    Bland was a member (along with B. B. King) of the legendary early-'50s blues commune the Beale Streeters, so this excellent late-'90s live album is something of a homecoming for the man described herein by the M.C. as the World's Greatest Blues Singer. Backed by an excellent big band, Bland runs through a nicely chosen program of his early hits--blues classics like "Farther On Up the Road," "St. James Infirmary," and "I Pity the Fool"--plus some of his more recent material, including the ultimate paranoid blues "She's Putting Something In My Food." He also delivers an impassioned cover of Bill Wither's "Ain't No Sunshine" that almost surpasses the original, and then goes mano a mano with fellow Memphians Bobby Rush and Johnny Taylor on a definitive "Stormy Monday."
