By Victor HALL OF FAME TOP 50 REVIEWER
Format:Audio CD
This, for me, is one of Clapton's best solo albums. In his earlier solo career he seemed to be looking for a musical identity, while trying to leave the guitar god image behind. His first few albums saw him trying out a wide range of musical styles, and bringing his singing to the fore. Some great stuff resulted, but here it just seemed to click and a really great album resulted.

Clapton has always been at his best when working with other artists of the same stature, his work with Cream or Derek and the Dominos for example. And I think it is the impressive roster of guest artists on this album that pushes Clapton to do something special. With guest appearances from Bob Dylan, most of the Band, Ronnie Wood and Georgie Fame, there was a lot of talent floating around the recording studio.

The tone of the album is largely laid back and reflective, bluesy but with a pop element. The presence of Danko, Manuel and Dylan ensure that there is a strong feel of country blues to proceedings, especially on the songs they wrote.

Clapton finds the right blend of guitar and vocals, and both are pretty good on this album. Leaving the guitar pyrotechnics behind he still manages to weave rich musical tapestries with his more understated style, all the more impressive as it is so understated. The guests add to the album, but never take over. And, unusually for an album with so many big names contributing, it feels like a very unified album. It's an old friend, and one that goes on the record player quite regularly.

4.0 out of 5 stars An under-rated gem 25 Sep 2003
Format:Audio CD
On listening to this album, what's clear is that the quality of the song takes precedent over guitar solos. This makes a refreshing change from many of EC's other albums. Highlights include "Innocent Times", "Hello Old Friend", "Black Summer Rain", "Sign Language", and "Carnival". This album has become one of my favorites over the last 12 months and i thoroughly recommend it.

4.0 out of 5 stars The only Clapton I bother with after Derek. 19 Jan 2007
Format:Audio CD
The other reviewers have hit the nail on the heads really. It sounds like Clapton fronting a jam. If you've come to this album because of the collaborative nature, and an interest in particular in hearing Bob & God in the same tune and maybe liked the Bob & George bootlegs or the unreleased Derek album this is for you. If you want another "Blues" or "461", look elsewhere. If this is your first Clapton purchase, listen to a clip or two on itunes if poss.

4.0 out of 5 stars overlooked '70s gem 4 Aug 2011
Format:Audio CD
I first bought this album when it came out in 1976, but has remained unplayed for the past 25 years or so due to lack of a turntable. Recent interest in the Shangri La studios, where it was recorded, led me to re purchase on CD format. This is a must for any fan of The Band as well as Clapton fans. Recorded roughly the same time as the Last Waltz concert when the Band were about to disband, and bearing mind Clapton's longstanding appreciation of The Band, there was plenty of opportunity to produce some great songs. Watching Clapton's Further On Up The Road in the Last Waltz concert film demonstrates how together they all were as musicians. Stand out tracks are Sign Language, All Our Past Times and Black Summer Rain. The rest are all very good but the slightly lame Last Night (an CD extra) is wasted opportunity to expand the CD version, there must be other tapes from the sessions around....

5.0 out of 5 stars Excellent, underrated 6 Jan 2008
By Comical Engineer TOP 500 REVIEWER
Format:Audio CD
I consider this album very under-rated. If it is atypical of Clapton, then all the better for it. The highlight of the album for me is "sign language", the Dylan collaboration but the laid back "black summer rain" is a superb track, laid back Clapton at his best. "Hello old friend" was a successful single and again, it's a fine track.

Double trouble doesn't really pull it off for me. Some may like it and it's not a bad track, just done better by others.

Carnival is a bit of fun but not a bad track nonetheless. The other tracks are ok and generally the whole album is worth a listen.

It seems that the best tracks on this are the Clapton originals and the Clapton / Dylan collaboration. It's a shame that EC couldn't write some more original material like this.

Note that by modern CD standards this album is also fairly short.
