Blues and Rock album by Eric Clapton and Steve Winwood
2 CD edition. History rocked and rock made history during a sold-out three-gig stand at Madison Square Garden in late February 2008 when icons Eric Clapton and Steve Winwood performed a concert together for the first time since their all-too-brief days … see full wiki
Two former band mates reunite for a series of concerts performed last winter at Madison Square Garden. I did not have a chance to see these two rock legends perform, but I would have loved to. My favorite track is "Presence Of The Lord". This is a spiritual rock song that Steve and Eric sing together. Another highlight is Steve's rendition of "Georgia on My Mind". His vocals are very moving, and he really shows his skill on the piano. I also enjoy Steve's vocals on "Pearly Queen" with Clapton backing him on guitar. Both men are talented guitarists, and their talents are on display here. I love Clapton's guitar playing on "Them Changes". Winwood is equally impressive on the guitar performing "Dear Fantasy Man" and "Can't Find My Way Back Home". Clapton sings his classic hits "Around Midnight" and "Forever Man". "Cocaine" is probably the grooviest rock song I've ever heard about an illegal drug. This is excellent classic rock.
