Yield Not To Temptation

Robert Calvin Bland was born on January 27, 1930 in the small town of Rosemark, Tennessee. He first sang with a Gospel group called The Miniatures and then he moved on to a Blues group that was called the Beale Streeters. This group included such legends as B.B. King, Junior Parker, Johnny Ace, and Rosco Gordon. Bobby ‘ Blue’ Bland didn't play any instruments or write any music, but what he brought to the songs made it his own all the way !

Do you know what year and label these songs are from ?
Cant find them on any of my Bobby Bland records.

Two steps from the Blues is one of the best records ever made.

Rock On
