Editorial Reviews

This, the first Raven release of '97, combines Delbert McLinton's first two solo albums 'Victim Of Life's Circumstances'/'Genuine Cowhide'. These two groundbreaking albums, never before available on cd, were hailed as classics almost immediately after their release. The unusual blend of counrt/r&b won McLinton widespread critical praise. This release also contains 4 bonus racks from McLinton's third solo album 'Love Rustler'. Packaged, in genuine cowhide motif, with informative liner notes and a selection of striking photographs.

4.0 out of 5 stars King of the Modern Honky-Tonk September 10, 2001
Format:Audio CD
Delbert McClinton has always stayed true to his roots - he specializes in a rock/Memphis blues/country hybrid that is at once high-energy, passionate, and crowd-pleasing without sacrificing his vision or integrity. This CD is actually a combination of two LP's from the mid-70's, along with a few bonus tracks. My own favorites are 'Victim Of Life's Circumstances' (as good a honky-tonk song as you'll ever hear), the oft-covered 'Two More Bottles of Wine', and 'Blue Monday.' This is a great album to play at a party to get people up dancing - which what you'll be doing all night long if you ever get to see Delbert live.

4.0 out of 5 stars really classic Delbert January 31, 2004
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
These are the albums my friend Jim turned me on to in the 70s. Delbert defines the juncture of Blues and country in a way that's reminiscent of the early Sun Records, without being Rockabilly or retro. It's Southern, white soul, I guess. It's wonderful whatever you call it. If anything, Delbert's recordings get better and better, but these early recordings are a great indication of where he came from, and are personal favorites of mine. Note the cover of "Victim of Life's Circumstances": that poor condom's been in the wallet so long it's worn a ring in the leather. Those are some hard times, bub, but Delbert transforms them into a rollicking good time.

5.0 out of 5 stars delbert is sublime January 1, 2013
By c smith
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
this album has LOTS of GREAT tunes!!! even though i have all of these cuts on vinyl or tape, i bought this because the cd format is easy to use. of course, delbert should be in the R&R Hall of Fame, but if he were as famous as he should be--he wouldn't be delbert! this album is an absolute MUST for everyone who loves great bluesy/rock. and, for those of you who have loved del's music for the past 45-50 years... shame on you if you don't already have these tunes in your collection.
