Links to Peel

Peel played tracks from Delaney & Bonnie in the late 60's and early 70's, when the group were active. They were pioneers of the southern soul-rock style which he liked and recorded their first album for Elektra Records. Due to their connection with the likes of Eric Clapton and George Harrison, the duo became fashionable for a time in the early 1970s, But after their band split up, they seldom appeared in Peel's playlists.
