music on the sound system. I heard song after song which sounded like a hit, but I didn't recognize any of them. I asked who it was, and that was how I learned about Bobby "Blue" Bland.

I've since bought this for friends who were similarly unfamiliar with it, and they have all loved it.

It remains in constant rotation at home, in the car, and at work.

5.0 out of 5 stars This is it! 24 Sep 2012
By jtb - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
If you are a fan of Bobby Bland; these two discs are a "must have". The Horn arrangements are great. Still, the guitar work by W. Bennett, Pat Hare, etc. is out of this world. The only way to play this kind of stuff!. The Piano accompaniment is on the same level as the guitar work. You can't find guys like this any more. check the drummer out. That is the way to play!!! Listen to "Jelly, Jelly, Jelly". That's the real deal. Bland at his best! In conclusion, you don't have to be a player to understand what I'm saying here, but any player knows what I'm talking about.
