Eric Clapton: Sessions For Robert Johnson

Sound — 10
I am a huge Eric Clapton fan, I have always loved his stuff, and always will, all of his albums have bene great, and this one is no exception. This CD is awsome, I love it to death, Eric Clapton plays really good blues on this record, which are covers by Robert Johnson, the whole band has a great sound including Billy Preston on keyboard/piano, Andy Fairweather Low on guitar, and Nathan East on bass, with other great players. Some of my favorite songs are Sweet Home Chicago and Kind Hearted Women Blues.

Eric Clapton has an amazing voice, I think he has one of the best voices ever in rock. Not much to say here except that the lyrics are amazing and that eric doesn't hold back when he sings on this record, he hits high and low notes, he is an amazing singer.

I think this is a great great CD done by Eric Clapton, I love the blues licks and riffs. Eric's solos are probably what I love the most about this record, he plays with speed, and plays absolutely amazing, if it were stolen or lost, I would defeinately buy it again, it is the best CD of 2004 in my opinion, I highly reccomend this CD to any Eric Clapton/blues/Robert Johnson fan.

    This is definately one of my favourite Clapton CD's. And the DVD that comes with it is awesome.
