Bobby Bland is such an un rockin' name.
You'd've thought he'd pick a stage name with a bit more vroom...
Like Spencer Spicey or some such.

In the summer of 1968 after my junior year in high school, I was washing and greasing cars at the local Chrysler dealership. A man was hired to fill that position when I returned to school, and he could sing the blues. He sang a song I had never heard before..”Cry, Cry, Cry”.
he sang the song as well as Bland did…the intensity echoed in those stalls. Powerful voice….

Funny thing. Harper Valley PTA by Jeannie C. Riley hit that summer. He loved that song, too…

I saw Bobby Blue Bland in 1970 with Fleetwood Mac and Savoy Brown - he was the opener act - the amount of pot being smoked was extraordinary - and scary to this 10 year old - and then Bland just scared the crap outta of me.
