Bio: 
As individuals, Delaney Bramlett and future wife Bonnie Lynn had achieved only limited success until, as Delaney & Bonnie, they began to cause a stir on LA’s hip music scene. They had already recorded for Stax, an album unreleased till after their Elektra debut Accept No Substitute. Under the banner Delaney & Bonnie & Friends, the husband and wife pair now had the hottest of bands - players soon to became the most sought after session men of the 70s - Bobby Keys (sax), Jim Price (horns), Carl Radle (bass) and Jim Keltner (drums). Delaney & Bonnie’s white soul sound was fresh, their enthusiasm inspiring new friends to join in, notably Eric Clapton, with whom they toured America. Delaney & Bonnie were the talk of L.A. Unfortunately, this was not matched by sales, and much to Delaney’s disappointment and the group parted company with Elektra. Their On Tour album, featuring Clapton, was released by Atlantic but, soon after, their exemplary sidemen jumped ship to join Joe Cocker’s Mad Dogs And Englishmen. Accept No Substitute remains a refreshing, vibrant white soul collection.
