A former member of Delaney & Bonnie's
backup band, as well as a member of Derek & the Dominoes
, Bobby Whitlock's first solo record treads much of the same ground. With contributions from Delaney Bramlett
turns in a solid effort filled with southern gospel influences ("A Day Without Jesus") and rootsy rockers. On the mournful ballad "Dreams of a Hobo" Whitlock
shows that all his good material was not spent on the Derek & the Dominoes
project. Though long out of print, this record is worth searching out for its encapsulation of early-'70s southern roots rock.
