CAN’T EVEN DO WRONG RIGHT, with hilariously spot-on cover art by musician/artist Paul Thorn, finds Bishop firing on all cylinders and having fun while doing it. With this album, Bishop has created another highlight in a career that covers fifty years and over 20 albums. Five of the songs are Bishop originals, including “Let Your Woman Have Her Way,” on which Bishop’s friend Mickey Thomas sings lead (this is the first time Thomas, the ex-Jefferson Starship singer, has recorded with Bishop since he provided vocals on Bishop’s classic hit “Fooled Around And Fell In Love”). An outstanding instrumental version of Jimmy Reed’s “Honest I Do” harkens back to Elvin’s childhood: this was the very first blues song he heard coming from Nashville’s WLAC, the late night R&B 50,000 watt powerhouse radio station, beaming all the way to his Oklahoma home. In the 1950s in Oklahoma, everything was racially separated except the radio (“They couldn’t segregate the airwaves,” Bishop recalls). With the addition of his Grammy Award-winning pal Charlie Musselwhite on “Old School” and “No More Doggin’,” CAN’T EVEN DO WRONG RIGHT hits its target at every turn.

Bishop again is ready to share his happy-go-lucky vibe with his fans around the world.
