Delaney and Bonnie are generally best remembered for their albums On Tour with Eric Clapton and Motel Shot. On Tour was their best-selling album by far, and is the only official document of their live work. Delaney and Bonnie were considered by many to be at their best on stage. In his autobiography, Atlantic Records executive Jerry Wexler says that the album he produced for the band, To Bonnie from Delaney, “didn’t quite catch the fire of their live performances. Clapton makes an even stronger statement in his autobiography: “For me, going on [with Blind Faith] after Delaney and Bonnie was really, really tough, because I thought they were miles better than us. Motel Shot, although technically a studio album, was largely recorded “live in the studio” with acoustic instruments - a rarity for rock bands at the time, foreshadowing the “Unplugged” phenomenon by nearly twenty years. It is an insult to the entire rock and roll community that Delaney and Bonnie have not been inducted into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame.
