Delaney & Bonnie Box Set

More than 3 hours of previously unreleased material recorded during a 1969 and '70 tour featuring a number of great players is slated for a July release by Rhino Records.  The name of the box set features the most prominent member of the the band, but the tour recordings of Delaney & Bonnie and Friends on Tour With Eric Clapton also included Dave Mason of Traffic, Rita Coolidge, bassist Carl Radle, drummer Jim Gordon and keyboard great Bobby Whitlock, who would all work with EC in Derek & The Dominos, and future brass legends Bobby Keys and Jim Price, who contributed to countless projects, among them ones with Clapton, Joe Cocker and George Harrison, who joined Delaney & Bonnie Bramlett's Friends on the last night of the tour and appeared in the credits as Mysterioso.  The collection, which comes nicely boxed in a mini tour equipment case, includes the full concert the group did at Royal Albert Hall in 1969 and both shows with Harrison that closed the tour at Fairfield Halls in Croydon.  Set lists did not differ a lot from night to night of the tour so there is plenty of duplication, and intros and crowd announcements factor into the 50+ track count - but medleys are counted as single tracks.  The end result is a collection that captures a lot of great moments in a tour most people did not grasp the historic proportions of until well after it was over.
