Reviews

  • "2 PALS? CUT AN ALBUM"!

    By LuieT
    J.J. Always hated the spotlight & the business part of "Music"! Eric & others, realized the talent of this genuine guy, writing a type of mixed music that joined Country, Blues & Rock & he called it the "Tulsa Sound"! This Album's Great! There's not 1 bad song on this CD & if you like great music, great musicians, great musical arrangements & awesome Guitar from EC? I strongly recommend you buy this CD! Both Shine, As All Players Do!
  • 5 stars for JJ, 2 for Eric

    These are mostly wonderfully subtle JJ tracks (with a few Clapton imitations), and while his and Eric's vocals mix well enough, Eric dumbs down the whole thing. Why? Eric's guitar is just about everything JJ's is not: Clapton is heavy handed, leaden, and even brusque on songs that ask for the art of touch. Unfortunately, this is something Eric's countless incarnations have left him without -- no sensibility, authenticity, or deftness of detail. No wonder he admires JJ. JJ is now gone and here is JJ album spoiled by one of MOR's most known visitors. What a shame.
  • We will miss you!

    J.J. Cale you will be missed. Your talent may have been over looked by many but you had so many fans who loved you and your music. God Bless You and may you rest in peace.
  • Excellent - but it's Escondido Mexico (not San Diego)

    Great album - Hard to Thrill and others have the vibe that's so thrilling yet mellow. Some real gems here.

    What a great album by these legends. Everyone knows the history so I won't restate it. To the reviewer who complained about the production of the album... Read up on Cale and learn your history. Cale has his own special touch during production, which helps him obtain his sound. Clapton himself said he hoped he would learn how JJ got his sound, when they made this record. I wish these guys would do it one more time.
  • what ?

    why are 90% of you people whining? and what was Clapton's racist comment? please point it out to me; I'll be back later for a response . . . . . .
  • Just get it.

    This really does sound like 1973 and that's a good thing. But that's not to say it sounds rehashed. J.J. Cale's world class writing ability gives the songs a fresh, exciting quality often missing when old artists like these get together. When they sing in unison it seems so natural and effortless. They must have had a blast making this record. It's so good I hope they record something else together. Highly recommended, especially the opening (Danger) and closing (Ride the River) tracks. But it's all good.

    So glad to hear the "soul brother's" unite. Everytime I play it I feel something new. Any Way The Wind Blows is just "smooth-butt-boogie"!! And...Missing Person...don't we all know someone in our past that we are still currious about. Thanks JJ and Clapton for the awesome tunes, I love every one of them!!
