Recensie: Eric Clapton – I Still Do

27 mei 2016|Categories: Recensies|Tags: |

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.
