In which a group of graying eternal amateurs discuss their passions, interests and obsessions, among them: movies, art, politics, evolutionary biology, taxes, writing, computers, these kids these days, and lousy educations.

Music for the Day: Delbert McClinton

Michael Blowhard writes:

Dear Blowhards --

Whenever things in the world of American entertainment start to seem too damn unmanly, I know the time has come to post (and then re-post) some Delbert McClinton:

R&B, country, jazz -- Delbert's music is as big as Texas. And this song even comes with a message you don't hear often enough in today's pop culture: "Love ain't no good until you give it away." Ain't that the truth, or at least a big part of it?

I raved about the greatness of Delbert back here.

I agree with you about Delbert.

Have you ever noticed how little there is to say about the really great things in life? What can you say about great music? It's easier to beat the hell out of rotten crap.

Good music is an other worldly matter. Seldom is it about bitching.

I do pay attention to your music postings. I just seldom find that there is much to add to what you've already said.

Listening to Delbert's music is easy on the ears !!
