"Red" Sings "Blue" on June 17
(Published: June 09, 2008)
One of the most distinctive vocalists in Britain tips his hat to one of the greatest from the American South with the June 17 release of Mick Hucknall's TRIBUTE TO BOBBY. The solo debut from the leader of Simply Red features sizzling versions of songs popularized by the great Bobby "Blue" Bland.
TRIBUTE TO BOBBY was recorded last summer at Hucknall's home studio in England with longtime collaborator Andy Wright behind the boards. While the 12 songs on the new collection benefit from 21st-century production, Mick's worldly wise delivery ensures they remain grounded in the emotional honesty of the blues.
