So, 35 years on, Clapton is no longer God: he now plays the DevilThey are all delivered with sincerity, love and respect. The band are as tight as a bottle-stop, the recording is as clear as a bell and Clapton’s singing and playing sound just fine. […]
The album isn’t bad—in fact, the playing is solid, in terms of technique. Worse than being bad, the album’s just kind of vacant. It’s hard to imagine who this music’s made for. Blues fans would be better off with the original Johnson or even Clapton’s other bluesy albums. […]
He has used mainly classical/soft rock kinda style bu anyway what ever it is I like it! This probably isn’t his best album so here I go out to by more! […]
