The Road To Escondido
by Eric Clapton
Released: Oct 2006
Those who believe that Eric Clapton is not God will be delighted to know that J.J. Cale dominates most of this album (he wrote 11 of the 14 tracks). Others who caught on to Slowhand's '70s period when it was evident that all Clapton wanted was to be like Cale (he covered Cale's "Cocaine" and "After Midnight," among others, and blatantly adopted Cale's persona), should relish in a collaboration between the two that was long overdue. It's uncanny how much this slow burning, bluesy, twangy album sounds like a '70s Cale album with modern day production. Slowhand gets even slower.
