McClinton to Release Live Album

Delbert McClinton will release a live album on Oct. 21 on New West Records. The project was recorded live for Norwegian radio at the Bergen Blues Festival, although it was not originally slated to be a live album. “We’ve recorded several shows but this one came out the best,” McClinton says. “The folks in Bergen had great equipment, great engineers and, as it so happened, we had a really great night. It sounds live and I like that. The band is over-the-top great on it.” Songs from all phases of his career are represented on the two-CD, 19-track album. 08/21/03
