In case you weren’t quite up for the soothing Anti-Road Rage sounds of Ravel tonight, here’s a little something that should put a smile back on your face – the inimitable Bobby Blue Bland, in concert at the Great American Music Hall in San Francisco on January 12, 1977 – recorded and preserved for posterity by the venerable KSAN-FM in San Francisco and curated by The Terry Hammer Archives, who did a magnificent job taking care of these priceless gems.

Bobby Bland was a regular up and down the West Coast from the late 1960s through the 1970s, performing concerts and clubs and just about anywhere his message did the most good. He was a consummate musician and his vocal style was unique and unmistakable.

If you haven’t heard him, or are familiar with the many records in his vast catalog, but missed hearing him in concert – check this one out. He was a great live act, and his backup band, The Mellow Fellows kicked ass nightly.

Say no more – crank it up and dive in, head first.
