Elvin Bishop

Can't Even Do Wrong Right

Can't Even Do Wrong Right
A masterpiece of rollicking blues and R&B, shot through with Elvin's stinging fretwork and performed with an undeniable spirit of raucous fun.  Include five new Bishop originals, plus Elvin’s take on Jimmy Reed's "Honest I Do," Fats Domino's "Bo Weevil" and Lionel Hampton’s "Hey-Ba-Ba-Re-Bop."  Special guests include Mickey Thomas (of "Fooled Around And Fell In Love" and Jefferson Starship fame) and blues harp icon Charlie Musselwhite.   

Rousing, down-home, feel-good music...spunky rhythms and razor-sharp slide...Bishop's a superb guitarist of great strength and skill...a rockin' good time. --Guitar World
