Bobby Rush explains: “I was talking about the things I should have done and things I’ve done. You’ll realize later the things I did were great things. When you do all you can, it may not be enough, but it’s enough in your heart. One of these days you will find out what I did is okay and you’re gonna need a man like me. When you are with another man who didn’t do as good as I did, you’ll realize what I did was enough.”
About All My Love For You, Rush adds: “I wanted to approach this album to be a collection of songs for how I got to where I am now. Sonically, I made albums in different directions recently like the solo acoustic Rawer than Raw and full production album Porcupine Meat. I wanted to do something that had the rawness in it, the commercial side of it, and have the Blackness and whiteness inside of it. I want to thank people for letting me be myself. Now I have crossed over but I haven’t crossed out. With the title, I wasn’t talking just about a woman, but everyone who has anything to do with Bobby Rush: the fans, the media, the promoters, the label and distributor, booking agents, management, and anyone else who has contributed to my life and career, this is All My Love For You.”
“You’re Gonna Need a Man Like Me” follows the releases of “I’m Free,” “I’m The One,” and “One Monkey Can Stop The Show,” which have been praised by Garden & Gun, American Songwriter, The Bluegrass Situation, Jazziz, NPR’s New Music Friday playlist, and more. The new album follows his Chicken Heads 50th Anniversary EP featuring Buddy Guy, Gov’t Mule, and Christone “Kingfish” Ingram; his Grammy-winning 2020 album Rawer Than Raw; and his acclaimed autobiography I Ain’t Studdin’ Ya: My American Blues Story. In 2021, Rush was profiled by The New York Times for a career spanning feature following his second Grammy win and the release of his book.
