The pair recorded two terrific records in the early '70s: Delbert and Glen in and Subject to Change in These set a blueprint for the paths both artists would follow separately. Blind, Crippled and Crazy feels like a logical third step for this pair. After four decades, that trademark blend of phrasing and harmonizing is still seamless. Co-produced with McClinton 's songwriting partner, guitarist Gary Nicholsonthe three each wrote or co-wrote about half the tracks here in various combinations, covering most of the record.
The sound is immediate, gritty, and warm -- unlike most records cut in Nashville these days. Standout tracks include the good-time, self-deprecating, honky tonk blues of "Been Around a Long Time" with a great fiddle break by James Pennebaker. McClinton 's solo vehicle, "More and More, Less and Less," is a midtempo rocker almost smoldering with wisdom and world-weariness.
For any fan wary about the particular brand of rugged, raucous, soulful magic these duo created being recaptured, have no fear. Blind, Crippled and Crazy is solid, lyrically, vocally, and musically, top to bottom.
