iTunes Review

Me and Mr. Johnson became one of Eric Clapton’s best albums because it was never meant to be an album at all. These recordings emerged from a series of casual studio jams meant to fill the time while Clapton wrote new material. At this point, Robert Johnson’s repertoire wasn't so much a concept for Clapton as it was a constant. The seminal bluesman has been a predominant influence on Clapton since his earliest years, and Johnson's songs have reappeared in Clapton's work from every decade. With Me and Mr. Johnson, Clapton turned away from the terror inherent in much of Johnson’s work and instead emphasized the timelessness of his craft. These performances succeed because they aren’t bogged down by the darkness of Johnson’s legacy, instead showing that songs he wrote 75 years ago can be as fresh and vital as any modern offerings. The band’s impressively behind-the-beat groove owes as much to hard Chicago blues as it does to Johnson’s high-strung rhythms. But don’t be deceived by the simplicity. These are vital rhythms played by Clapton with titans of session work: bassist Nathan East, guitarist Doyle Bramhall II, and effortlessly guileful drummer Steve Gadd.

I love Clapton and I love Robert Johnson. But do you listen to either one to hear piano music??? This album is completely drenched in piano. When I hear Clapton playing Johnson, I want to hear GUITAR, not a bunch of piano crap. If I want to hear piano, I'll listen to Elton John. This album wouldve honestly been a 5/5 if the piano (and drums too, for that matter) would've been left out completely.


I never expected this one. I was surprised when he put this one out. But it's a very good album full of soulful and heavy blues tunes

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...
