Keeping it Straight: Good Guy, Great Artist, But Lacking
I give this 3 stars purely due to the fact that Clapton has helped keep Robert Johnson out there in front of us (as he has done with Big Bill Broonzy, Albert King, T-Bone Walker, etc.). I just don't feel it with this cd. RJ's recordings were deep, troubling, personal, outright disturbing. I think Clapton is the man for this job, but I think he came up short. This cd has a "cover" feeling to it, and I know EC is so much more than that.
yes all four
This is an amazing album. Someone who really appreciates blues should definitly purchase this Ep. None other then eric clapton can put out an album nearly perfectly playing the original robert johnson's songs.I honestly think he did his best work on this album.
Get the original
Eric Clapton doesn't get it. Go to the source. Check out Robert Johnson, you'll save time and money.
Don't stop here

You need to buy the entire record. Don't bother with this EP. This is a great lesson in the Blues. The CD also comes with a must have DVD.
One Good Song - Sweet Home Chicago
I love Eric Clapton (he is the Guitar God) but this set is not worth buying. Sweet Home Chicago is awesome and I highly recommend purchasing. The other songs are just OK.
Sessions For Robert J
This is the Down Home Blues That can't be missed. The Music speaks for itself, Outstanding....
