A Blues Revival

When Duke Records was sold to the larger ABC Records, Bland's contract was part of the deal. Under the new label, the singer enjoyed critical success with the release of LPs like His California Album (1973) and Dreamer (1974). The success of the albums introduced Bland to a white, rock-oriented audience.
