It's almost unbelievable that Elvin Bishop is still active as he enriched the Paul Butterfield Blues Band in the sixties with his excellent guitar playing. With numerous guests, including Charlie Musselwhite, he has recorded an intense and beautiful "Old School" album. From the title track, a midtempo blues, the popular "Blues With A Feeeling" (here with a slight soul touch) to blues with country influences ("Bo Weevil") he enriches everything with his economical but effective guitar playing and his still individual vocals. For traditionalists!
