Bobby bland - farther up the road / sometime tomorrow - Bobby Blue Bland | 100 Greatest Singers of All Time.


Bland called it a "squall" — the choked, gospel-inspired near-scream that became his trademark. "I got the idea from Rev. Franklin, Aretha's father," Bland told Rolling Stone . "I had to work with that a long time before I got it to perfection." But Bland, whose admirers range from Van Morrison to Jay-Z, was more than a blues shouter — on the quieter moments of signature tunes such as "I Pity the Fool" and "Turn On Your Love Light," he could just as easily adopt a smooth, uptown croon, complete with elegant vibrato, like his early hero Nat "King" Cole. "If I could sing like Bobby Bland," said his longtime collaborator . King, "I'd be a happy man." Adds Gregg Allman, "It's a one-of-a-kind voice — I wonder how many people tore up their throats trying to imitate that shout."

A DVD was also released along with the album. It contains a documentary which was filmed in Memphis, Tennessee in November 2007.

In 1966, the song (titled as "Love Lights," and incorrectly credited to the Sonics ' bandleader Gerry Roslie) was recorded by the Rascals , appearing as part of a medley with the Motown tune " Mickey's Monkey " on the album Collections . In 1967, the song was released as a single by Jerry Lee Lewis and included on his album Soul My Way (Smash SRS 67097). Lewis's recording was re-released in 1972 as a follow up to his hit recording of " Chantilly Lace " and appeared briefly in the lower reaches of the Billboard Hot 100 . It was also included on the 1972 album The 'Killer' Rocks On . In 1968, The Human Beinz released their version on Capitol Records that became a number one chart hit in Japan. [8] Also in 1968, Bill Black 's Combo recorded the song and was included in the album by the same name. It peaked at number 82 on the pop charts both in the US Billboard Hot 100 and Canadian RPM charts, making it the group's last pop chart entry. Tom Jones performed it on the April 18, 1969 episode of the This Is Tom Jones television series. Before joining Grand Funk Railroad , Mark Farner and Don Brewer covered this song as "Love Lights" and is included on Monumental Funk . In 1972, Edgar Winter's White Trash recorded the song for the live album Roadwork . Also in 1972, the song was recorded by Bob Seger on the album Smokin' .'s . Country Music legend Conway Twitty recorded the song on his 1980 album Heart and Soul . More recently, a version of the song performed by the Blues Brothers appeared in the 1998 film Blues Brothers 2000 . John Boutté adapted the song with different lyrics as "Treme Song" and appears on his 2003 album Jambalaya . It was later used as the theme song for Treme , a 2010–2013 HBO television drama series. It has been a regular feature of guitar soloist Jeff Beck 's touring set-list since at least 2015, usually under the title "Lonnie On The Move", in deference to Lonnie Mack's aforementioned 1964 instrumental adaptation.

The Bluesway subsidiary was established in 1967 to record blues music. The label lasted into 1974, with the last new releases coming in February, 1974. Mono albums had the "BL" prefix and stereo albums had the "BLS" prefix. Several of the Bluesway albums were also available in quadraphonic. These are indicated by the "BLQ" prefix.

The first Bluesway label was blue with black print. A blue and black Bluesway logo was above the center hole. This label was used from the start into mid-1968. The second Bluesway label was black with a blue band around the perimeter of the label. Above the center hole was a logo with BluesWay in a multicolor box next to the ABC logo in a box to the right of "BluesWay"
