This was fun to play in the '80s...
Anyone mention the B52s?
Here is another Human League song.
Sugarland, Jake Owens, & Little Big Town covered it.
Gold by John Stewart with Stevie Nicks on vocals and Lindsey Buckingham on guitar.
OK, everybody forgets about these guys, they only had one song that approached being a huge hit, but they were fairly popular in their time, got plenty of FM radio airplay, and figured heavily in the course of Eric Clapton's career(the only time I saw him live was when he was merely the 'guitar player' in their band). The musicians that gravitated around them formed the core of Joe Cocker's Mad Dogs, The Dominoes, plus the Rolling Stone's horn section, and did work on "All Things Must Pass". I'll throw a couple of my favorites at you...
Some guy named Duane played slide guitar on that one; the next one, a Dr. John tune, is just dripping with funk, and the vocals are a back-and-forth banter like Johnny and June's "Jackson"...
OK, one more...a few years ago, I saw Tedeschi/Trucks, they did this, I thought 'This is too perfect' in a connect the dots way. But here, what a band, right?
Bonnie had done some work with Ike and Tina Turner(to be honest, Bonnie's vibrato was a little too wide for my tastes, but that's my problem); you might want to check this out...
That's all I got right now; I dunno, Otis and Carla's "Tramp", Mickey and Sylvia's "Love Is Strange", Marvin and Tammi's "It Takes Two"? At least I didn't mention Peaches and Herb. Oh, I did.
This could work.
Which one was their huge hit? When I was in 5th or 6th grade a bunch of the girls in my class brought in a Delaney & Bonnie album and would gaze dreamily at Delaney's denim-clad beard-surrounded eyes while listening to "Only You Know And I Know"
A few years later I was surprised to find that same tune on the copy of The History Of Eric Clapton LP I'd picked up.
This was Delaney & Bonnie's biggest hit.
Exactly; while, as I stated, it approached being a big hit, not quite a smash, “Never Ending Love”, in 1971, got plenty of airplay, even on a few country stations(which was surprising as they were more soul/R&B influenced, and C&W radio was still resisting anything remotely ‘hippie’). With that sing-along chorus, it was the best that their career got. Changing tastes in music, and the loss of their fabled band over time led to them fading away. D&B eventually divorced; their daughter, Becca, sang in a reconstituted version of Fleetwood Mac(and other Mick Fleetwood projects) for a while.
Just gonna bump this with an update....
The female lead in this band is a lot of fun. She's open to whatever. We found a drummer! Things are going great and we have a lot of fun. (We're all sarcastic trash talkers.)
Thanks so far for all contributions!
I have that double LP...sitting about 3ft away.
Still remember the day I bought it is a Philly record store with my cousin.
The cover photo is Clapton at the Concert For Bangladesh.
Right! Playing that gorgeous Gibson S-400CES...a huge archtop f-hole jazz guitar that seemed like the oddest possible choice for a guitarist like Clapton.
