The Danish band Delta Blues Band had been leading an inconsistent career for a decade, when in in the late 70's they teamed up with former Bob Dylan-band guitarist Billy Cross. In 1979 as Delta Blues Band featuring Billy Cross they recorded the album "No Overdubs" in one six hours recording scene. The album generated them a reputation as the only genuine blues outfit 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. Disagreements over the musical line cooled off the collaboration from 1983. 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".

A keystone of the Danish blues scene in the 1960’s, Delta Blues Band reshaped with extreme commercial success as Delta Cross Band in the 1980’s. In 2008 most of the original members decided to get together for a 40th anniversary reunion at the Copenhagen Blues Festival. Back in the ‘60s they called themselves The Delta Blues & Boogie Band, and today’s line-up is almost identical. Still fronting the band is Troels Jensen on vocal, guitar and piano. Brothers Thomas and Michael Puggaard-Müller play guitar and drums. Knut Henriksen is a newcomer on bass, replacing Søren Engel, and Jørgen Lang - who often joined Delta Blues Band on stage in the past - is now a full-fledged member of the group.
