"Bonnie Bramlett: the original Delta lady; female Joe Cocker. Her voice is the centrepiece of the album. Her song, Groupie (Superstar) has been covered by Rita Coolidge (on Mad Dogs and Englishmen) and others. But if you've not heard Bonnie sing it, you've never heard it. If you like Lucinda Williams or Sheryl Crow, appreciate the unique twists that Janis, Stevie Nicks and Melissa Etheridge bring to music, you'll love this CD. Bluesy, folksy, rocking gospel. Delaney was the guy who encouraged Eric Clapton to sing. Their love song duets are full and heartfelt (at the time, anyway!) "Move 'Em Out" is one of my favourites: the grass ain't always greener. "Country Life" sweetly captures that back-to-the-land fantasy that turned into modern-day cocooning and seems to be Delaney's homage to his house full of women.It is my humble opinion that Groupie is about Eric Clapton - either that, or it inspired Clapton's guitarwork!"
