Editors’ Notes

It’s sometimes difficult to imagine that Eric Clapton was once a fantastic hard rocker. The Cream reunion of recent years established that ol’ Slowhand could crank up the volume when necessary, but this album of leisurely-paced covers (and a few originals) is where Clapton finds himself naturally suited as a performer. Clapton’s soulful vocals and deft guitarwork is naturally complemented by tunes from Fats Waller, Irving Berlin and Hoagy Carmichael and guests like Steve Winwood, Allen Toussaint, Wynton Marsalis and Derek Trucks make this an album of elite musicians doing what they do best. “Travelin’ Alone” is a perfect cruise through Clapton’s blues roots. “Judgement Day,” “How Deep Is the Ocean” and “Can’t Hold Out Much Longer,” with a tough harmonica growl, are the stuff that makes the legend. Clapton’s natural abilities make the tunes sound so easy. But rest assured, the deep competence he brings to “Diamonds Made from Rain” and “Autumn Leaves” is not so easily replicated. iTunes LP adds photos, liner notes from fellow guitarist and coproducer Doyle Bramhall, and more.

Customer Reviews

10/10

An alsolute 10/10. This album has it all. Clapton at his best. Along with Santana's "Guitar Heaven" these are the 2 best albums released this year.

Another winner from EC.

This is a very classy album which runs the full spectrum from blues to country & jazz. Eric's treatment of "Autumn Leaves" is a complete surprise. He has been learning standards since he was a youngster & this is part of what makes him such a talented & versatile musician. I wish more young guitar students would adopt the same approach & learn where modern music started.
Eric has enlisted sidemen of the calibre of Alan Toussaint, Derek Trucks, Wynton Marsalis & JJ Cale, to make this album one that will be sought after by lovers of good quality music. This album is one of the best releases of 2010, along with Santana's "Guitar Heaven", Robert Plant's "Band of Joy", Steve Miller's "Bingo" & the new Tom Petty album.

Clapton

Bluesy and cool, every track is a winner. Great rifts and voice to go with it. Best yet I reckon

Years Active: '60s, '70s, '80s, '90s, '00s, '10s

By the time Eric Clapton launched his solo career with the release of his self-titled debut album in mid-1970, he was long established as one of the world's major rock stars due to his group affiliations -- the Yardbirds, John Mayall's Bluesbreakers, Cream, and Blind Faith -- which had demonstrated his claim to being the best rock guitarist of his generation. That it took Clapton so long to go out on his own, however, was evidence of a degree of reticence unusual for one of his stature. And his debut...
