Bobby "Blue" Bland-Cry Cry Cry

This is from one of my favorite albums of all time, "Two Steps From the Blues," by the great Bobby "Blue" Bland. One little complaint though, is it only me or is the bass kind of off key all the way through?

The whole album is like that, the bass I mean. It strikes me as "brother-in-law" bass playing, like he hired his brother-in-law as a favor to his sister. As a result, this is one of the very few instances in which I would welcome a digital replacement of the offending musician.

Great song though, regardless. Real lessons in these songs, for those with ears to hear them.
