This was a lovely surprise when I found it and it left me wondering why Delbert McClinton isn’t much better known.
McClinton is one of those synthesisers of music that take inspiration from different sources – blues, soul, country and rock – to create a terrific amalgamation of good time music that I tend to fit into my “rock & roll and early R&B” category. It might be my favourite category.
My only quibble about the album is that it’s very short but it definitely leaves me wanting more. It’s length is going to stop it reaching the peaks of 29 out of 30 in my rating system but early impressions suggest a score of 27 or 28. I also want to explore his other live albums.
