Get on Down With Bobby Bland: Northern Soul Star!

Bobby "Blue" Bland - These Hands (Small But Mighty)

This mid-tempo mover is one of two Bland tunes that have made their mark in the Northern Soul scene, the other being the excellent tune "Shoes." I'm partial to "These Hands," though, for its lyrics and nice arrangement. Anyone who has ever been in love with anyone knows the sentiment of lyrics.

Tomorrow I plan to conclude this series with another Bland tune and a couple of tunes by artists inspired by Bland.
