Delaney & Bonnie with Eric Clapton in 1969

Eric Clapton toured with Delaney & Bonnie in 1969. The first release was the great studio-recorded single “Comin’ Home”. The B-side was “(Groupie) Superstar”, a wretched song that went on to be a hit for the Carpenters. This was followed by a live album Delaney & Bonnie and Friends On Tour with Eric Clapton which was release in 1970. An expanded four disc version was released in 2010.

George Harrison and Dave Mason were also in the band on the tour. Harrison is not on the records. Delaney & Bonnie were an enormous influence on Harrison, Clapton and Mason on albums such as Eric Clapton, Layla and All Things Must Pass.
