Eric Clapton
1970 US Original, Monarch Pressing With Custom ATCO Inner Sleeve. Cover VG+, Small Ding To Top Right Corner & Seam Rubs. Vinyl Is Glossy Strong VG+/EX. "Eric Clapton's Eponymous Solo Debut Was Recorded After He Completed A Tour With Delaney & Bonnie. Clapton Used The Core Of The Duo's Backing Band And Co-Wrote The Majority Of The Songs With Delaney Bramlett -- Accordingly, Eric Clapton Sounds More Laid-Back And Straightforward Than Any Of The Guitarist's Previous Recordings. There Are Still Elements Of Blues And Rock & Roll, But They're Hidden Beneath Layers Of Gospel, R&B, Country, And Pop Flourishes. And The Pop Element Of The Record Is The Strongest Of The Album's Many Elements -- "Blues Power" Isn't A Blues Song And Only "Let It Rain," The Album's Closer, Features Extended Solos. Throughout The Album, Clapton Turns Out Concise Solos That De-Emphasize His Status As Guitar God, Even When They Display Astonishing Musicality And Technique. That Is Both A Good And A Bad Thing -- It's Encouraging To Hear Him Grow And Become A More Fully Rounded Musician, But Too Often The Album Needs The Spark That Some Long Guitar Solos Would Have Given It. In Short, It Needs A Little More Of Clapton's Personality." AMG Review By Stephen Thomas Erlewine.
