Complete Delaney & Bonnie with Clapton exhumed

D&B On Tour We’re partial to Rhino Handmade, Rhino Entertainment’s limited-edition online outlet, and (full disclosure) not just because this writer penned notes for the imprint’s Wilson Pickett set “Funky Midnight Mover.” Handmade is the corporate equivalent of crate-digging, and they unearth some choice vault material aimed at the collector that might otherwise never see the light of day in these boxed set-unfriendly times.

Handmade announced today that it is stepping up with its long-in-gestation boxed set devoted to Delaney & Bonnie’s 1969 shows with Eric Clapton.

Band members Carl Radle, Bobby Whitlock and Jim Gordon later joined Clapton in Derek & the Dominos.
