#707 (Marsh 1001)  
I Pity The Fool/ Close To You by Bobby Bland

Label: Duke 332 Year: 1961
Condition: M $80.00
I Pity The Fool/ Close To YouThis is a new, unplayed promo copy from the Louise Neal collection. Besides the classic A side, which Dave Marsh pegs at #707 in his list of the 1,001 greatest singles, this 45 has a swinging, uptempo B side as well! Truly one of the key Bobby Bland 45s to own. Note: This beautiful promo copy is so close to perfection that I wonder how it could be any nicer! The labels have no noteworthy flaws, and the audio is jaw-dropping... pristine Mint. The vinyl has no scuffing but exhibits very light storage wear via some subtle visual artifacts, so I'm grading it Near Mint. But overall, this is simply a beautifully preserved, pristine Mint copy of the rare promo for Duke 332. (Sorry to gush so... I really am in awe!)
