In the late 60s and early '70s, Delaney and Bonnie Bramlett played a vibrant, country-tinged blues-rock that also owed a heavy debt to gritty Memphis R&B (it is no coincidence that their first album was released on Stax Records). And while their singing and playing were consistently top-notch, their profile was not weakened by their association with Eric Clapton, who toured with them between his stint in Blind Faith and the formation of Derek and the Dominos. In fact, when considering Clapton's musical evolution, it seems clear that the rootsy, down-home vibe of Delaney & Bonnie was a direct influence on the direction of his solo career.
This excellent live set showcases Delaney & Bonnie's superb vocal performances (note Bonnie's gospel-drenched take on "That's What My Man Is For"), and Clapton's superior playing. Whether on driving, Stax-style soul ("Things Get Better") or good old rock & roll (on the fierce, extended Little Richard medley), the band--which consists of some of the finest musicians of the day, many of whom went on to play with Clapton and other luminaries throughout the '70s--tears it up. But while the set teems with advanced musicianship, the overall vibe is one of straightforward fun and good times.

As good as it gets!

Great outfit. Ahhh the memories.

Yes Clapton thought things were so great with D & B, he borrowed some of the group to form The Dominos.
Now If You really want to hear his finest CD - Checkout - Layla - Derek & The Dominos. I stumbled across it a few years back and still think he has never surpassed it. A Wonderful moment of Love Angst.:-D

Eric was great before he sobered up.
