    Presented by at The Wilbur Theatre

    Delbert McClinton

     Born in Lubbock , TX, McClinton first appeared on a hit record in 1962, when his distinctive harmonica playing graced Bruce Channel’s No. 1 single “Hey Baby”. Beginning in 1975, McClinton recorded a series of LPs for ABC, Capricorn, & Capitol that melded blues, R&B, and country into a soulful blend. At Capitol in 1980, McClinton scored the top 10 hit “Giving It Up For Your Love,” which pushed the album The Jealous Kind into the top 40. After spending the ‘80s and ‘90s cutting consistently powerful albums, McClinton arrived at New West Records in 2001 with the wildly received Nothing Personal, which won him his first solo Grammy, for best contemporary blues album. Room to Breathe followed in 2002. “I’m an acquired taste in that my kind of music’s not for little kids,” the Texan singer-songwriter says. “It’s adult rock ‘n’ roll…There are a lot of beautiful colors and sad stories and much-deserved joy in that.” All those colors and stories are richly present in McClinton’s album “Acquired Taste”. The collection is the musician’s fourth studio set for the label, and it succeeds his Grammy Award-winning Cost of Living (2005), which was named best contemporary blues recording by the Recording Academy.
