Product Description

Amazon.com

This double-disc, 19-song concert recording, which serves as a fittingly funky retrospective of McClinton's 30-year career, is as close to the definitive Delbert as can be imagined. And, oddly enough, his third and best live album was an inadvertent one--a Norwegian radio broadcast captured a festival set too hot to confine to the airwaves. Here, the Texas honky-tonk blues hero dynamically delivers the core of the live McClinton experience, including an energetic rendition of his 1980 breakout hit "Givin' It up for Your Love," a testifying take on Otis Redding's "I've Got Dreams to Remember," and a rambunctious (and extended) reading of his own "B Movie Boxcar Blues." But Live also fills in around the edges with surveys of McClinton's early influences: "Rebecca Rebecca," a slow-burning, stream-of-consciousness blues medley, features Kevin McKendree recycling some sparkling Otis Spann piano lines while the album closer, the vintage rockabilly romp "Fine and Healthy Thing," offers a great guitar getaway by Rob McNelley. --Michael Point

5.0 out of 5 stars Live the blues... June 27, 2004
Format:Audio CD
The only other Delbert McClinton album is own is "Room to Breathe." A good CD, yes; this one, though, really got me hooked. This is the blues, with country, rock, and pop thrown in...a mixture of music that melts into one flawless sound, glued together by Kevin McKenree's keyboard, Rob McNelley's guitar licks, and McClinton's gravelling voice and harmonica.
From the opener "Old Weakness," you know you're in for a treat. Other classic bluesy rockers include "I'm With You," "Giving It Up For Your Love," and "Smooth Talk," while "I've Got Dreams to Remember" and "Don't Want to Love You" are moving ballads.
Delbert McClinton is a man who can sing. And "Live" showcases that singing--and his backup band--like nothing else can. If you do not own this album, I sincerely believe you should. I don't know if it's a good retrospective or not, but I DO know that as a two-disk album, it's damn good. It's the blues, baby...the blues and everything else.

5.0 out of 5 stars Absolutely Fantastic Two Disc Set! November 12, 2003
Format:Audio CD
Haven't heard the Delbert sound? Buddy, you're missing out!
Right from the opening riff of "Old Weakness (Coming on Strong)" to the last encore, Delbert and his band are sizzling on this live two disc set recorded in Europe on his 2003-2004 world tour. I caught this lineup in Harrisburg, PA and am still hearing those tunes in my head a month later! The disc brings the live vibe right into your own CD player.
The band is smoking. Rob McNelley ([...]) is the guitar man (Check out his disc "On" - I bought it at the show, you can buy it at his website, but that's a whole other review!). His musical ability makes me want to get the old Les Paul out of the case and start playing again. Kevin McKendree makes that old Wurlitzer organ scream, and the horn section of Don Wise (tenor sax) and Terry Thomson (trumpet, keyboards) sound much fuller than two horns ought to sound. And don't forget Delbert's contribution here with his blues harmonica licks that I wish I could emulate. (Did you know he taught John Lennon to play the harp?)
Delbert's voice seems to be only getting better with age. He has that tone that can only be achieved through bad luck and hard work, and the combination here is simply magical. Why isn't he more popular than he is? Maybe it's that bad luck thing. Ha had a ten year stretch where every label he recorded under went bankrupt. Also, his music is hard to categorize. If you took Rock and Roll, Country, R&B, and Blues and mixed 'em all together you still wouldn't have it. I found this disc in the Country section of my local music store, where I would almost never look normally. So, you have to be looking to find him. Anyway, I'm sort of glad he's not more popular. He tends to play small venues, and tickets are generally available for a while.

5.0 out of 5 stars DELBERT'S STILL THE MAN!! October 27, 2003
Format:Audio CD
I have seen Delbert perform 'live and in living color' 4-5 times. Each time, I come away feeling like I've been to a blues/honkey-tonking/rocking 'revival'. I feel the same after listening to this newest release. I have all of Delbert's cds, but have always told folks that you have to see Delbert and his band live to really appreciate the true performers/entertainers/master musicians that they are. Yes, I have Delbert's last 'live' cd, "Live From Austin", and it was great. This release; however, is more polished sounding, especially, the vocals. Delbert choice of songs for this release offers a good variety of his arsenal of songs. He could easily do a 'live' 4 cd release with all of his songs. Thanks, Delbert, for great songs, a great band, & a great performance. Keep on keeping on!!

5.0 out of 5 stars HE'S THE BEST !! October 23, 2003
By A Customer
Format:Audio CD
Delbert McClinton has long been considered the definitive Texas Roadhouse Boogie/R&B artist extant by those in the know (critics and a sizeable cult following). With this 2-disc live CD offering (his first live since 1989) he definitely lives up to his legend and might even goose it a bit higher!! The sound quality is excellent and in-your-face and you're not likely to get any closer to Delbert live unless you see him in concert. The musicianship and arrangements are superb, and D McC's voice has still got that ol' smokey grit and soul in spades!! The man has never sounded better!! With a mix of old favorites and his newer stuff, this is THE Delbert McClinton package to have, bar none!! If this one don't make you tap your feet, check your pulse !!

5.0 out of 5 stars Should buy, MUST see ! January 20, 2004
Format:Audio CD
A couple of the reviewers made reference to the fact that this disc leaves something to be desired as far as sound quality on the recording. Okay, it isn't some cleaned up,over produced, studio concoction that 99.7% of todays albums are. That is exactly the point of the whole Delbert experience. It is the essence of his craft that makes him a "have to see at least once before you leave this world" type of showman. If you want a cold,antiseptic, feelingless Blues CD, buy Johnny Lang. If you want to hear someone that plays for the love of the game, buy this disc. Then go see him in person. As a matter of fact, come join me at the Col Ballroom in Davenport, Iowa on March 27th. Then, six months down the road when you have a serious Delbert "jones" working, pop this disc in and think about how close it sounds to being there!
