Who Is Delbert McClinton?
The venerable Delbert McClinton is a legend among Texas roots music aficionados, not only for his amazing longevity, but for his ability to combine country, blues, soul, and rock & roll as if there were no distinctions between any of them in the best time-honored Texas tradition. A formidable harmonica player long before he recorded as a singer, McClinton’s career began in the late ’50s, yet it took him nearly two decades to evolve into a bona fide solo artist. A critics’ darling and favorite of his peers. McClinton started becoming a household name in the ’90s helped by radio airplay and a Grammy win. In 2001 Delbert released Nothing Personal. This album proved to be the most successful of his career, gaining substantial airplay on Americana radio and ending up one of the year’s biggest hits on Billboard’s Blues Album. The impressive Cost of Living was released in 2005.
This release features 20 tracks – chronicling McClinton’s early, formative years.
