On Tour with Eric Clapton

Editorial Reviews

All Music Guide - Bruce Eder
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 ...

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.

    Delaney & Bonnie with 70's Best Guitar Rock Sound

    This is 5 stars (out of 5 !). Music does not get better than this. Delaney and Bonnie with Dave Mason and Eric Clapton. I even read that Eric Clapton solo on the song "I Don't Want To Discuss It¿ was rated the best ever solo guitar playing (its spontaneous and live music). I cannot remember exactly where I read this, but I did, and I believe it when you listen to the song today. Everybody was at their best. You don¿t even care if the guitar is Dave Mason or Delaney Bramlett or Eric, its so good why care. From "Poor Eljiah" to the song "Little Richard Medley" this album has great 70's guitar rock with Delaney and Bonnie combination of merging the following sounds; Soul, Folk music, and Rock-And-Roll. Their is a bit of fun here also, to listen to the announcer use some of the slang back then (a swinging place !).
