Editorial Reviews

Grammy Award winner and Americana legend, Delbert McClinton returns to where he began his recording career over 40 years ago, a duets record with Glen Clark. Delbert & Glen released 2 albums in the early 70s. The two remained friends and now have reunited for Blind, Crippled & Crazy. Produced by Gary Nicholson, the 2013 album delivers all the swampy blues, soul and honky tonk sounds with lyrics and harmonies full of wisdom and wit.

Raw talent, great performances, clever lyrics, boogie-woogie/honky tonk rhythm and blues to laugh and cry along with (yes, I ended that with a preposition). Delbert McClinton and Glen Clark, two legendary Texas sons, have each been gracing various music circuits in the US and around the world for decades. Their collaborative efforts began more than 40 years ago in Texas, and culminated in the initial releases of their first two highly-acclaimed albums, "Delbert & Glen" and "Subject to Change." 40-years' on, Delbert & Glen are back together with new material for their devotees as well as new fans, and they do not disappoint. Every piece on this album is "just right." Quick-witted lyrics and voices drenched with experience, an unspoken "Oh, yeah!" attitude, and a winking side-glance of understanding ring through each number. For example, Peace in the Valley is not a gospel song but, rather, a quick turn-of-phrase: "There's been Peace in the Valley (Girl, since you've been gone!)" (wink!) In my humble opinion, there is not enough of this music around in clubs, concert halls, arenas, or on the radio anymore. If you are "new" to Delbert & Glen, or either individual artist, this album will appeal to afficianados of blues, honky-tonk, rhythm & blues, or country music. Thank you, Delbert & Glen, for this fun and rockin' third album! Please get goin' on the fourth! I'm already ready for it!

5.0 out of 5 stars One of the best of 2013, period June 26, 2013
Format:Audio CD
This is most decidedly NOT intended as a formal review, as, quite frankly, I'm having way too much of a blast listening to the album to bother dissecting it. Simply put, if "Blind, Crippled & Crazy" doesn't compel you to cover your room in sawdust and chicken wire, crack your best friend over the head with a beer bottle, and then spend the rest of the night telling him how much you love him, man, this is not the music for you. This is roots rock at its absolute apex.

4.0 out of 5 stars Delbert and Glen back together again and rockin' June 20, 2013
Format:Audio CD
Apparently Delbert McClinton made his recording debut back in the early 70s in a duo with his fellow Texan Glen Clark and this record sees them reunited for a record which blends R&B, country, blues and rock 'n' roll with humor and the virtuosity of seasoned musicians who have spent nearly 50 years on the road. The record was produced by McClinton, Clark and Delbert's songwriting partner Gary Nicholson and features members of McClinton's touring band as well as drummer Tom Hambridge, Kevin McKendree on keyboards and Anson Funderburgh, who contributes fabulous blues guitar to "Oughta know," a song written by McClinton's son Clay.

The album gets off to a great start with the rockin' "Been around a long time" and "World of hurt" is Glen's song that was recorded by John Mayall and contains Delbert's distinctive harmonica playing. The duo's natural sound seems to be an easy rolling country boogie - a bit like J.J. Cale - such as "There's been peace in the valley" but they can also do some nice ballads as in "Just when I need you the most". Everything here is pretty laid back and relaxed but they can also dig in when needed but these guys obviously don't need to try too hard to produce great music

Delbert McClinton and Glen Clark are long time musical compadres who also happen to be Texas roots music legends. The duo recorded a pair of albums as Delbert & Glen in the early '70s, but as their individual careers took off (McClinton as a recording artist and performer, Clark primarily as a songwriter), additional collaborations became a topic of discussion rather than a studio reality. Having rolled around the idea of a new project for more than a decade, the pieces finally came together, with McClinton's songwriting partner Gary Nicholson helping to craft this album's original material.

The ease with which these master musicians rekindle their rapport is nearly as breathtaking as the music that their collaboration has produced. Both players wear their maturity well, with the raspy edges of their voices adding authority to songs that retain a rye attitude. Don't expect apologies for their seasoned points-of-view; as they sing on the album's opener, they're not old, they've just been around a long time. The experience of those years fuels both their performing and songwriting, though as they sing in "Whoever Said it Was Easy," even the wisdom of age is powerless to unknot the eternal mysteries of relationships.

The album's mix of blues, R&B and funk reaches back to the duo's earlier recordings, with a vibe that's warm and comfortable. The band slips effortlessly into the deep musical grooves, as if they're playing the second set for an appreciative weeknight crowd.

I was turned on to Delbert a few years ago with the album he did with Dick50. I think I like that one better but this still grooves.
