CD Reviews

Energetic R&B/Soul & Blues
jekyllnhyde | NJ | 08/27/2000
(5 out of 5 stars)

"This is an outstanding set of soulful R&B and blues, powered by a great five-piece horn section. Delbert's vocals and harmonica playing are in fine form, as is the entire band. Among the many highlights are "Maybe Someday Baby", the funky "Standing on Shaky Ground" and "B Movie Boxcar Blues", "Let Me Be Your Lover" (featuring some great guitar), "Back to Louisiana", "You Are My Sunshine" (with a cool organ solo), and "Givin' It Up For Your Love". One of the few changes of pace in a very uptempo set is a nice version of Otis Redding's ballad, "I've Got Dreams to Remember". Nobody does this style of music any better than Delbert."
One of the best live pop music recordings ever!
T. Barnes | Olean, New York | 08/24/1999
(5 out of 5 stars)

"Recorded live at Austin City Limits, with a minimally-rehearsed horn section, it comes off as a very high energy, very tight performance. I own 3 CD copies of it (1 autographed), and it definitely makes my desert island top 10 list. Check the tenor fills on "Standing on Shaky Ground" and the soulful rendering of Otis Redding's "Dreams to Remember." There isn't a loser cut on this CD. If you're a Delbert fan, you owe it to yourself to purchase this LIVE recording of the studio songs you've been grooving to. "The white James Brown." Delbert, don't stay away so long!"
McClinton Rocks Austin City Limits
Jullens@bellsouth.net | Baton Rouge, LA USA | 02/16/2002
(5 out of 5 stars)

"For lovers of good clean rock and roll with a bluesy flair, this album is one of the best buys around. Backed up by a terrific band, including a fabulous horn section, McClinton runs through his own classics like "Givin' It Up For Your Love",and "Back To Louisiana" as well as covers like Otis Redding's "I've Got Dreams To Remember". McClinton's raunchy voice and energetic style prove that he sets the standard for live perfomances. The album's only drawback is that at less than 40 minutes in length, the party is over before you are ready for the fun to end. Nonetheless, it remains one of my favorite albums, bar none. An absolute must have for any rock and roll fan."
