Clay McClintonLivin' Out Loud
Following in the footsteps of his father, Delbert, Clay McClinton blends country and blues into a savory whole that seems particularly Texan. Unfortunately, Livin' Out Loud, his third CD, doesn't distinguish him from Delbert – right down to the raspy vox. The flamenco flavor of "Gone To Mexico" stands apart from the honky-tonk and funk McClinton presents elsewhere, but even that tune, the lone cover, is a Delbert composition.
