Overview

Guitarist Elvin Bishop's career started in the early '60s playing the blues opposite Michael Bloomfield in the Paul Butterfield Blues Band. Revered in the blues community ever since, Bishop is known for maintaining his smokin' live performances which have kept him rolling on through the years. It was strange then, when, out of nowhere in 1976, Bishop managed to chalk up a number one hit on the pop charts with "Fooled Around and Fell in Love," featuring pre-Starship Mickey Thomas on vocals. While Sure Feels Good: The Best of Elvin Bishop contains material from that same period (including "Fooled Around") that is fun, funky, Southern blues-rock, it should be purchased after absorbing his excellent 2000 live disc (with Smokey Smothers), That's My Partner!, on Alligator Records or the original Butterfield sessions from the '60s.
