Recensie: Eric Clapton – Live in San Diego (With Special Guest JJ Cale)

Allemachtig, wat gaat ie tekeer! Foute titel, natuurlijk. Had gewoon Still Rocking, Rocking San Diego of Rockin’ Off Your Socks moeten zijn. Maar goed, de titel 'Live in San Diego' dekt de lading. Maar dit live-album van Eric Clapton is veel meer dan dat. Het is het zoveelste bewijs dat Clapton, kan rocken als de beste. De live-opname klinkt prima, met gelukkig nauwelijks ruimte voor publieksparticipatie of aankondigingen.

7 juli 2016|Categorieën: Recensies|Tags: , |

De doorgewinterde fan van Eric Clapton komt in 2016 vooralsnog goed aan zijn trekken. Met het in mei uitgebrachte studioalbum 'I Still Do' liet de inmiddels 71-jarige Brit zien dat hij er nog altijd toe in staat is een prachtige plaat op te nemen en nu, amper twee maanden later verschijnt er met ‘Crossroads Revisited: Selections From The Crossroads Guitar Festivals’ een prachtige anthologie van vier Crossroads Guitar Festivals (2004, 2007, 2010, 2013), allen door Clapton georganiseerd ten behoeve van zijn in 1998 opgerichte Crossroads Centre in Antigua, een kliniek voor verslaafden. Het album bevat maar liefst eenenveertig tracks verdeeld over drie cd’s en is ook digitaal verkrijgbaar. Al met al beslaat het album bijna vier uur aan hoogtepunten van de festivals, waar eerder overigens wel al dvd’s van verschenen. Resumerend mag gezegd dat het album een waar muzikaal spektakel is, hetgeen natuurlijk niet vreemd is als je kijkt naar de line-up van de festivals.

Eric Clapton heeft nog niet de behoefte om zijn gitaar aan de wilgen te hangen. Deze maand verscheen er een nieuw album van de eenenzeventig jarige Britse gitaarheld. 'I Still Do' is het drieëntwintigste soloalbum van "Slowhand". Een album met eigen nummers en covers. En Clapton heeft weer een aantal gerenommeerde musici weten te strikken. Eric Clapton gaf zijn album de titel 'I Still Do' mee en hij slaat daarmee de spijker op de kop. De tijden van Derek & The Dominos zullen waarschijnlijk niet terugkeren, maar "Slowhand" is nog springlevend. Hij doet er echt nog toe. 'I Still Do' verveelt geen seconde en is een lust voor het oor. Een schitterend album.
