Released in 1971, '''Motel Shot''' is the fifth album recorded by soul singers Delaney and Bonnie Bramlett. Designed to recreate for listeners an informal jam session of the sort touring musicians would engage in to unwind, similarly to the oft-bootlegged ''Million Dollar Quartet'' sessions. ''Motel Shot'' features high-profile guests - Delaney & Bonnie and Friends had a LOT of friends in the pop community - playing acoustic takes, mostly of old standards. Seven of the twelve tracks are [[CoverVersion covers]] and four of those are religious hymns. The album's concept prefigured MTV Unplugged by nearly two decades, serving as the TropeMaker for the UnpluggedVersion.

* SillyLoveSongs: "Neverending Song Of Love"


* EverythingIsAnInstrument: To contribute to the "motel room jam" feel, the backing band used empty suitcases for percussion.
