Delaney, Bonnie & Friends - Poor Elijah

On the strength of
Accept No Substitute, and at his friend George Harrison's suggestion, Eric Clapton took Delaney & Bonnie and Friends on the road in mid-1969 as the opening act for his band . Clapton became fast friends with Delaney, Bonnie and their band, preferring their music to Blind Faith. Clapton would often appear on stage with Delaney & Bonnie and Friends during this period, and continued to record and tour with them following Blind Faith's August 1969 breakup.
