The Axis of Delaney and Bonnie

Phil Mershon, Perfect Sound Forever, January 2004

TAKE TWO PARTS post-Blonde on Blonde neo-folkie sensibility, stir in one part Aretha Franklin Gospel spirit, sprinkle in a few pinches of an attitude that endorses "love at first sight", and beat with highly amplified country blues, and you have the essence of what Delaney and Bonnie Bramlett wrought.
