Less compromised with the pop ballad than Bobby Bland was Mississippi's "Little" Milton Campbell, a natural bridge between the Delta, Chicago (rhythm'n'blues) and Memphis (soul), whose I'm A Lonely Man (1958), So Mean To Me (1961), reminiscent of Bobby Bland's I Pity The Fool, Who's Cheating Who? (1965), We're Gonna Make It (1965), Feel So Bad (1967), If Walls Could Talk (1969), Grits Ain't Groceries (1969), a rewrite of Titus Turner's All Around The World (1958), Baby I Love You (1970), fused Howlin' Wolf's shout and Bobby Bland's croon, while That's What Love Will Make You Do (1971), Walking The Back Streets and Crying (1972), Little Bluebird (1973), Behind Closed Doors (1974), Friend of Mine (1976), adopted the ornate arrangements of soul music and displayed an innovative guitar technique.

He managed to transform himself one more time in the 1980s and ride the age of funk music with the catchy The Blues is Alright (1982), Age Ain't Nothin But A Number (1983), the pensive Catch You on Your Way Down (1984), Murder on Your Hands (1984), George Jackson's Annie Mae's Cafe (1986), I'm at the End of My Rainbow (1986), Room 244 (1987), Caught in the Act (1988).
