Retrieved November 22, Recording Industry Association of America. Eric Clapton. Albums discography Singles I Aint Got You - Various - Clapton Is God.The Cream Of Early Eric (CD) Videography. Eric Clapton's Rainbow Concert E. It will be a must buy for all Clapton fans. He sings from rocks to blues. When I hears this both songs, the only thing I do is rush to the living room where my dad's hi-fi system located and raise the volume.
After that, I take nice seat and think what Mr Clapton had written on the song lyric, about the story of a song. I do say that every songs he written is something behind his life and family.
Finally, I do hope him success in career and sing more. It's a worth? But, unfortunately, not much more. I consider myself a pretty "die-hard" Clapton fan and to me, the first track of this album - Reptile was absolutely phenomenal! Yes, it is I Aint Got You - Various - Clapton Is God.The Cream Of Early Eric (CD) blues and neither is it rock, but instead it is Bossa Nova! This just shows EC's genius and mastery of his domain! I agree - Clapton is still God and probably will be for a very long time to come indeed!
I think in terms of musical versatility. Eric is up there with the true kings: he has covered so many levels in music styles over the years and this album is testament to that. Some say it has a "retro" feel but I think its more traditional, "retro" sound such a horrible word and Eric has even shunned it when talking about this album.
The two instrumentals rank up their with his recent soundtrack work I Aint Got You - Various - Clapton Is God.The Cream Of Early Eric (CD) that is indeed a big compliment. All the blues numbers almost sound studio originals from the 50's and 60's, they have such an authentic feeling backed up with great backing vocals and consistent piano.
Traveling Light reminds me a lot of After Midnight I don't know why, its just a lilting groovy track. The acoustic numbers are introspective and very touching, "Broken Down" and the superb "Find Myself" are highlights. All in all this is a strongly personal an very heartfelt and expressive album; its emotional power alone makes it so impressive but the vocals by EC his best up to now and the versatile song content on offer make this one of Eric's best albums.
This one will surely stand the test of time. I enjoy the upbeat songs of EC like original Layla but this new sound of Eric in this album is to slow. There isn't one real fast-make-ya-wanna-dance song on the album. Clapton still is god! EC has finally let us in on who has influenced him the most while he was growing up in Ripley.
I love this collection of songs! I especially like the opening dedication paragraphs written by EC. It was very moving. The songs he has written for the CD are very beautiful pieces of music. No doubt due to further maturing of his songwriting talent. Son and Sylvia is absolutely the best.
It is simple yet melodic and touching. EC has surrounded himself with even more top notch musicians which makes this CD a feast for the ears! I'll be listening to this one for years as I enjoy all the great performances on it. Congratulations and thanks to EC, he has certainly done it again. This is neither the sissy " Pilgrim ", nor the ultra blues and personal favorite Riding With The Kingthis is a whole new old animal. The Recording Academy.
