Blixa SoundsVeteran pop singer/songwriter Stephen Bishop will release an expanded and remastered version of his third album, 1980's Red Cab to Manhattan, on May 11. While the record doesn't contain any hits, it notably features guest appearances by Eric Clapton, Phil Collins, Art Garfunkel and Procol Harum's Gary Brooker.

The original album boasted 12 songs, and the reissue includes six bonus tracks, among them a cover of Ray Charles' classic 1961 smash "Hit the Road Jack."

Bishop says of the reissue, "I'm especially excited because Red Cab is my favorite album. It has a lot of variety on it. It has great players including Eric Clapton, Phil Collins and Art Garfunkel. Plus, there are a lot of cool production things, including great computerized keyboard work from Mike Mainieri, who co-produced the album with Tommy Mottola."

Stephen is best known for his 1977 hit "On and On" and the theme song to the 1983 film Tootsie, "It Might Be You." According to his official website, Bishop has one upcoming U.S. concert on his itinerary, an August 17 show in Philadelphia at the SugarHouse Casino.
