Song of the Day – 5/20/16

A long road trip on the East Coast to cross off a number of breweries on the “must visit” list has caused a serious delay in Song of the Day posts. Prepare yourself for 2 weeks worth coming at you tonight… “Pretending” – Eric Clapton – Journeyman – 1989

Song of the Day – 4/17/16

It’s a bluesy kind of day. “Ramblin’ On My Mind” – John Mayall & the Bluesbreakers – Blues Breakers with Eric Clapton – 1966

Song of the Day – 4/4/16

This is one of Clapton’s most underrated tracks. Good collaboration with Duane Allman as part of sessions for Derek & the Dominos. Editor’s Note: The compilation called Crossroads that includes many of Clapton’s best works and some hidden gems was released in 1988. The original recording of this track was 1970 during the making of … Continue reading

Song of the Day – 8/30/14

It’s been far too long without a Clapton appearance. It’s pretty difficult to go wrong selecting any song from his vast catalog. “Nobody Knows You When You’re Down and Out” – Derek and the Dominos – Layla and Other Assorted Love Songs – 1970

Song of the Day – 6/4/14
