A Different Side of Clapton
Simply put, this is one of my favorite albums. Ever.
I like this album
I like this album! My favorite is the title cut "Pilgrim". Very underrated piece of Eric's finest work.
I've been a Clapton fan for years and appreciate every phase of his career. While I've not been a big fan of his more recent work, Pilgrim is an exception. My Father's Eyes got the airplay and it's a fine recording, but the better tracks include River of Tears and Broken Hearted. River of Tears is classic blues balladry with lyrics and music that make me cry every time I hear them. While I wish Clapton would do more acoustic work like on his Unplugged release, which really highlight his Guitar God reputation, Pilgrim is his best record of the 90's aside from Unplugged.
This is Eric

This is a great cd , if you have the time which none of us have anymore.To cut it short my favorites are in this order She's Gone,Fall Like Rain,Broken Hearted ,My Father's Eyes,Pilgrim,One Chance,Born in Time, and of coarse a must have or just to hear Sick and Tired.
Brokenhearted is a song that sounds especially compelling when stripped down to just acoustic guitar and Eric's voice as he performed it in the round at the end of a VH1 Behind the Music special some years ago. The studio recording is still great but sounds more restrained compared to the VH1 outro. A sadly overlooked phenomenal song. Brokenhearted was the reason for my purchasing this album. My Father's Eyes is a good song also but the rest of the album was forgettable for me.
