1962

WHO WILL THE NEXT FOOL BE * BOBBY BLAND * DUKE 347 * USA

Bobby Bland was thirty two when he recorded this scorcher; I have always thought of this type of big man Soul as being sung by someone who is paradoxically both old aged and still in early manhood - the same illogic applies to female singers in this genre. Written and first recorded by Charlie Rich on Phillips International the previous year, Who Will The Next Fool Be is very much a Country song and very much a Soul song.
