Eric Clapton's self titled "Clapton" Though many of the somewhat poor reviews I've read on this one, speaking for myself, I loved it. A really nice soft blend of old blues and some early jazz influence in it. A REALLY great laid back easy listening CD.

I agree Jon, that is a very good album. Don't pay attention to customer reviews. Clapton's latest release, Old Sock, gets similar treatment in the reviews, but I like it too. It is a collection of his favorite songs from his influences since his childhood.

Clapton is at a stage in his career that he's just having fun and doing what he wants to, free from the constraints of industry contracts and record execs. People don't hear what they are used to hearing and they trash the album in the reviews. ::)

Yeah man! That sounds better than ever. I dare say it is the best I've ever heard them.
Interesting...no bass player.
