B. King makes all of the lists.&nbsp;Georgie&nbsp;Fame is usually there,&nbsp;John Lee Hooker too.&nbsp;There’s J. J.&nbsp;Cale and a few others.</p><p>Then there’s Bobby Blue Bland.&nbsp;He’s like the wallpaper, he always seems to be there.</p> Sat, 02 Aug 2014 15:00:00 +0000 Marc Applegate 59115 at http://www.kunc.org 'Bland' Does Not Describe Bobby Blue Bland Rory Block: Perhaps Today's Most Important Delta Blues Artist http://www.kunc.org/post/rory-block-perhaps-todays-most-important-delta-blues-artist <p>http://youtu.be/WHqiG1TdkZk</p><blockquote><p>"Today she is widely regarded as the top female interpreter and authority on traditional country blues worldwide."</p></blockquote><p align="right">-The Blues Foundation</p><p>Princeton, New Jersey, born and Manhattan raised, Rory Block grew up surrounded by the Greenwich Village folk scene, but it is the Delta Blues that she has made her own.
