Mick Hucknall “Tribute To Bobby” Track By Track
Farther Up The Road
“Farther On Up The Road” was the first song I heard by Bobby. I heard this song in Liverpool in a club called Eric’s, and the manager of the club was a guy called Roger Eagle who was a huge Bobby Bland fan, and he in fact managed my first band the Frantic Elevators for two years. Roger was probably my biggest musical mentor and I discovered a lot of music through Roger.
Ain’t That Lovin’ You
I first heard a live version, actually, of Bobby Bland’s and what I like about this version is this rolling baseline that we have on Andy’s arrangements. It’s very groovy and I love the horns inside the chorus, it’s a very groovy and funky track and I think we’re really going to enjoy playing this one live....
