Fantastic blues playing,
By A Customer
This review is from: From The Cradle (Audio CD)
I'm inclined to agree with the other reviewer who stated that the solo on 'Five long years' is the best guitar solo ever; it simply is amazing. The only problem is, i get to track 5 and then just keep playing it over and over again... I've never been the greatest blues fan but i really enjoyed this album; the guitar work is excellent and the band plays very coherently- there wasn't much dubbing according to the cover. The only problem is the singing. Whilst its ok in most places eric sounds like he's gargling with gravel on the first track and that kinda put me off it a bit, but once you get past that its rather cool. Its also really good for jamming along with and practicing blues solos etc. I'd recommend it for anyone interested in eric clapton, blues playing, or just elec guitar.
