A definative rock classic, “Fooled Around and Fell in Love” hits home for a lot of people who grew up in the 70’s.
Here’s more on the song from Wikipedia:
“Fooled Around and Fell in Love” is a single written and performed by blues guitarist Elvin Bishop. It appeared on his 1975 album Struttin’ My Stuff and was released as a single the following year. Bishop does not sing lead vocals on the track; feeling that his gravelly voice wouldn’t do the song justice, he invited vocalist Mickey Thomas, who was a background singer in his band at the time, to sing it. The song peaked at #3 on the Billboard Hot 100 singles chart in May 1976. The record was certified gold by the Recording Industry Association of America on June 23, 1976. The song became a Gold record.
Here we have a great LIVE performance of the song by Elvin Bishop on The Midnight Special from October 21, 1977.
