A CLASSIC GEM

"Absolutely one of legendary Blands best albums from the early seventies.
A hands down masterpiece. Not a filler song to be found on the whole set.
Bland delivers with a top notch band backing him on songs that cover all shades of blues from the bitter "cold day in hell", to the fun rocking "whos fooling who". His smooth icy warning on "I wouldnt treat a dog..." will leave you apologizing out loud. A well deserved vinyl to cd treasure."
Soulful But Uneven

"Bobby Blue Bland has one of the all-time great voices for the blues. This album is one I listened to a lot when it was first released. It is much more in a soul style than his earlier recordings. Five super songs, Ain't No Love In The Heart Of The City, I'm Not Going To Be The First To Cry, Yolanda, Dreamer, and Who's Fooling Who. The rest of the songs are more or less forgettable keeping this from being a five star CD. If you want to put some great stuff on your I-Pod, buy this or just download those five."
Atmospheric soulful early '70s Blues.

"Together with Little Milton this man has to have one of the most recognizable & imitated voices in music. Take note please because this c.d. is timeless. The songs will leave you breathless from the very first track which is "Ain't no love in the heart of the city"...a song later covered by Dave Coverdales rock band "Whitesnake" and also Walter "Wolfman" Washington. But just listen to this original version because NOBODY sings it like Bobby Blue Bland! Bobby Blands voice was MADE for this song. He smoothly sings about life and it's hardships, the ups & downs, and his lyrics apply to some stage in our lives. This album contains some fine guitar work from a young Larry Carlton.
"24 Hour Blues" is the real deal as is the title track, "Dreamer". Smoky, growling and sensual.Pour yourself a drink, turn the lights down low, spin this disc and let Bobby tell you about life."
