Bobby "Blue" Bland and Wayne Bennett


One of the names that kept coming up as I started looking into the Duke record label was the late guitar player Wayne Bennett. Supposedly a major influence on Eric Clapton. Many accolades have been written about him. Listening to this and other tracks you can hear what a beautiful player he truly was. He played with many great performers including Jackie Wilson, Jerry Butler, Jimmy Reed and Ramsey Lewis, in a variety of styles. Died far too young.
