Editorial Reviews

All Music Guide - Ross Boissoneau
Like the first track says, Delbert McClinton is like an old weakness, coming on strong. McClinton's music is a hybrid of rock, country, and blues, though that's much too analytical for this roadhouse. Sung and played throughout with sass and a knowing grin, this is music that speaks to everyone. And for once the guest artists add just the right amount, neither dominating nor lessening the proceedings.
