Thought I would Love Anything Delbert Releases

"I am a dyed in the wool Delbert McClinton fan. Love the way he sings honky tonk and love the way he sings the blues. But this album was a real disappointment. Mainly because Delbert sounds like everyone except Delbert. Couldn't find even one Delbert song. While the first song (Don't Let Go) didn't sound like Delbert, it was still fun to listen to. Unfortunately that was the only one I could enjoy. The rest were more like famous songs sung by unknowns.I'll still add Delbert albums to my wish list. Maybe this is the only real disappointment that he's ever released!"

"Delbert remains the Keeper of the Flame, the best roadhouse rocker in the biz, but this is a very disappointing release. Everybody who worked in Texas fell into the hands of the infamous Huey Meaux at one time or another, and Delbert was no exception. These cuts were made in the 60s when he was yet to form his own personal fusion of country and R & B, and suffer, like his first efforts for Major Bill Smith, from a lack of direction - and a typically mean spirited set of production values from Meaux. A mixture of garage rock and Beatles-influenced rock 'n' roll - but none of the fire of the later Delbert. One to miss."
