Those expecting a rock fest from clapton, look away. His albums are mostly focusing on the songs not his guitar playing. This album is the same. It's an odd album at first covering very old standards (My good friend the milkman anyone) and a few new songs. At first thought this album was OK with a couple of good songs, but disappointing. On second listen it wasn't bad, a couple of duff songs. Third listen a decent album and I was starting to get it. Fourth listen and I thought it was excellent. He has created an atmosphere that is intimate and free, like you have just walked in on him and some friends playing in a room for fun somewhere. The album covers a variety of styles well from dixieland to jazz, blues, to laid back JJ Cale etc. It is his best album as a band leader since Layla, pulling out the best from the musicians around him with truly tremendous piano, harp, tuba, drums etc. His solos are tasteful, but not cliched. Because of the feel of the record and the different styles of songs it may well take a while to settle into this album, but I think its his best since unplugged/Journeyman.

This album is possibly Clapton's worst ever, but as I am a sad completionist who has to have every EC album I had to suffer and buy it.

Like a good Wine....Clapton gets better with age. This album is brillient from first track to final track. The entire production is 5 star and the song collection both varied and very entertaining. A must buy CD

Old school Clapton from the heart. The louder you play it, the deeper it gets. A joy to music and your soul.....

Warm and delightful, with a couple of little gems. I found that it grew on me with each listening.

Quite possibly the worst Clapton album ever!
If he gets any more laid back he'll fall off his guitar stool!
On an ego trip Eric? C'mon give the fans what they want--gutsy blues/rock guitar with sparkling riffs and if not book a place in the retirement home with the other non performers (Mark Knopler-Kill to get Crimson) and (Robert Plant-Band of Joy)

I often wonder what Jimi would be up to if he were still with us. He was on a par with Eric in the late 60's, they led the greatest creative talent forward into the 70's with fire and soul. Well, if his balls had shrivelled up and all the fire was extinguished and he went the same route as Eric he'd probably be teaming up with Cliff Richards for a Val Doonican tribute album or something just as obscure, but I doubt it somehow.

The only saving grace on this album is Doyle Bramhall II's `Diamonds made from rain', the rest make the recent JJ Cale duet Album and the `Me and Mr Johnson' Album sound lively (and I never thought that could possibly happen).

With Bramhall in on the production I was expecting some great stuff, as live they work so well together, and Bramhall's songs are all brilliant (just check out Sheryl Crows new album). But again, sadly it's Old Slowhand being very self indulgent. The folks with bus passes that have rated this high should take a listen to `Layla and other assorted love songs' again, or even `Journey man' to remind them what this guy is capable of.

Come on Eric get some aggression back in there.
