On ONE OF THE FORTUNATE FEW, Delbert McClinton trots out a set of ten new compositions, and, working with some of the top session musicians in Nashville, lays down a groove as big and wide-open as his native Texas. Even though his lyrics touch on typical blues topics like salvation ("Sending Me Angels") and an unfaithful or departed lover (everything else), he sings with such hurt and conviction that they don't sound like cliches. Helping him to stay young is a veritable who's who of the younger generation of Country stars (Vince Gill, Patty Loveless and Bekka Bramlett) plus a few relative old-timers (Lyle Lovett, John Prine and a special appearance by B.B. King). Delbert McClinton made his first record in 1959, and a lot has changed since then, both in music and in the real world, but his voice and his groove still sound as fresh as they did way back when. Now approaching his fifth decade in the business, he continues to outperform artists half his age; and although he may not have invented the term "roadhouse blues," he's one of the ones who gave it meaning.
