"Here's an album anyone looking for great music should own. Has to be as good as any soul or blues album in the 1960's. Not dance music. Slow, simmering, deep but smoothe music from the human heart, and the crisp accompaniment of Bland's backing musicians is stellar and just punctuates the performances perfectly. The arranger and producer need some credits here, too, even though Bland and his band get first dibs on kudos. This is definitive Bobby "Blue" Bland. Make it your first purchase. Cream of the crop stuff. My favorite is "Lead Me On", a recording of haunting beauty. When his voice was in his prime and good form, this is a relief for those having purchased too many albums that overpromise. This one delivers in spades (sic). You won't feeled gipped here; that won't even occur to you. For the newcomer to the blues and the connoisseur of great records alike. A treat of a great set of performances par excellence, and what songs too! A tour-de-force, to use a term we seldom use anymore, because they hardly make great records like this anymore."

"Bobby Bland is one of my favourite singers for decades, and on its initial release this album set new standards for R&B singers. Almost every track on this CD is a classic of the genre: "I pity the fool" and "St James Infirmary" could almost be described as "classic classics" they were so definitive at the time. It was such an advance for a blues singer that one reviewer then described it as "two million steps from the blues". Bland went on to become one of the most highly regarded R&B singers of his generation, influencing the singing style of later singers like Tyrone Davis."
THE FULL RANGE OF EMOTIONS COMES THROUGH LOUD AND CLEAR !!!!

"In high school in Louisiana in 1961 this was our favorite album. The high scool was all white (segregation) but we all loved rhythmn and blues. Bo Didley palayed at our senior dance. Bobby Bluesboy Bland was the greatest of the singers with a voice with unbelievable range. I saw him in 1997 and his voice was still in remarkbly good shape. Two Steps from the Blues is a great album and is definitely unappreciated or should I say under appreciated because if you listen you have to love. Bill Johnson"
