Recorded during the “Urban Cowboy” days of the early 1980s, Ralph’s was / is located on Wolf Lake in Yazoo City, MS.
This was an extremely popular spot, and many Friday and Saturday nights, you’d find the Earl Bishop Band packing
the house. Co-owned by brothers Ralph and Ed Gregory, many bands, local and otherwise were always welcome
the bass player for the Earl Bishop Band have all gone on to their reward, but the memories of the good times and good friends
will never be forgotten. It was during these good times that the Earl Bishop Band recorded 5 live tapes, rightfully entitled
“Live at Ralph’s Shake on the Lake.” These are the songs from those 5 tapes. Ralph, Ed and Paul, this page is dedicated to you.

Click on the name of the song to hear it.
NOTE: When you see a song with “Revisited” as part of the title, this means that it was part of the
show on a different night than the first - probably on a Saturday, rather than a Friday night -
(but not always).
If you are
reading this and listening to the songs, you were probably part of the crowd at
Ralph’s Shake on the Lake.
Thank you for being our loyal fans. Without you, it would not be the same.
