I can't find any pics, but check out this (circa 1969-70?) YT of Delaney, Bonnie & Friends -- "Comin' Home"...
What a band -- Clapton, George Harrison, Carl Radle, Jim Gordon, etc. all "happy" together?! What a crazy time!!

Delaney, B. & Friends were a GREAT group. Saw them in Phoenix only once, around '69. I think. Played with Seals & Crofts. If I remember correctly, Seals & Crofts were booed off the stage, 'cause people wanted to see Delaney, B. & Friends. Not fair, but it was a wild crowd. Same thing happened at a concert up there with The Who, Jimi Hendrix and an opening act I can't remember. That opening act didn't have a chance.
TikiG. Great story about the Spiders 45. I kinda remember it, but I haven't seen a copy of it for 40 years or so. They were a Great band. They opened for Steppenwolf at the local roller rink once.....that was an unbelievable concert. Everyone was pretty pie-eyed, of course. They had a giant wooden vertical roulette wheel type of thing with baby (dolls) tied on the the rim. During one song Vince (alice) started turning the wheel with a large crank...it spun faster & faster until the dolls started shooting out into the audience. Amazing the things you can remember.
