Art Decade Report:

Click here to go to AD to check Delaney & Bonnie’s “Groupie (Superstar)”….this is the original version of the Leon Russell tune.  It was a big hit for the Carpenters in the 70’s.  Not sure why the Carpenters chose to cut the “Groupie” out of the title…Haaaaaaaa! 

Killer version…check the D&B cut.  Not sure if Eric Clapton actually played on this cut?  Anyone out there know for sure?  Nice post by AD.

    Just a quick hello and to let you know “Superstar” was co-written by Delaney, Leon and Bonnie.
