When guitar virtuoso Mike Bloomfield left the Paul Butterfield Blues Band to form Electric Flag, many cynical scene watchers thought PBBB was down for the count. However, with Elvin Bishop’s magnificent metamorphosis to lead guitar player on The Resurrection of Pigboy Crabshaw, those nattering nabobs were quickly quieted. The album, titled in honor of Bishop’s nickname, found the band moving in an R&B direction, aided by the addition of a horn section manned by David Sanborn, Gene Dinwiddle and Keith Johnson. This newly-minted ensemble is especially potent on tracks like “Born Under a Bad Sign,” “Double Trouble” and “Drivin’ Wheel.” Far from being over, the PBBB launched a new phase of their career with the release of this seminal album. This Sundazed reissue was carefully remastered from the original analog session tapes and pressed on A-1, bees’ knees, high-definition vinyl for the utmost in aural excellence. All hail Pigboy Crabshaw!
