Elvin Bishop grew up on a farm in Iowa with no electricity and no running water. His family moved to Oklahoma when he was ten. Raised in an all-white community, he had no exposure to blacks or their music except though the radio, and the piercing sound of Jimmy Reed's harmonica got his attention. When he won a scholarship to the University of Chicago, he found himself in the heart of the Chicago blues scene, and he sunk himself totally into the blues life. Dropping out after two years of college, Howlin' Wolf (aka Howlin' Wolf) guitarist Smokey Smothers befriended Bishop and taught him the basics of blues guitar. In the early '60s he teamed up with Paul Butterfield to become the core of the Butterfield Blues Band. They began to become well known in 1963 when they took a job at Big John's on Chicago's North Side.
