E.C. Listening: Eric Clapton's 50 Greatest Guitar Moments
Clapton at 70: The 50 greatest guitar moments of Eric Clapton's five-decade career.

Eric Clapton—Just One Night (1980)
Recorded in Japan in December 1979, Just One Night isn’t exactly a firecracker of a live album.
Although the band is tight and gritty, the material is spotty, since the tour was supporting Clapton’s low-spark 1978 album, Backless. Meanwhile, Clapton’s tone can best be described as “Strat into amp. The end.”
However, all of the above can’t keep a good song down, and Clapton shines on his extended cover of Otis Rush’s “Double Trouble.” This minimalist masterpiece in C minor spotlights Clapton’s dynamic monolog of a solo, one punctuated by pinch harmonics and a nearly flawless choice of notes.
