Eric Clapton Slowhand - Review

Slowhand

Eric Clapton’s Slowhand album is the fourth and final album that features this particular back up band. While this CD includes one of his most famous numbers, "Cocaine," it has much more to offer than that one good song.  This album includes four classics; "The Core," "Lay Down Sally," "Wonderful Tonight," and "Cocaine," as well as many good ones. One tune that is exceptional that gets left off the over supply of Eric Clapton’s Greatest Hits releases is “The Core,” a song that is enhanced with great back-up vocals and horns. In addition to having hits, the flow of this CD magically blend rock, blues, and country with some funky rhythmic shuffles serving up not only one of Eric Clapton’s best solo discs, but one of rock’s all time classic releases.
