I checked his discography, and he lists lots of songs more than once. "Leap of Faith" is a particularly well traveled song. Amazingly, of all his songs, I haven't heard a single one! What's your favorite?

I was wondering what his deal was - the list is unreal, of course - and didn't take the time to cross check the discography. So, thanks for the research. The discography says Delbert has recorded 23 of his tunes. And he placed 2 with John Mayall. Whoa.

None of his titles ring a bell for me.

I don't want to take away anything from him. It is a very impressive CV, and I'm sure he's gonna be good. Strikes me as the kind of resume that doesn't need that bit of puffery, though.
