Our Review

Eric Clapton's successful '05 Cream reunion spurred the rock legend to revisit a less-heralded, if more personally inspiring muse from the musician's past, Oklahoma country-blues savant J. J. Cale. While Cale's ambling, laid-back ethos became a touchstone of Clapton's early solo career via hit covers of "Cocaine" and "After Midnight," this marks the first true collaboration between the laid back Okie blues man and the English guitar god he's so deeply influenced. The album's billing is more than alphabetical: 11 of the tracks are distinctive Cale originals while the acoustic folk of Clapton's "Three Little Girls" mines familiar pop territory, guest John Mayer contributes the jaded "Hard to Thrill" and the veteran duo turn in a languorously winning cover of "Sporting Life Blues." The signature Cale/Clapton sound makes "Danger" and the single "Ride the River" feel like familiar old friends, while the shuffling "Missing Person" and "When the War is Over" evoke even deeper American roots. Clapton's ever lyrical, restrained fretwork here is a stark contrast to his fiery Cream grandstanding, underscoring the truly collaborative musical partnership at the heart of one Clapton's warmest, most satisfying modern releases.

Customer Reviews

Excellent and long overdue (5 stars)
Clapton's long time respect for JJ Cale is finally being documented in this lastest release.

The musicianship as with most of

Escondido, CA. (4 stars)
Esondido is a suburb of San Diego, and like this album, Escondido lives just on the edges of the big city; somewhere on the periphery of mainstream. Just the reason you need to pick up this latest Clapton song catalog! JJ Cale is basically Eric's musical brother, so the two have woven together songs that ebb and flow from country-blues to straight rock, and they do so wonderfully. Remember "After Midnight" and " Cocaine?&qu

It's about time guys (4 stars)
A while back, I was reading a brief interview with Eric Clapton, and he was asked a question similar to, " If you could come back as another musician, who would it be?" His answer was "J.J. Cale", and he offered no further explanation. Now I know why! Cale often sings and plays his guitar in an understated fashion however you wish he would let it rip sometimes, but he never does, and he doesn't need to. Clapton adds his m

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....
