It's been a lot of years, but sure - I can still hear it in my head, once I tell all the other voices to shut the * up! I LOVED it! One of the writers on SJQ's album "Mendocino" was Delbert McClinton, one of my favourite more-modern blues guys. His 'Road Scholar' (from his own album) still resonates with me:

    "I got a major in rhythm and a minor in soul - and a PhD in the blues... I'm a road scholar..."

    I also heard "Mendocino" recorded by the Texas Tornados, a Tejano band (still active) I listened to. Lots of accordion in that tradition - in fact, the famous San Antonio-born accordionist Flaco Jiménez was part of the band. He had been a big name already, at this time for about 15 years. I remember he played a gig in Toronto and some boorish rock radio announcer said of him "real nice sound, but too bad he isn't going anywhere with it..." WRONG!

    The Texas Tornados lineup included some people from SJQ - including the late Doug Sahm and also Augie Meyers. And don't forget the late, great Freddy Fender!

    PS. I swear this - I was thinking about the song when I came up with the "metaphysical mavens' phrase - because those "schools" (there are a couple) always seem to be somewhere picturesque, like Mendocino or Sonoma.

    "Yeah I'm a road scholar, how I love to hear the wheels whine
    Rolling down that old highway..."


    No - not Dr. Levicoff! Yes, Delbert McClinton sang it, but, as it turns out, it was written by fellow Texan, Lee Roy Parnell. Here they both are, performing "Road Scholar." https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=SH9_rzQbRbQ

    The standard to achieve in order to register as a counsellor with as a Certified Canadian Counsellor is the same as CACREP in the US: One has to have a degree from an accredited University and involves a practicum with a minimum number of hours (typically 400). Those who successfully complete a program from a respected school should be able to register with their state / provincial bodies and practice.

    While we're walking down memory lane: Delbert McClinton wrote what I believe is one of the most underrated classic rock tunes. Yeah, I'm speaking of Bruce Chanel's Hey Baby.

    Since Johann started talking about Delbert I had to check him out. I never heard of this musician before. Obviously he's been around for a million years so I couldn't listen to everything but I like "Better off with the blues." It feels biographical.

    Thanks. I feel vindicated.

    (1) BlueMason concurs that you need a proper degree (and more besides) to become a Certified Counsellor in Ontario - and
    (2) Everyone likes Delbert McClinton.

    I just read that Delbert was inducted into the Texas Heritage Songwriters Hall of Fame in March 2011, along with Lee Roy Parnell (writer of Road Scholar), Bruce Channel (mentioned by airmanfirst), Gary Nicholson, and Cindy Walker.

    Another blues-oriented guy I like to hear is Tinsley Ellis. He grew up in South Florida. Worth a listen.

    BTW - airmanfirst, I'm sorry to report that Delbert did NOT write Bruce Channel's "Hey Baby." Bruce himself and Margaret Cobb are the writers. Delbert, who is a darn fine harmonica player, played that instrument on Bruce's hit recording. I checked 4-5 sources and did not find a writing credit for Delbert McClinton on this song. No worries - he did write plenty of others!

    Pretty much. Delbert McClinton is 76. Tinsley Ellis is a bit younger; I think he's 60. Ellis has a degree in history from Emory U. I think McClinton's only degrees are his "Master's in Rhythm, a minor in Soul and a PhD. in the Blues."

    Damn, guess I'm busted back to E-2. 'As god is my witness I thought turkeys could fly' ... and McClinton wrote that song. A pal, in the day, had Hey Baby inscribed on the side of his cherry '53 Ford Sunliner. No flames, just Hey Baby.

    No biggie, airmanfirst. Anyway, Delbert was ON the record - doesn't really matter if he wrote the song or not.

    That takes me back! I came to Canada (from England) as a kid in the early 50s and young guys here were just starting to put song titles on their cars. Back then, young guys in England didn't have cars. No money. Most of their dads (including mine) couldn't afford cars either. That's why my folks came here. Three months later - ta da! A car! Cash on the barrelhead, too. Couple of years -- a house! Magic! Paradise!

    PS. I remember my last school year in England, 1951-52. 52 kids in the class (!). How many parents had cars? TWO! IIRC, maybe four or five had phones.
