DELBERT McCLINTON (353)

Under Suspicion: The ABC Sessions (RVCD-353) Double CD

Delbert McClinton’s recordings for ABC Records were the high water mark in a stellar career, an incendiary melding of southern Rhythm and Blues with Texas blue eyed country soul. Raven reissues on Double CD, the three landmark Delbert McClinton albums recorded in the mid-1970s – Victim of Life’s Circumstances (1975), Genuine Cowhide (1976) and Love Rustler (1977). These are the finest solo albums from this highly regarded singer, songwriter and multi-Grammy Award winning artist. Produced by Chip Young and featuring a stellar Nashville session crew – Reggie Young, Jerry Harrigan, Buddy Spicher, Bobby Emmons, Weldon Myrick, Ronald Eades among others – the albums sound fresh and appealing to this day. Victim of Life’s Circumstances was hard country laced with R&B, funk and soul and included perhaps his most famous song, ‘Two More Bottles of Wine’ (a country #1 for Emmylou Harris).

Genuine Cowhide was pure, rollicking R&B and Love Rustler was the third straight classic album in a row with a deep rootsiness added to a more contemporary funky sheen. McClinton is one of rock’s truly great singers and interpreters. For authentic southern country-soul-R&B, this is simply as good as it gets. “He sang Rhythm and Blues like the masters and could make the harmonica wail – he knew all the moves. Delbert was the consummate cool white honky-tonker” – Jan Reid, The Improbable Rise of Redneck Rock. “McClinton is a legend among Texas roots music aficionados, not only for his amazing longevity, but his ability to combine country, blues, soul, and rock & roll as if there were no distinctions …in the best time-honored Texas tradition.” All-Music Guide. With superb audio quality, color booklet and detailed liner notes.
