Entertainment Reviews:

Rolling Stone - 6/7/01, p.116
3.5 stars out of 5 - "...A great a road map of Americana from one of its most traveled lights, encompassing roadhouse rockers...and old-school country laments..."
Entertainment Weekly - 3/9/01, p.83
"...Finds the king of ripsaw vocals exploring every greasy corner of his roadhouse sound, from the sly Texas 'tonk and swamp boogie to Memphis moaners and elegant uptown blues..." - Rating: B+
Q - 7/01, pp.112-3
4 stars out of 5 - "...Raucous saloon stomps....all come kicking and screaming from life: knees-up to breakdown. McClinton's a dazzling plain-spoken lyricist too....Common Man as earthy genius."
CMJ - 4/23/01, p.19
"...McClinton keeps the faith, and he's rarely sounded better."
No Depression - 3-4/01, p.112

This Texas bluesman's long career is full of critically acclaimed recordings if not breakthrough commercial successes. Considering his perennial cult status, Delbert McClinton is to be commended for avoiding the crossover-bid celebrity-duets approach taking by so many other baby-boomer blues artists.
On NOTHING PERSONAL, as with the rest of his output, McClinton is more concerned with recording gritty, hard-hitting blues than with becoming a star. From the sharp, angular guitar riffs to the greasy Hammond organ stabs, this is modern urban blues with an attitude. McClinton's delivery is consistently soulful and convincing, but his lyrical style is often light-hearted and ironic, and it's this combination of strong emotion and easy humor that separates him from the pack.
