Elwood’s Blues Breaker: Elvin Bishop “Can’t Even Do Wrong Right”
Elvin Bishop was an Oklahoma lad who won a full scholarship to the University of Chicago to study physics. He went to Chicago all right, but ended up studying the blues instead. Five years in the Paul Butterfield Blues Band. Then he started his own band. That gave him an actual hit record, “Fooled Around and Fell In Love.” But he always stays true to the blues. Elvin Bishop has had a long career playing with others, and inviting others to play with him. His latest is more of that great stuff. This is the title track of his new release, “Can’t Even Do Wrong Right.”
