As these opinion pieces have gone on I thought I’d find these lists easier and easier to do. After the 80’s, which was extremely difficult, the 90’s was relatively easy but this one turned out to be harder than I thought it would be. Turns out I have a large number of favourite albums from the 00’s and it was tough deciding on which ones would make my top five. However, I finally did it.
Three years since Clapton’s last studio outing Old Sock, Slowhand returns with a very down to earth and laid back album which in many ways is more of a successor to 2010’s Clapton than Old Sock was. Containing a collection of hand picked blues covers alongside original Clapton numbers, I Still Do sees Clapton retain the title of England’s all time greatest blues player, a title he will never lose.
