A good-time romp . . . raucous blues with high-energy soloing, mixtures of careening slide and razor-edged bursts, all delivered with unflagging enthusiasm and wit.
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.
Although Bishop has been performing his rollicking brand of electrified front porch blues for over fifty years (his first professional gig was as guitarist for Junior Wells’s band in 1962), he is as vital and creative an artist today as he was when he first hit the national scene in 1965 with the Paul Butterfield Blues Band. He is still as slyly good-humored and instantly crowd-pleasing as he was when he was effortlessly creating solo hits during the 1970s. With his buoyant and deceptively loose-sounding ensemble behind him, he’s also playing some of the most spirited and distinctive blues slide guitar today.
