The Original Delaney & Bonnie & Friends (1969)

Wikipedia - "The Original Delaney & Bonnie & Friends, also known by its subtitle Accept No Substitute, is the second studio album by American recording duo Delaney & Bonnie. ... It was recorded with many of the 'friends' that would form the core of their best-known 1969–70 touring band, including Leon Russell, Bobby Whitlock, Carl Radle and Rita Coolidge. ... In a contemporary review for The New York Times, Robert Christgau praised the duo's singing and lyrics of 'rich but implicit' sexuality and commonplace truths about love. He was also impressed in how the album appropriates soul music, but asserted that 'it is a white album, and for once that's good. No black singers would record anything so eccentric, so unabashedly baroque, in its celebration of black music.'"
