Editors’ Notes

As two Texas music veterans who'd made a few albums together in the early '70s, it was just a matter of time before Delbert McClinton and Glen Clark made their next move. There were conversations for 10 years. Now, however, the time has never been better for roots-rock, blues, and country-based musicians to give it a whirl; studios are sympathetic to live bands and their rough-hewn performances. Here, McClinton and Clark display voices that are worn in and out like the crevices of Mount Rushmore, and songs such as "Whoever Said It Was Easy," "Oughta Know," "More and More, Less and Less," and "If I Could Be Your Lover" sound as convincing as anything each man recorded in his so-called prime. This is a type of music often imitated by hopefuls, but McClinton and Clark are the real deal. They've got the experience to bring hard-won truths to everything they sing and play. "Too much temptation and not enough restraint" may sound like a regret, but it's the perfect way to explain how musicians transcend from good to great.

40 years later and worth the wait!

This long-awaited third album from rhythm & blues dynamic duo Delbert (McClinton) & Glen (Clark) will remind listeners that music can (and should be) clever, fun, raw, and from the soul, and will educate those who are new to the genre. You will be hard-presed to find a song on this album that fails to strike a chord in your soul, a tap of your foot, a smile on your face, or a boogie-woogie in your body. Welcome back, boys - it is great to hear you again!!

Just saw them in Hilton Head SC and the new music sounded timeless. The band was tight and Delbert and Glen sounded great together. Great record!

Too Twangy

I love Del McClinton and have tons of his music, but thought this album just a bit too country and not enough blues or rock for me personally.

The venerable Delbert McClinton is a legend among Texas roots music aficionados, not only for his amazing longevity, but for his ability to combine country, blues, soul, and rock & roll as if there were no distinctions between any of them in the best time-honored Texas tradition. A formidable harmonica player long before he recorded as a singer, McClinton's career began in the late '50s, yet it took him nearly two decades to evolve into a bona fide solo artist. A critics' darling and favorite of...
