I owned this on vinyl and hadn't played it for 20 plus years - bought this re-issue and rediscovered a lost gem plus the Delaney Bamlett mix which is better than the original versionin my humble opinion.More funky and good use of the horn section.

No long guitar solos, just good songs & music from the period that led to Layla & Other Love Songs.Eric at his peak for me, free from the hype of Blind Faith and Cream.

The first Clapton solo album very much crystalised his entire career; when he was unsure where his career should go, he could be rather too easily led by a producer/currently hip friend. Unfortunately in later times, it led to Phil Collins' Behind the Sun and August and Simon Climie's Pilgrim and the particularly woeful Back Home. Fortunately, in this case, he had Delaney Bramlett.
A somewhat globally unknown musician, Delaney and his then wife Bonnie's group attracted the attention of some major headliners who dropped what they were doing to guest with them on tour. They supported Eric's supergroup at the time (Blind Faith) and he often much preferred stepping on stage with them than performing to the screaming masses along with Baker, Winwood and Grech. Both he and George Harrison, who was also keen to riff away with them on stage, yearned for a bit of anonymity away from their careers and just enjoy playing music again.
Just like the rootsy Canadian group The Band had convinced Clapton that Cream were a bit flamboyantly old hat, here were a down-home American ensemble that just seemed fun to be around. Clapton's first album reflects that edict, and although one suspects that most of the songs credited to himself and Bonnie Bramlett were mainly the work of the latter, it comes out as a very joyous little number.
To go my first point again, it reflects his enitre career, in that there are one or two absolute gems among the merely pleasant. The main gem is, of course Let It Rain. A tad lacking in the lyric department it is neverthless one of the greatest songs he ever recorded under his own name, with a Fender solo indicating his switch from the more boisterous Gibson.

I had this on vinyl may years ago and it was always a laid back favourite through my teens. I bought the cd when that first came out a long time back, and over the years it drifted into the depths of the collection, rarely being played but very much appreciated when it did resurface. So when it was re-released as a double cd I was really pleased but then cynical in the extreme and rather annoyed to find the bonus disc was Delaney's mix. I thought that was a total lack of imagination by the record company and held off buying it.
I gave in eventually, and am thoroughly amazed to say that I actually prefer disc two! Some of the tracks benefit enormously with a broader sound, and one or two are longer. None of the original 'warmth' of the sound has been lost and in my view it's gained a softer feel. I'm now one happy Clapton fan, and much as I wasn't expecting to say this, it's the second disc which I keep playing. After all these years of knowing the original album so well, I feel as if I've rediscovered it. I wasn't over impressed with the 461 Ocean Boulevard re-release extras, they seemed to be fairly standard live tracks which left me not exactly stunned. But this re-release has definitely got me pleased, and I'd recommend it to anyone.

This is a pretty good album and the deluxe version adds some interetsing extra tracks and a different mix. I think I prefer the Delaney BRamlett mix although it is not hugely different from the original mix apart from "After Midnight" where you can now hear horns that I think were mixed out on the original. This is in many ways a Delaney and Bonnie album with Clapton writing most of the sngs and handling most of the vocals. So don't expect stunning guitar solos or guitar wizardry. I guess this is really an album for existing fans. If you're new to Eric Clapton try Journeyman or one of his blues albums like From The Cradle.
