Outstanding look at a Texas roots music legend.
27 May 2007 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

This movie gives a funny and insightful look into the life of Texas roots music legend Delbert McClinton. It ranges from stories of his early years to the current yearly Sandy Beaches Cruise, which is the main backdrop of the movie. Along the way we meet Delbert's friends and fellow artists on the SBC, all very talented singers, musicians, and songwriters themselves. There is great music throughout this movie and the players I knew I just say yes, the movie got them right. The players that I didn't know I say I need to go out and buy a CD or watch them somewhere.

Music documentaries are normally about a concert. This is about a week long concert on a cruise ship and captures all the fun associated with that experience. It makes you understand that the reason the cruisers have so much fun is that the artists have so much fun.

Two themes, the very funny and interesting stories about Delbert and some of the other artists's life and times, and the great music. A very great story about a real good time.
