Blues Power: Songs of Eric Clapton

Editorial Reviews

Barnes & Noble - Roberta Penn
Eric Clapton has spent much of his life saluting the blues, and now a dozen of the best contemporary blues artists complete the circle by covering songs associated with the guitar god. As might be expected, the guitar is playing most impressive part of BLUES POWER: SONGS OF ERIC CLAPTON. Larry McCray opens with a blazing version of "Miss You," Honeyboy Edwards takes Robert Johnson's "Crossroads" back to the Delta, and 1999 Grammy winner Otis Rush makes his ax positively weep through "Old Love," the most stunning song in the set. Chicago blues queen Koko Taylor gets the award for making a Clapton tune her very own, as she does on the title cut. But classics like "Lay ...

Barnes & Noble - Roberta Penn
Eric Clapton has spent much of his life saluting the blues, and now a dozen of the best contemporary blues artists complete the circle by covering songs associated with the guitar god. As might be expected, the guitar is playing most impressive part of BLUES POWER: SONGS OF ERIC CLAPTON. Larry McCray opens with a blazing version of "Miss You," Honeyboy Edwards takes Robert Johnson's "Crossroads" back to the Delta, and 1999 Grammy winner Otis Rush makes his ax positively weep through "Old Love," the most stunning song in the set. Chicago blues queen Koko Taylor gets the award for making a Clapton tune her very own, as she does on the title cut. But classics like "Lay Down Sally" Carl Weathersby, "Strange Brew" Buddy Guy, and "Layla" Eric Gales and Derek Trucks stick fairly close to Clapton's original versions. The variety on display here is a testament to Clapton's remarkable ability to bridge a Delta-informed sound with rock and pop -- and that's blues power.
All Music Guide - Steve Huey
Although Blues Power: Songs of Eric Clapton contains a couple versions of blues standards recorded at one time or another by Clapton, it's mostly devoted to covers of Clapton compositions by blues veterans and relative newcomers alike i.e., either influences on Clapton or artists who have been influenced by him. The performances are generally spot-on, but that's to be expected from an artist roster that includes Koko Taylor, Pinetop Perkins, Otis Rush, Bo Diddley, Buddy Guy, Larry McCray, and Eric Gales, among others.
