Delaney Bramlett - Giving Birth To A Song

Delaney Bramlett - Giving Birth To A Song - 1975

by William Ruhlmann for Allmusic.com

Although his popularity was often eclipsed by the artists he mentored, Delaney Bramlett was an accomplished guitarist and singer/songwriter whose style influenced the likes of Eric Clapton, J.J. Cale, and Duane Allman. A native of Pontotoc, MS, he served time in the U.S. Navy before moving to Los Angeles in 1959. He soon became a member of the Shindogs, the resident band on the TV show Shindig. Such a job allowed Bramlett to rub shoulders with other notable musicians, and in 1967 he met Bonnie Lynn O'Farrell, a member of Ike & Tina Turner's backup group the Ikettes. The two were married within five days; they also formed a duo named Delaney & Bonnie. Read More HERE

1975's Jimmy Bowen produced "Giving Birth To A Song" marked Delaney Bramlett's third solo album (and his third label in as many years).  Credited as 'Delaney and Blue Diamond' the album found Bramlett returning to the confines of a full fledged band.  Musically the set wasn't a major departure from his standing soul/rock moves.

Mouito obrigado por este álbum de un gran músico, y también por los otros dos de tu blog. Buscando "Class Reunion" es como llegué hasta aquí hace un tiempo. Sin embargo, había olvidado incluirte en mi lista de blogs del mío:


Ahora ya está entre ellos.
