Danish blues/rock band, 1979-1990. The danish band Delta Blues Band
had been leading an inconsistant career for a decade, when in the late 70's they teamed up with former Bob Dylan-band guitarist Billy Cross (2)
. In 1979 as Delta Blues Band featuring Billy Cross they recorded the album "No Overdubs" in one six hours recording session. The album generated the band a reputation as the only genuine blues act in Denmark and same year they formed Delta-Cross Band. From 1979 to 1982 the band released three albums and was a very popular local concert name. In 1980 they backed C.V. Jørgensen
on his Tidens Tern
album, one of ten albums on the national cultural heritage albums list. Cross left the band in 1983 and Troels Jensen, Søren Engel and Preben Feddersen re-formed Delta Blues Band and released an album. Billy Cross went solo, releasing albums and producing for other artists. For a short while in 1990 they re-banded and released a single album, "Tough Times".
