The Earls Of Duke - Bobby "Blue" Bland & Little Junior Parker

The Earls Of Duke
In 1958, with Don Robey’s record company stock on the rise, he formulated a touring review from his biggest R&B stars. The review was known as "Blues Consolidated" and the headliners were invariably Bobby "Blue" Bland and Herman "Little Junior" Parker. Bobby "Blue" Bland had started as a valet and PA to Parker and other Memphis Bluesmen in the late 1940s, but rapidly became a star performer, scoring hit after hit well into the 1980s, many of his records being much covered blues classics. Little Junior Parker is another blues and oddly, Rockabilly legend, whose "Mystery Train" did much to make Elvis what he became...working with such figures as Sam Phillips and Ike Turner, Little Junior Parker had a string of increasingly larger hits right through until 1969, when his new label Capitol started cutting him on ill-advised Beatles covers. But the tough 'Drownin' On Dry Land' deservedly gave him his last R&B chart success in early 1971 which sadly was the same year as his death. It would be thirty years later that he would be honoured by finally being inducted into The Blues Hall Of Fame. Both Hall Of Famer's, both amazing performers, both at the bedrock of the music we know and love can you resist!
