A&R Studios 1971

Nicht autorisierter Live-Mitschnitt aus den A&R Recording Studios in New York City am 22. Juli 1971 in annehmbarer Soundqualität, die die historische Aufnahme rechtfertigt. Gerade von einer erfolgreichen Tour mit Eric Claspton und George Harrison zurückgekehrt, spielten Delaney & Bonnie Bramblett dieses Studio-Konzert mit Duane und Gregg Allman sowie King Curtis als Begleitung. Zunächst akustisch, wird es in der zweiten Hälfte richtig laut und elektrisch. Eine CD, die sicher nur Hardcore-Fans von Clapton, den Allman Brothers oder auch Delaney & Bonnie empfohlen werden kann.

An outstanding 1971 studio concert broadcast, featuring Delaney & Bonnie and Friends, hot off the road with Eric Clapton and George Harrison, live at A&R Recording Studios in New York City - this time with friends Duane & Gregg Allman and King Curtis. The show begins acoustically (listen to D&B & Duane on Come on in My Kitchen ) then gets rowdy and electric for the second half. There s a lot of chatter too which is endlessly fascinating and while the electric set has some minor sonic issues, the historic significance of this recording is rich the 18 minute Only You Know And I Know, featuring smokin leads by King Curtis & Gregg Allman is a pure joy to behold. Speaking of historic significance, it should be remembered that both Clapton & Harrison escaped the restrictions of their respective bands to hit the road with the Bramletts, and Clapton raided D&B s Friends to form Derek & The Dominos (while the Stones snagged Bobby Keys and Jim Price who debuted on D&B s Accept No Substitute). Delaney Bramlett, who passed away in 2008 at 69, also produced and co-wrote one of Clapton s best solo albums, 1970 s Eric Clapton.
