1969’s Home is the debut LP on Stax Records from Delaney & Bonnie—a blue-eyed soul duo comprised of married singer-songwriters Delaney and Bonnie Bramlett. Both artists came from impressive backgrounds (Delaney played with acclaimed songwriter Leon Russell in the house band for the TV show, Shindig!, while Bonnie performed with legendary blues guitarist Albert King when she was just a teenager). Their debut album, Home, featured an impressive lineup of talent, including Russell, as well as Booker T. & The M.G.’s and members of the Memphis Horns. Produced by Donald “Duck” Dunn and Don Nix, Home offers a selection of original material from the couple, plus songs by writing duo Isaac Hayes and David Porter, and Steve Cropper. This reissue includes tracks like “Hard to Say Goodbye,” “Just Plain Beautiful,” and “It’s Been a Long Time Coming,” as well as a bluesy rendition of “Piece of My Heart”—as made famous by Janis Joplin and Big Brother and the Holding Company.
