DELANEY & BONNIE & FRIENDS Motel Shot Expanded 2 LP

Delaney & Bonnie & Friends
Motel Shot Expanded 2 LP


Delaney & Bonnie were an American musical duo, singer song writers and a married couple known as Delaney & Bonnie Bramlett that fronted a rock & soul ensemble called Delaney & Bonnie & Friends in the late 60s and 1970s. The “Friends” part included a laundry list of legendary performers such as Duane Allman, Gregg Allman, George Harrison, Leon Russell, Bobby Whitlock, Dave Mason, Rita Coolidge, King Curtis, and of course, Eric Clapton. Delaney was from Mississippi and was an accomplished guitarist and singer. His earliest work included playing for the Shindig! TV series house band with Leon Russell. Bonnie was from Alton, Illinois, near St. Louis, and was an amazing singer performing with Albert King at 14 and Ike & Tina Turner at 19 years of age. She met and married Delaney when she moved to Los Angeles in 1967.

Delaney & Bonnie's 4th studio album hasn't seen a repress on vinyl since 1971 and includes a second LP of bonus acoustic outtakes that have never been issued on vinyl and were meant to create an impromptu late night jam session while on the road. The album includes Delaney & Bonnie’s biggest chart single, “Never Ending Song of Love,” and guest musicians on the album include Leon Russell, Joe Cocker, Duane Allman, Dave Mason, John Hartford, Clarence White, Gram Parsons and Bobby Whitlock. The band attempted to record the impromptu jam session in engineer Bruce Botnick’s living room but ended up doing it over in a recording studio. The performances are mostly acoustic and the song choices are mostly traditional gospel, blues and country standards.

Audio was sourced from the original analog master tapes and lacquers were cut at Sam Phillips Recording Service. Each 2LP includes rare artwork only released in France, never before seen photos and updated liner notes.
