Album Review

This 42-minute, eight-song live album, cut at Croydon late in 1969, is not only the peak of Delaney & Bonnie's output, but also the nexus in the recording and performing careers of Eric Clapton and George Harrison. On Tour features Clapton performing the same blend of country, blues, and gospel that would characterize his own early solo ventures in 1970. He rises to the occasion with dazzling displays of virtuosity throughout, highlighted by a dizzying solo on "I Don't Want to Discuss," a long, languid part on "Only You Know and I Know," and searing, soulful lead on the beautifully harmonized "Coming Home." Vocally, Delaney & Bonnie were never better than they come off on this live set, and the 11-piece band sounds tighter musically than a lot of quartets that were working at the time, whether they're playing extended blues or ripping through a medley of Little Richard songs. It's no accident that the band featured here would become Clapton's own studio outfit for his debut solo LP, or that the core of this group — Bobby Whitlock, Carl Radle, and Jim Gordon — would transform itself into Derek & the Dominoes as well; or that most of the full band here would also comprise the group that played with George Harrison on All Things Must Pass and at the Concert for Bangladesh, except that the playing here (not to mention the recording) is better. Half the musicians on this record achieved near-superstar status less than a year later, and although the reasons behind their fame didn't last, listening to their work decades later, it all seems justified.

Customer Reviews

DELANEY & BONNIE & FRIENDS ON TOUR

For any lovers of "old school" rock music, this album is a must. It features the great vocals of Delaney & Bonnie & must rank alongside the best demonstrations of "blue eyed soul" available. The band is headed by a youthful Eric Clapton who relishes the role of sideman, to this vocal duo. The album is worth the price, just to hear Eric's solo on "Coming Home". The band has players of the calibre of Dave Mason (Traffic), Jim Gordon & Carl Radle (Derek & the Dominos). A great live recording.
