AllMusic Review by

Delbert McClinton always understood that it was more than just country music that went down at Texas roadhouses and honky tonks, and his before-his-time rootsy mix of blues, country, R&B, and soul made it hard for his various record labels to market him effectively, although his body of live and recorded work since he got his start as a harmonica player in the early '60s is a very impressive legacy. This set compiles 14 key tracks from his mid- to late-'70s period, including signature classics "Two More Bottles of Wine" and "Solid Gold Plated Fool," among others.
