Delbert McClinton

Imagine a veteran Texas roadhouse songwriter releasing a double live CD from a tape he lovingly crafted for a Norwegian radio station after playing the Bergen Blues Festival. It’s not only available without paying Euros on Ebay but also well-distributed in the United States. And nobody really even makes fun of it. In fact, in some circles, this particular offering from Delbert McClinton is the most sought-after live CD since the rerelease of Michelle Shocked’s Texas Campfire Tapes. Even the most avid McClinton fans know that his studio albums lack the caterwauling abandon crucial to his shows. Live, his songs have always turned Delbert doubters into true believers. The kind who might, just might, follow him to Norway.
