I bought the album when I was 15 and wore the grooves right off the disc. Years later, I tried in vain to locate another copy, but this wonderful album had become all but extinct.
"To Bonnie from Delaney" is southern R&B with a kind of down home soul quality that only the Bramletts could do. I am surprised it took 30 years, and even more surprised to see it come out as a Japan import rather than an American digital remake. ( Now all I have to wait for is Claudia Lennear's "Phew" to come out on CD! )
Although the songs are just as I remembered ( minus the pops and scratches ), I was disappointed with the overall remastering quality which I feel is lacking and which is the only reason for the 4 star rating.
Most people might be more familiar with the then popular "Soul Shake", but my personal favorites are the honky tonk piano on "Miss Ann" and the medley with Bonnie singing "Mama, He Treats Your Daughter Mean"
They played with many familiar names such as Dave Mason, Tina Turner, Rita Coolidge, Leon Russell, as well as Eric Clapton. Even though they seem to have disappeared into obscurity, to this day no one sounds like Delaney and Bonnie.

ANY album that features Duane Allman makes it special. TO BONNIE FROM DELANEY is no exception. A very underrated album that should be noticed by not only just the Duane Allman fan, but for music lovers from all over. GET THAT ALBUM!

"Fred" has it right: any record featuring Duane Allman is reason enough to own. Other than Hendrix, no one brings guitar to an entirely different place. Stand up, open up your volume (use those old floor standing speakers you keep downstairs) and find out. But Delaney and Bonnie (especially Bonnie) rule the scene here in society with Eric and the damn best American crowd at Muscle Shoals of Aretha and Wilson, King, Boz, Otis, Percy and oh so many others, it represent the richest American R&B experience you and I will ever witness. Ever.

Though Delaney & Bonnie were best known for their association with Eric Clapton, and less so with George Harrison, they were true originals, combining southern soul, R&B, gospel and country into a potent brew. The albums that preceded this 1970 classic -- On Tour with Eric Clapton and Home -- established the soulful duo as bonafide stars and there's little use trying to compare the studio albums with the Clapton tour live set. What makes this album a standout is the great backing band (Kenny Gradney and Jim Gordon to name two) and the amazing voice of Bonnie Bramlett. It had always been there but she seemed to reach a peak here and Delaney more than holds his own. Bonnie's vocal on Love of My Man is sensational, soaked through and through with soul, and the other cuts simply burn. But the standout track for me is Soul Shake, which somehow impossibly manages to be a soul raver and a three minute slice of irresistible and infectious pop music, brought home by a blast of horns. The song is soaked with pure joy and that's no small feat. These three albums taken together represent a piece of musical history we'll likely never see again. And if D&B could shake Clapton out of his slumber and inspire him here and later with the Dominoes, then that itself is a testament to simply how great Delaney & Bonnie truly were.

Yea, Delaney Bramlett and Duane Allman sure were fast friends. And this album is where it really shows. This is the kind of Soulful-R&B-Southern-Boogie-Down-Groove-Gospel-Revival Exxxxxxtravaganza that could only have been brewed up by Delaney Bramlett, Duane "Sky Dog" Allman and the peerless session players known as The Muscle Shoal's Swamppers. Spin this puppy on your new Digitized Dolbyized Surround-Sound CD player and get into the groove. Hell it might almost sound as good as that old vinyl "Long-Player" record you slipped onto your snappy stereophonic turntable back in your dorm-room in 1970. I just can't seem to get tired of their music. Loved it back then and still love it today.

Also, Highly-Reccommended: Home by Delaney & Bonnie. Recently reissued vintage Stax Records.

P.S. I learned today, Jan 3, 2009 of the passing of Delaney Bramlett. What an incredible legacy of great Southern R&B he leaves behind. Having played with the likes of Eric Clapton, Leon Russell, George Harrison, Jim Gordon, Bobby Whitlock, Carl Raddle and so many more...He surely will be missed.
