It’s probably no secret that I am a huge EC fan. I mean, my daughter’s name is Layla. I play a sunburst Strat. I’ve purchased at least three copies of From the Cradle.
You can read my official review of Old Sock over on the PG website, here.
I have to say even though this album as a whole isn’t one of his shining moments, I think the original tracks contain some of the best writing and playing since Pilgrim. Yes, I liked that album. If “She’s Gone” doesn’t rock your face, just leave now.
Hopefully, like I mentioned in the review, I hope Clapton will once again give us a solid all-blues album (and tour? He just said he was only touring until 70) before riding off into the sunset of one-offs and guest appearances.
And please. PLEASE. Can someone tell EC not to use vacation selfies from his iPhone for his album art?
