"Originally released in 1961, blues singer Bobby 'Blue' Bland's legendary Two Steps From The Blues has been repeatedly called 'one of the best blues albums of all time', and Bland one of the genre's greatest singers (and top sex symbols in his day), no small feat in a genre so crowded with amazing talent. Throughout '60s and '70s Bland placed over 50 songs on the R&B charts, including 'I Pity The Fool', which shot to No. 1 and 'Turn On Your Love Light', a song that shaped the history of both R&B and rock & roll. Bland got his start singing in the early fifties as a member of a loosely knit group of musicians that included Junior Parker, Johnny Ace and B.B. King that formed around Memphis' famed Beale Street. Together these giants forged the new sound of Memphis blues, a sound that would carry both blues and R&B into the next millennium. Includes two bonus tracks 'Close To You' and 'How Does A Cheatin' Woman Feel'."
