The husband-and-wife duo of Delaney & Bonnie Bramlett created some of the most distinctive and unique music of the early '70s, but their alchemical sound -- equal parts blue-eyed soul, blues, country, and gospel -- was often marginalized by the attention instead paid to the contributions of their famous "friends," including rock icons like Eric Clapton, Duane Allman and George Harrison. Delaney Bramlett was born July 1, 1939 in Pontotoc County, Mississippi, later befriending fellow aspiring musicians Leon Russell and J.J. Cale. It appears as though the Bramletts were pulling in a lot of markers here in the hopes of getting that elusive hit. On D & B Together, listeners find studio versions of "Only You Know and I Know" and "Superstar," both of which were concert highlights over two years before. Surprisingly, the best cut here is a studio take of "Comin' Home," written with Eric Clapton and featured on the On Tour album. While not as loose as the live cut, "Comin' Home" is great music nonetheless. The problem was, nobody seemed to care much anymore. AMG.
