How Music Changed

    Until now, it seemed that Eric Clapton was just a restless soul. He left three bands due to his anxiety or discomfort (Yardbirds, Cream, Blind Faith), so it would be natural to assume that restlessness was his nature, but he was simply trying to find a place that was comfortable.

    It is telling that his exposure to the American musicians in Delaney and Bonnie seemed to offer him exactly what he was looking for. As a sideman in a band of talented American musicians, Clapton found satisfaction and finally felt like he was capable of making an album of his own, provided the American musicians supported his efforts.

    Featured tracks include;

    1) Bad Boy

    2) Blues Power

    3) After Midnight

    4) Told You For the Last Time

    5) Let It Rain

    6) Tell the Truth (jam)

    7) Tell the Truth (45)

    8) Roll It Over

    9) Mean Old World
