Giveaway Info

Delbert McClinton is a Texas born singer-songwriter who has released 25 studio albums and won three Grammys along the way. From his first stage performance as a professional in 1957 to his national tour in 2018, he's been dubbed a legend in roots music because of his ability to combine country, blues, soul, and rock & roll effortlessly. He is known for his distinct harmonica work and during a tour in the UK, met a young John Lennon and advised him on his harmonica technique, which resulted in the sound heard on the Beatles' "Love Me Do".

Tall, Dark, & Handsome is a steady indication of McClinton's diversity with his music. "Down in the Mouth" and "A Fool Like Me" are tracks that are made up of everything Texas and can be described as "McClinton-esque". "I Can't Get Up" is the obligatory "I'm getting too old to do this" song that is infused with natural swingin' blues and stands out on this album. McClinton recycles a Chuck Berry riff as he sings about whether or not he should sing a blues song or eat on "If I Hock My Guitar". "Lulu" is about an old lover who has left town, but comes back to try and rekindle the feelings and relationship that was once there despite the singer's wishes.
