From the cradle to the grave, Eric Clapton considers himself a bluesman, no matter how far afield he ventures into the pop realm. And on this heartfelt project, the great British guitarist reinterprets some of his favorite blues songs from some of the most significant artists of the genre. Tipping his hat to Muddy Waters, Howlin' Wolf, Lowell Fulson, Freddie King, Elmore James, and others, Clapton takes on such classics as “I’m Tore Down,” “Reconsider Baby,” “It Hurts Me Too,” and “Standin’ Round Cryin'.” The sincerity of his love for this material manifests itself in the intense guitar solos that highlight the album. This one came from the heart, and it shows.
