"Despite its title, Prick of the Litter is the gentlest album (McClinton's) ever released. The set showcases a softer side of his instrument in beautifully arranged tunes that derive inspiration from the songs of Johnny Mercer and Nat King Cole, Percy Mayfield (whose 'The Hunt Is On' he covers here), Solomon Burke, and even Louis Armstrong. (The album) delivers tunes that range from airy ballads and grooving jump blues to classic American pop and swing." — AllMusic

Multi-Grammy Award-winning artist Delbert McClinton is at the top of his game with his 19th studio album, Prick Of The Litter (Hot Shot Records/Thirty Tigers). The new offering captures the balance of soulful energy and restraint that the legendary performer has been delivering in his live performances for decades all over the world. On Prick of the Litter, Delbert incorporates a variety of styles, and as always, just enough to keep him comfortably outside the traditional marketing categories.
