Sad news I was going to post a couple of days ago. Delaney and his wife Bonnie performed at the Fairfield Halls in Croydon, in 1970 and produced one of the finest concerts that we ever had the pleasure to see. Their backing band included the guys who later formed the Dominoes, Eric Clapton and George Harrison amongst others in a star line up and was recorded and eventually issued and is one of the best live albums of that era IMO. A sad event but at least he went with Bonnie by his side and his recording legacy will stand the test of time
hadn't heard nor read but somehow knew when i saw your topic heading....There was some cool music going on there in those days....Delaney and Bonnie was exactly what Clapton identified as the real thing in contrast to the excesses of Cream and Supergroups and Clapton=God and he just wanted to get back to real music with real musicians. Very sorry to learn he died...Leon Russel, well past 70, continues to gig once a year in small places in California...he is soooo cool!
You're right.....he's 66...somehow i got the idea he was ancient and had been a studio guy in the fifties and already had had a long career behind the scenes before his moments in the spotlight aroung carney/Leon live album....nice to be wrong about something benign! Carney has about 6 great songs on it...the only dud is the one most covered...this masquerade. I think tightrope, out in the woods, me and baby jane and one other were all hits on denver radio the same year a thickl as a Brick....they all sound pretty good, still.
