    Nice blues album -- but not that great?

    I enjoyed this album, but didn't find any of the songs particularly grabbed me (well maybe the one with the wah-wah at the start). I suspect this album will succeed big time, but only because of the star status of EC & BB (who are both great guitarists).

    Clapton and King leave you wanting more!

    Its too bad they didn't put the fire in all the songs like the slow blues numbers. They carry the album. Thats where you will find the best guitar and vocal work. I had hoped King would push Clapton the way Duane Allman did. But it was not to be. Clapton seams content to just play the same licks and solo's over and over again. As I said, I did enjoy the slow blues tunes though. They alone make the album worth the money. It's just tobad the rest of the album doesn't match the intensity of the slow tunes. The acoustic songs did nothing for me. Im sorry but after hearing Clapton wail on Key To The Highway (Dominoes) and Worried Life Blues (Crossroads 2) I don't understand the point of doing it on acoustic. He could never top the Strat performance's. He and King should have cranked up the tube amps on those tunes, I was surprised they didn't. I think Clapton's singing ability has over taken his guitar ability.
