Tears Fall Like Rain

Razor-sharp blues riffs, a piano tinkling faintly in the background, horns kicking in... And then you haven't even heard that mighty voice yet. Every soul cat worth his salt should own Bobby "Blue" Bland's 1961 masterpiece Two Steps From The Blues. "I want you to cry - cry me a river... I want you to - yes! - I want you to cry me a sea... yes I know someone's gonna hurt you, just like you've been a-hurtin' me..."

Bobby "Blue" Bland - Cry Cry Cry
