Morning Song – When The Battle Is Over
As has happened with so many songs, Aretha has the best known version of Jessie Hill* and Mac Rebennack’s** “When The Battle Is Over”. But Delaney & Bonnie and Friends cut it first, on their 1969 album, Accept No Substitute, with a laid-back, slinky, soulful groove.
*Better known these days as Trombone Shorty’s grandfather.
**AKA Dr. John
