D&B Together features an all-star line-up, including Dave Mason, Tina Turner, King Curtis, Bobby Keys, Rita Coolidge, Leon Russell, Billy Preston, Red Rhodes, Steve Cropper, and the entire cast of Derek & the Dominoes. Often, albums with this many guests become bogged down in ego trips, but the early ’70s was the perfect time for these sorts of jam sessions, which frequently worked quite well. Such is the case with D&B Together, an organic, earthy album that generally finds the perfect combination of musicians. Highlights are plenty, including Bonnie’s righteously rapturous vocals on Wade in the River of Jordan, the rolling percussion-fueled Well, Well, the rousing groove Big Change Comin’, and the soulful, Band-tinged I Know Something Good about You. Ultimately, though, it’s the Clapton-contributed Comin’ Home that steals the show with its flurry of churning guitars and percussion. Beautifully remastered and augmented with six tracks from the Bramletts’ post-collaborative solo outings, D&B Together has never sounded better.
