Readers' Poll: Eric Clapton's Top 10 Guitar Albums



+ Add a Comment


Yeah, I think 'Wynton Marsalis and Eric Clapton Play the Blues' was done as a favor to Marsalis in return for the stellar backup work he did on Clapton's previous album 'Clapton'. That one had a lot of Jazz flavor backing up the mostly blues effort, and included work from Marsalis as well as Sir Alan Touissant and other notables based in the New Orleans Jazz community.

The Marsalis/Clapton album seems to be primarily a Marsalis project with some guitar fill from Clapton. Think horn, high-hat, and bass, with a sprinklng of guitar just for fun.

I was thoroughly dissappointed from a blues standpoint and gave the CD/DVD combo to by buddy at work who loves Wynton Marsalis. He really liked it.



Derek and the Dominos, "Layla and Other Assorted Love Songs" was as much about Duane Allman as Eric Clapton. Without Duane and his slide Layla is just another song (album). Clapton's not God, just a good guitar player. (Am I going to hell for saying it, I don't care!)
