    Husband-and-wife duo Delaney and Bonnie Bramlett were among the foremost proponents of blue-eyed soul in the 1960s and '70s. They're famous for luring Eric Clapton into their midst and influencing the direction of his solo work, but their own legacy stands up well beyond that. BEST OF DELANEY & BONNIE culls the best tracks from the pair's key releases, including their effervescent signature song, "Get Ourselves Together"; the New Orleans parade-band number "Free the People"; and the propulsive, Stax-indebted "Soul Shake." Delaney & Bonnie operated in a time when the boundaries of music were bursting open, and their sound is an organic mix of rock, blues, soul, gospel, and country that ultimately becomes its own unique paradigm. The Bramletts were at once musical relatives of the contemporaneous Southern rock of the Allman Brothers and their crowd, and a band apart.
