Elvin Bishop - Hometown Boy Makes Good

Elvin Bishop - Hometown Boy Makes Good.  You might know by know that I really like Elvin Bisphop and that one of my all time favorite songs is Fooled Around and Fell in Love.  Hometown Boy Makes Good is also on my all-time favorite record label: Capricorn.  The Tower of Power horns are credited with playing on this record.  Some in the group Elvin assembles for this album (and one or two others) is a precursor to a newly reconstituted lineup of Jefferson Starship, with of course Mickey Thomas singing, and Donny Baldwin drumming, later joining said group. The Executive Producer is one Mr. Bill Szymczyk so this record, from 1976, I am guessing, would have been cut down at Criteria Studios.  Bishop made a significant impression on album-oriented rock FM radio stations with his "Travelin' Shoes" album in 1975, and a year later, in 1976, he released his most memorable single, "Fooled Around and Fell in Love", which peaked at #3 in the U.S. Billboard Hot 100 chart (and #34 in the UK charts).  That great song in on his 1975 album titled Struttin' My Stuff.
