The exceptionally talented Blues artist Eric Clapton has released him CD entitled Me And Mr. Johnson. I am very confident and happy to announce that I believe Eric Clapton fans, and Blues fans alike will be pleased with this one. With the release of Me And Mr. Johnson Eric Clapton’s artistic excellence is on full display as Clapton has once again delivered a brilliant collection of tracks that could very well be him best work to date.The CD launches with an outstanding track, When You Got A Good Friend, that I anticipate will be heard on radio stations everywhere, and deservedly so. It’s a really nice track.Blues music fans will recognize some of the well known guests that have been assembled to play along with Clapton on several of the tracks. Artists like Andy Fairweather-Low and Billy Preston just to name a couple.Overall Me And Mr. Johnson is an outstanding release. Quite possibly Eric Clapton's best to date. Really sensational from beginning to end.
If you're even mildly into Blues music you'll enjoy this CD.If you’re a Eric Clapton fan this is a CD your collection flat cannot be without. In fact, this is one of those CDs that you don’t even have to be a fan of Clapton, or even Blues to know is good. This is just good music. Period.While the entire CD is really very good the truly standout tunes are track 1 - When You Got A Good Friend, track 4 - Me And The Devil Blues, and track 11 - If I Had Possession Over Judgement Day.My SmoothLee Bonus Pick, and the one that got Sore [...as in "Stuck On REpeat"] is track 10 - Come On In My Kitchen.
