Delaney

If the rock musician is today's troubadour, then the motel is his watering place, his caravansary, his wayside inn.

Standardized, depersonalized, anonymous, the motel room is where the rock performers sleep, relax, plan, compose, eat; and where they often make their best music.

Amplifiers stay in the band van: they are too much trouble to unload, and the music must not be so loud as to draw the attention of the other guests or the management.

Acoustic guitars, tambourines, a suitcase or soda bottle carton-sometimes even a piano in the lounge-perhaps an upright bass: this is the instrumentation of the "motel shot."

Sometimes it happens in somebody's Basement gameroom, sometimes in a backstage dressing room, sometimes on a tour bus, but the "motel shot," wherever it is played is always characterized by the non-electric, no-strain, no-pain, soft easy sound that Delaney & Bonnie-and their talented friends-birng you in this record.

For too specific an audience: Stomping Gospel rave ups
Review written by John Fitzgerald, March 27th, 2005

Dave Mason is one of sixteen people listed in the liner notes for this album as an "included musician & vocalist" so with such a vague entry, it's hard to know how much/where/what Mason was contributing to this album. As for the songs themselves, this will largely appeal to those that enjoy piano stomping gospel shouters. Though good for that league, it would be hard to recommend this album for one with other tastes. The opening "Where the soul never dies" includes the tambourine pounding rave up style which then goes directly in to "Will the circle be unbroken" which is more of the same but it's slower and has good Bonnie lead vocals. The centuries old "Rock of ages" here is a well meaning but sloppy cover with it's clopping rhythms and let down of promise but "Long road ahead" is a useful acoustic guitar led stomp. "Faded love" is a Delaney vocals and piano only (with light acoustic guitar patches later) track that probably fares better here than it would've had it been placed elsewhere on the album (as this and the previous track sound like such a breath of fresh air after the first few). We return to the gospel stomping, predictably, on "Talkin' about Jesus" and though it grows as it goes along, it does seem emptier in arrangement that the earlier tracks. "Come on in my kitchen" is strange to listen to here given the gospel treatment (after being used to blues arrangements the track is used to being heard under), it features piano, sliding acoustic guitar and tapping rhythms. However, "Don't deceive me (Please dont go)" IS blues here which compared to the other tracks has a stroll feel with good Bonnie leads and also again, featuring acoustic guitar, piano and tambourine. "Never ending song of love" has a slight hoe-down feel with it's fuller instrumentation and "Sing my way home" continues the full sound approach, light electrics this time, with it's harder strumming guitars it sounds nice even if the tune itself never really goes anywhere but "Going down the road feeling bad" returns us again to the gospel stomp which makes you feel like you've just started the record over again. Fortunately though, "Lonesome and a long way from home" makes for a good closer as it has a better hook than many other tracks here, it's another hard acoustic strummer this time with harmonica and fiddles which work well. In the end though, if you're not big on the gospel rave ups then whatever other paths this album touches on, isn't really enough to make you crave this album, otherwise, you'll love it.
