Speaking of funny, Elvin Bishop delivers hilarious good-time blues on The Skin I'm In, his third release for Alligator. Flavored with Bishop's sizzling guitar, Randy Forrester's tinkling piano, and a raucous horn section, Skin will make you dance AND smile. My favorite tracks deal humorously with middle age, though at 56, Bishop is closing in on his senior citizenship. The former Paul Butterfield guitarist still wields a nasty ax, and his Oklahoma drawl reminds me of Levon Helm, one of my favorite rock singers. Guests include Charlie Musselwhite, Joe Louis Walker and Norton Buffalo. This is a fine album for old farts who still know how to boogie.
