Bobby Bland, Farther Up The Road, Duke

This is a really cool tune. It starts with sax and guitar doubling the same blues based riff. As the tune progresses, the guitar plays nice riffs around the vocal lines, but the tone really is very cool. The playing is very solid. Actually, the whole band is really good. Bobby delivers strong clear lyrics. His voice has a slight raspiness and is the featured line in the mix… right up front. Very cool song that is going on the personal mix for sure.
