Biography

Growing up in the 1940s on a farm in Iowa with a loving but non-musical family, Elvin seldom heard music as a kid. “This was before TV,” Elvin says, “and on the radio you got a lot of Frank Sinatra and ‘How Much Is That Doggie In the Window’ type of stuff.” The family moved to Tulsa, Oklahoma, when Elvin was 10, in 1952. Tulsa was “totally ... Read more in Amazon's Elvin Bishop Store

Editorial Reviews

Review

When Bishop played guitar with Paul Butterfield in the 1960s he fancied himself a countrified hippie named Pig Boy Cranshaw. His sense of humor remains intact decades later, evidenced on a relaxed blues-oriented rock program shot through with a smart sort of bumpkin levity. He never could sing (it was Mickey Thomas on his 1970s smash "Fooled Around and Fell in Love"), but his guitar rides roughshod over those of many a better-known blues artist. -- © Frank John Hadley 1993 -- From Grove Press Guide to Blues on CD

4.0 out of 5 stars How Do You Rock? December 4, 1999
Format:Audio CD
Elvin Bishop's "Big Fun" is just that. He uses that guitar like a weapon and there are some licks captured here that make my hair stand on end, even after eleven years. I was Elvins Road Manager at the time this was recorded and must have listened to this record in process over 1000 times and it still holds together for me. It is a good time record and I'm just sorry that it didn't sell more copies or be better known. The guy that did the editorial review, Hadley or whatever his name is, has one thing wrong. The persona that Elvin took on, or more acurately was saddled during his Butterfield years with was "Pigboy Crabshaw". Just take a listen to "She puts me in the mood" and you'll realize why he is not "Pigboy Crabshaw" But legendary gutarist Elvin Bishop.

4.0 out of 5 stars The Ol' Devil's Music is Timeless June 7, 2003
Format:Audio CD
I, too, was around during the time this LP was recorded, and for years before and after. There is one thing you can say about Elvin Bishop - he knows how to have a good time and he makes sure y'all go along with him! I would recommend any CD by Elvin. (Hi Whit!)

3.0 out of 5 stars The Sound On Vinyl Is Better December 1, 2008
By Joe
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
The material is good.

The CD sounds a bit edgy or shrill compared to the vinyl album which has a smoother sound.
