Discovering Bobby Long

I remember when I first heard the Black Keys two or three years ago. The sound was different from other bands I had been listening to. Brothers grabbed my attention, and held it.

Imagine my surprise when I learned via @aestheticsgirl that the Black Keys weren’t some new band on the scene. On the contrary, there were five whole previous studio releases to check out plus live albums, collaborations and other stuff.

Lucky me!

I like to think that somewhere down the line, a new fan of Bobby Long‘s will learn that there’s an album called A Winter Tale that came out in February of 2011. It’s a gem that surely brought him additional fans, but deserved to be a bigger hit in my opinion.

Here’s a live version of one of my favorite tracks, Who Have You Been Loving.
