Motel Shot is a 1971 album by Delaney & Bonnie and Friends. The album, their third for Atco/Atlantic (catalog no. SD 33-358) and fifth overall, is a mostly acoustic set. The album's title refers to the impromptu, sometimes late-night, jam sessions pursued by touring musicians when on the road.

In the liner notes, Delaney Bramlett dedicates the album to "My mom who sang alto." Bonnie Bramlett wrote "If this album can make one person feel half of what I felt on this session, then I am happy. It is to all of you with love."

The album reached #65 on the Billboard album chart, and includes Delaney and Bonnie's biggest chart single, "Never Ending Song of Love," which peaked at #13. (A French-language version of the song, "J'ai un amour qui ne veut pas mourir," was also a #1 hit in Québecmarker for Renée Martel.) Other standout tracks include "Long Road Ahead," "Sing My Way Home," and "Goin' Down The Road Feelin' Bad."

Guest musicians on the album include Leon Russell, Duane Allman, Dave Mason, John Hartford, Clarence White, Gram Parsons, and Joe Cocker.

Note that original pressings of the album credit "Come On In My Kitchen" not to Robert Johnson but to "Payne," a psuedonym under which some of Johnson's music was published at the time. (Original pressings of The Rolling Stones' 1969 album Let It Bleed credit Johnson's song "Love in Vain" in similar manner.)
