In the course of his 45-year recording career, Delbert McClinton’s album titles scan like a record of parties enjoyed, relationships consumed, tribulations endured and maybe a few sharp elbows thrown along the way: Victim of Life’s Circumstances, Keeper of the Flame, Never Been Rocked Enough, Cost of Living, Nothing Personal, etc. Anyone who has seen the Fort Worth native in concert would testify his has indeed been a life well lived, and he leaves precious little on the stage. Almost from the outset, McClinton forged early rock and roll, honky-tonk and a little New Orleans ooh-poo-pah-doo into a twangy, roguish brand of rhythm and blues that doesn’t skimp on either, and belongs only to him. Now 76, he’s in fine form on last year’s salty and soulful Prick of the Litter (Hot Shot Records), its only real concession to age a newfound emphasis on lounge-style swing that suits McClinton as well as a nicely rumpled dinner jacket.
