Delbert McClinton: Tall, Dark & Handsome

Read "Tall, Dark & Handsome" reviewed by Doug Collette


On his last album Prick of the Litter (Hot Shot Records, 2017 ), Grammy-Award winning [Delbert McClinton wholly fulfilled his image as the contemporary definition of modern Texas style r&b. He certainly didn't do it alone--his band the, Self-Made Men, added savvy and soul--but the man who showed John Lennon how to blow the harmonica imbued ...

John Hiatt: The Eclipse Sessions

Read "The Eclipse Sessions" reviewed by Doug Collette


Since John Hiatt hit his artistic and commercial stride with Bring The Family (A&M, 1987), the most listenable and durable albums of his have been those recorded with a band like the one appearing there (eventually known as Little Village: Ry Cooder, Nick Lowe and Jim Keltner). Offering comparably uniform musicianship in proportionate support of this ...

Greg Skaff: Soulmation

Read "Soulmation" reviewed by Dan Bilawsky


Guitarist Greg Skaff is all about the grease, grit, and grooves on Soulmation. It's a logical extension of his previous work--guitar-fronted organ group dates like East Harlem Skyline (Zoho Music, 2009) and 116th & Park (Zoho Music, 2012)--but it's a tad heavier, raunchier, and funkier than anything Skaff threw us on those records. His approach here ...

Delbert McClinton: Prick of the Litter

Read "Prick of the Litter" reviewed by Doug Collette


Texas-born Delbert McClinton is one of America's great natural resources. And that three-time Grammy Award-winning reputation is based on more than just his nurturing of John Lennon's interest in the harmonica back in the early '60s when McClinton, as part of the duo Delbert and Glen, were touring with The Beatles. A string of more than ...

Delbert McClinton and the Self Made Men: Prick of the Litter

Read "Prick of the Litter" reviewed by C. Michael Bailey


Delbert McClinton is from Lubbock, by way of Fort Worth Texas. I don't suspect that anyone would accuse Texas of being a “Soul" capital of anything. Isn't that Memphis, Muscle Shoals, Detroit, and Philadelphia? How can we account for who may possibly be the best white soul singer? Beginning in 1972, partnering with singer Glen Clark, ...
