The rhythm section is also the perfect complement to Ford's tasteful playing.

Perhaps Robben Ford's first and best recording.

For a long time I thought the only blues players getting attention were the dime-a-dozen Texas blues wanna-be's whose playing was limited to a handful of Stevie Ray-type licks. Then I picked up a copy of "Robben Ford & the Blue Line" and I realized the melodic potential for the blues. Simply put, this album got me fired up about the blues again. It's filled with some of the most inspiring, exciting blues playing I've heard.
Robben has a jazzman's sensibility and knack for rhythmic phrasing that makes his lines among the most meaningful and memorable I've heard. He's often compared to Eric Johnson. While both players have incredible technique, Robben's playing is more down to earth because of his total commitment to the blues. From the raw, funky rock of "The Brother" to the Memphis-tinged "I'm a Real Man" to the mean shuffle of "Prison of Love," Robben demonstrates that he's a true bluesman who oozes chitlin-circuit-approved mojo.
To me, Robben stands among the giants of melodic guitar today - Larry Carlton, Steve Lukather, and Eric Johnson come to mind. If you're a guitarist who's looking to inspire your blues playing or just a fan of good blues guitar, get this album.

Found this album ..., played it alot and liked it, but I didn't realize the complete value of the effort until a couple of years later. This is an **excellent** album, well conceived, produced and recorded. His cover of John Hiatt's "I'm a Real Man" is inspired, and is one of my all time Robben Ford favorites. His amp/guitar tone is absolutely killer and his vocals are actually extremely good on this album, contrary to what some might say. The production values are terrific and really let the music shine through. I believe this was recorded at Chick Corea's Mad Hatter Studios in LA, and it shows.
Life Song (the final, instrumental cut on the album - dedicated to his wife) is one of Robben's finest moments on record, done with incredible taste, finesse and soul.
If you like the blues, you simply cannot, cannot go wrong with this album.

I first picked up a copy of Robben Ford and the Blue Line in 1993, and it quickly became one of my favorite albums. The trio breathes life into the blues yet makes it sound fresh at the same time. Ford's guitar style fits tracks like "Cut Me To the Bone" and "Tell Me I'm Your Man" perfectly. It's very hard to imagine anyone but Robben Ford playing these songs. The rhythm section is also the perfect complement to Ford's tasteful playing. While tasteful, Ford's guitar playing is definitely not over the top like a lot of today's guitarists. So, if you want a taste of what the modern blues should sound like, do yourself a favor. Put Robben Ford and the Blue Line in your shopping cart.

I think there are presently enough reviews here stating that this is album is great. All I can say is that you need to buy this for the final track - "Life Song (One For Annie)". It has some of Robben's most beautiful playing ever - Soulful, powerful and beautiful all at the same time. If you were to buy this album for that song alone, you would not regret your purchase.

I have just about all of Robben's albums and I believe that this is his best work. The interpretations and musicianship are outstanding. Robben's improvisational playing actually comes across more like composition. His technique is extremely melodic. He is, in my opinion, one the best blues guitar players around and his profound knowledge of jazz gives his music a very refreshing "twist". Check out his prowess on "You cut me to the bone", "Prison of love" or "My love will never die".

I completely feel like I can never go wrong with one of his albums. Started out with his more recent stuff and now going backwards. It's all good man! Distinctive style and great guitar tone.

Excellent album. I have just started following this artist, and find that each CD is better than the last. Try this if you like bluesy rock. Nothing really crazy, but just good listening.

To me, Robben Ford is a blues/rock guitarist/vocalist without equal. He is always original and tasteful. Count this as among his best offerings.
