Elvin Bishop’s Raisin’ Hell Revue
Live On The Legendary Rhythm & Blues Cruise

He may have slipped off the pop charts after “Fooled Around And Fell In Love” in 1975, but Elvin Bishop and his trademark red Gibson guitar have remained busy ever since. This rollicking live set, recorded on a last year on an oceanic “blues cruise,” swaggers and swings through a steaming set of rootsy R&B, groovy barnyard boogie and deep-fried Chicago blues. Listen to “Calling All Cows,” “The Night Time is the Right Time,” “Dyin’ Flu” and the 10 other tasty treats (including a reworked version of “Fooled Around”) dished up by Bishop and his musical shipmates, and it’s easy to imagine just how much this high-seas party boat was rockin’. ($14.99)
