Reissued for the First Time Since Original 1969 Release; 180g Vinyl LP All-Analog Mastered by Jeff Powell at Take Out Vinyl and Pressed at Memphis Record Pressing

In the fall of 2019 Craft Recordings will reissue five albums from the Stax vault on 180-gram vinyl including The Bar-Kays’ Gotta Groove, Booker T. & The M.G.’s Melting Pot, Delaney & Bonnie’s Home, David Porter’s Victim of the Joke?…An Opera, and Johnnie Taylor’s Who’s Making Love. All LPs have been cut from their original analog tapes by Jeff Powell at Take Out Vinyl and manufactured at Memphis Record Pressing. These reissues are part of a yearlong celebration of Stax, and of the 50th anniversary of the legendary label’s “Soul Explosion” – an era of rebuilding following its separation from Atlantic Records. During this period, the newly independent label not only signed fresh, emerging talent but also released an impressive collection of 27 albums and 30 singles in just a handful of months.

1969’s Home is the debut LP 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). Home features an impressive lineup of talent, including Russell, as well as Booker T. & The M.G.’s and members of the Memphis Horns. Produced byDonald “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.

Following the release of Home, Delaney & Bonnie caught the ears of George Harrison and Eric Clapton, who they would soon collaborate with, along with a rotating cast of musicians including Gregg and Duane Allman, Rita Coolidge, and Dave Mason. This reissue marks the album’s first availability on vinyl since its original release, and 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.
