3.0 out of 5 stars under valued clapton 'solo' debut., 28 April 2006
This review is from: Eric Clapton (Audio CD)
Eric Clapton has probably been involved in more 'debut' albums than anyone else, being in Yardbirds, Bluesbreakers, Cream, Blind Faith, Derek And The Dominoes and then officially solo. Eric is clearly stoned/wasted on the album cover and it looks like his Strat is propping him up in the chair!. At this point in his career Clapton was playing some of his best guitar as shown on the majestic 'Layla' album. This is a nice little companion to that album and the appropriately titled 'slunky' kicks off the album as though the tape operator has just started recording mid way through a jam session, Bobby Keys pre Brown Sugar on sax. Quality. 'After Midnight' still gets a bit of radio play today and is probably the most well known track on the album. Why is he SO bad these days?, apart from the blues albums he hasn't made a truly great solo album for years. This is some prime era Slowhand, even if the material is a bit uneven, great playing from all involved.

3.0 out of 5 stars Enjoyable, 28 April 2006
This is a little cracker. Punchy pop/punk, much like Happiness in Magazines. If you enjoyed that album you will like this. I hope with the next album Coxon goes for something a little more challenging. This gets 3 instead of 4 stars in that despite being very good it does feel like a bit of a retread of Happiness. 'Standing on my Own Again' has some nice power chording and emotive lyrics [what else from Mr Coxon?] after that the album settles into punk mode. Loud and fast guitar playing, if you see him live you know that he can recreate his guitar sound so it isn't too over produced though sometimes it sounds a bit processed. I recommend this album, the extra disc is well worth a bit more splash as you get Graham awkwardly shuffling his feet and telling you about each track, plus some live footage which proves he can deliver the goods.
