Eric Clapton: From the Cradle (1994)

clapton from the cradle

By Scott Goldfine

Hot on the heels of his huge, Grammy-winning “Unplugged” set, Eric Clapton returns with a collection of the blues, the whole blues and nothing but the blues. Coming off like a cross between Johnny Winter and B.B. King, Slowhand lends his nimble electric, acoustic and slide guitar stylings to 16 varied, classic blues nuggets.

A real treat, this is a candidate for blues album of the year.
