Overview

Co-produced by guitarist and long-time collaborator Doyle Bramhall II, Clapton features an all-star cast of musical collaborations, starting with the legendary JJ Cale, drummer Jim Keltner, bassist Willie Weeks, and keyboardist Walt Richmond. Additional guests include Steve Winwood, Wynton Marsalis, Sheryl Crow, Allen Toussaint, and Derek Trucks.

Clapton touches on everything from century-old traditional brass bands to little-known country blues to brand-new originals. The result is both relaxed and revelatory and unlike anything the guitarist has done in his legendary career.

"This album wasn't what it was intended to be at all," says Eric Clapton. "It's actually better than it was meant to be because, in a way, I just let it happen. It's an eclectic collection of songs that weren't really on the map -- and I like it so much because if it's a surprise to the fans, that's only because it's a surprise to me, as well."

Don't miss the Barnes & Noble edition of the album, featuring the exclusive bonus track "Take A Little Walk With Me." From the Label
