Delaney & Bonnie

Accept No Substitute
1978 Japanese Pressing With Obi And English Lyrics Insert. LP Appears New, Unplayed. “While Delaney & Bonnie Will Be Forever Associated With Eric Clapton And Layla & Other Assorted Love Songs, The Couple, Along With A Loose Association Of Friends, Recorded A Number Of Classics In Their Own Right. Released In 1969, Accept No Substitute Contained The Same Blend Of Soul And Rock & Roll That Would Show Up On Layla The Following Year. While The Production, As Matthew Greenwald Points Out In The Liner Notes, Has A "Pop Sheen," Delaney & Bonnie's Earthy Vocals, Along With The Band's Rhythm & Blues Assault, Nonetheless Dictate The Proceedings. The Horn Section And Expressive Guitar Create A Lovely Mix On "Get Ourselves Together" And "Someday," Giving The Listener A Taste Of What Gospel Might Sound Like If Performed By A Good '60s Rock Band. This Religious Connection Is Even More Predominate On "Soldiers Of The Cross," A Piece Of Lyrical Fundamentalism That Would Fit Quite Comfortably Into A Baptist Choir's Repertoire. This Isn't To Infer That Accept No Substitute Is Pious In Any Way; Only That Delaney & Bonnie And Their Friends Add A Spiritual Quality To The Music They Perform. One Also Shouldn't Miss The Imaginative "Ghetto," A Song That Cleverly Combines Soulful Piano With Strings. For Those Unfamiliar With Delaney & Bonnie's Other Work, Accept No Substitute Is A Good Place To Start.” Ronnie D. Lankford, Jr., AMG.
