Delaney & Bonnie

When the Battle Is Over

Composed by Dr. John / Jessie Hill

Song Review by

One of the many standouts on the Accept No Substitutes album, this excellent Dr. John-written ballad was brought to Delaney & Bonnie by co-producer Leon Russell. Lyrically, the song proved to be somewhat prophetic, given the material and professional problems between Bonnie and Delaney Bramlett. The music is a mixture of funk, rock, and gospel, and moves with a wonderful grace and effortlessness.
