Without a doubt, one of the most soulful, powerful, exhilarating, epic demonstrations of blues music. an absolute must have for even the most casual of blues fans. check out the cover of double trouble
Why can't i buy the album on itunes?
By want the BLUES
Doesn't seem to b an option - only singles are available.
This is real eric clapton. it is not the crap you find on Pilgrim, Journeyman, and August, but Eric Clapton's world-famous blues rock. Any true fan of his should own this.
There is no more ... just Crossroads. I was 14 years old the first time it played on WMMR, Philly. May as well have been heroin.
Every single time I play this album two things happen. One, I realize I've forgotten how good this album is, and two, somebody asks "What is this album and where do I buy it?" Just put this album on, drink some beers, b.s. with friends, play some cards. It's perfect music for hanging out on the deck on a warm summer day.
Get the full album
I got this 2 disc compilation when it came out, and when i was really getting into the blues. The actual album has one cd of studio work, and one cd of live blues. The live cd is simply amazing. Instantly becoming my favorite. The first cd is good, but the live cd is essential to any fan of Clapton and/or blues guitar.
Interesting but Somehow Disappointing Compilation
Basically, the "Eric Clapton slide guitar album." Fans of his single-string workouts are sorely served by the selections here. And to add disconcertment to disappointment, the compilers unexplicably assault us with yet another(!) languid, syrupy version of-- arrggghh-- "Wonderful Tonight". On a compilation that otherwise showcases EC's blues side? Go figure.
Whether you love the blues or Eric Clapton, this is an essential work. There is some spectacular muic here!
Eric Clapton in this album showing that he is to be regonized in the blues along with Muddy Waters, Buddy Guy, and Robert Johnson and Ect. With his song Have you ever loved a women proving to be one of the great guitarists of all time. I think everyone needs to sit back and listne to what this guy is feeling.
