You can call Delbert’s music “Texas roadhouse blues” if you want to, but you might as well give up trying to pin a label on this guy. Delbert finally hit the spotlight thanks to big-time fan John Belushi, who brought him to Saturday Night Live and millions of new fans. His single “Givin’ It Up For Your Love” hit the Top 10 and gave him his first real taste of commercial success. But the Delbert sound isn’t what you’d exactly call mainstream. His wailing harp and gutsy vocals will take you to the edge, and he’ll keep you on your feet. This high-octane Austin City Limits performance from December 18, 1982 turned the audience into a dance floor and kept the adrenaline flowing all night.
