Robert Cray Live at the BBC

Robert Cray is one of the few blues artists who managed to cultivate a mainstream following in the 1980s and 90s. During the course of a long-running career that began in the 1970s, he uniquely blended elements of rhythm & blues, pop and traditional blues to win fans over to a more contemporary blues sound.

In 1988 Cray consolidated his burgeoning reputation with the excellent album 'Don't Be Afraid Of The Dark', which featured some raucous saxophone sounds care of David Sanborn. For the follow-up 'Midnight Stroll', Cray adopted a new line-up that made for a tougher sound, moving him away from mainstream blues towards R&B and soul.

Robert Cray continues to record and perform live, and to date has received five Grammy Awards for his innovative style.

This double CD, set for UK release on January 28th, 2008, features the very best of Robert Cray's BBC Concert performances, recorded between 1988-1991 during the tours to promote the Grammy Award winning albums 'Don't Be Afraid Of The Dark' and 'Midnight Stroll', both of which made the UK and US charts.

"Robert Cray is not only making great music, he's making history. With a few used to be that there was the blues and there were the masses and never the twain shall meet. But Cray, who obviously is respected in blues circles, is a press darling and crossover smash." (Dan Forte - Guitar Player)
