Rock & Roll Band" is a song written by Tom Scholz and first released by the rock band Boston on the band's eponymous debut album. It is one of six songs Scholz worked on in his basement in 1974 and 1975 before Boston got its record contract, five of which eventually appeared on the Boston album. The "Rock and Roll Band" demo was finished in 1974, along with three of the six. However, Scholz had begun writing the song years earlier, in the early 1970s.
Rock and roll was breaking down the old barriers between race and pop, and Duke Records had been sold to Don Robey. Bland spent the latter half of the Fifties maturing into a masterful singer and assured entertainer. His hallmark was his supple, confidential soul-blues delivery. Working with Joe Scott-a band leader and producer-Bland recorded straight blues such as 1957’s Farther On Up the Road, which reached Number Five on the R&B charts, and the following year’s Little Boy Blue, a record of surprising intensity and power. That record marked the end of Bland’s hard-blues period, and he subsequently evolved into more of an intimate soul-blues stylist. Bobby Bland was inducted into the Blues Hall of Fame in 1981 and the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame in 1992. In 1997 he received a Grammy Lifetime Achievement Award.
