Elvin Bishop Getting’ My Groove BackElvin Bishop Getting’ My Groove Back
Released by Blind Pig Records in 2005

This is pretty much classic Elvin Bishop-style. It’s a little angry, a little soulful, and a little reflective. All-in-all it was OK but not his best work. Keep in mind I think his best work was probably with the Butterfield Blues Band. Anyway, 9 cuts with too many talented sidemen to list here. Not a travelin’ sized crew, but like 15 different players.

1 – What The Hell Is Going On – Lonnie Mack influence here on the guitar riffs
2 – I’ll be Glad – Nice drivin’ 4 bar sound
3 – Swiss Dreams – Slow Bluesy version of the old Don Williams CW hit
4 – That’s my thing - ??OK??
5 – Blues Train – Nice shuffle beat sounds like the intro song for a live set
6 – He’s A Dog – Could cut this out ??
7 – Got TO Be New Orleans – Good dance beat
8 – Come On Blues – Cool cut Good mojo
9 – Party ‘Til The Cows Come Home – Good piano good horn blues

As I said earlier OK but not his best work, but still a 4.3 on the STLBluesometer.

Later – Gator.
