Favorite Eric Clapton Band
 
Saw the "favourite Anthony Green band" thread in General and thought to do an Eric Clapton one. Mine'd have to be Derek and the Dominos. The entire Layla album almost puts me in tears & it's completely gorgeous.

Double X 08-20-2008 07:21 PM

1. Cream
2. Derek and the Dominos
3. John Mayall's Bluesbreakers with Eric Clapton (does that count?)
4. Blind Faith

Derek and the Dominos have the best live album (Live at Filmore East) but Cream has the best studio album (Disraeli Gears) and 2 other monumental albums.

Wifey Boozer 08-20-2008 07:23 PM

Anything with Clapton counts. Cream would be my second to Derek and the Dominos, reverse of yours ha.

This definitely does count and wins hands down for me followed by Cream.

(A bit OT, but...)
^ Who else thought incorporating Sunshine of Your Love in the Goodfellas scene was rather brilliant? Though all Marty's movies seem to have an excellent score.

Scorsese is a master at incorporating music into his movies. Probably one of the best.

Wifey Boozer 08-25-2008 01:43 PM

Agreed. I think it goes along with being interested in that sort of mobster-genre. You're not gonna sync Goodfellas with pop songs, 'cuz Henry Hill's a rockstar. Dig?

spark10036 08-25-2008 05:11 PM

I vote Derek and the Dominos. One unbelievable album,and probably the best song ever (yeah I'm talking about Layla)...what is there more to say?

Wifey Boozer 08-25-2008 05:20 PM

Layla is a great song, and it has a soft spot in my heart for all time. But in a logical way of musical thinking, there are so many other songs on the Layla album that are arguably better. IE, Anyday, Bell Bottom Blues, etc.

FaSho 08-25-2008 06:51 PM

1. Derek and the Dominoes
2. Cream
3. Solo
4. Blind Faith

zekethefreak 08-25-2008 06:55 PM

I would probably go, as follows...

1. Solo
2. Cream
3. Blind Faith
4. Derek and the Dominos

But that may change...

FaSho 08-25-2008 06:57 PM

i might have put blind faith higher...but i havent heard very much of 'em

Wifey Boozer 08-25-2008 06:57 PM

Jesus, I completely forgot about Blind Faith. Have an album by them, or my grandfather does, I dunno, we switch off sometimes. But it's honestly one of the most beautiful things I've ever heard. He bought it at Last Vestige (lovely wee record shop down this way that smells like 1971 and is packed with vinyl, rare CDs and tapes, films, etc), and on the cover it says, "NOT AVAILABLE FOR PURCHASE", as a sticker. I think it's a very well-cut bootleg that someone dropped off in the used donation box, ha.

Folkie 09-03-2008 04:10 PM

I like him just as solo as compared to all his bands

lucifer_sam 09-03-2008 05:01 PM

The Allman Brothers band FTW.

Minstrel 09-03-2008 10:50 PM

No love for the Yardbirds?

1. Cream
2. Yardbirds
3. Derek & the Dominoes
4. John Mayall & The Bluesbreakers
5. Blind Faith

The Monkey 09-04-2008 03:41 AM

Eric Clapton is a bit too religious for my liking, but Cream is a pretty good band, so I'll go with that.

Double X 09-04-2008 05:00 PM

I'm not that religious, but religion can inspire great music (with the exception of any christian band). George Harrison's solo album was inspired by his love for god and it was brilliant.

jackhammer 09-04-2008 05:28 PM

Eric Clapton solo is pretty damn awful stuff. There was the odd exception. 461 Ocean Boulevard had it's moments and the mammoth 'Crossroads' boxset had some early gems tucked away but he certainly seemed to slip into bland mediocrity early on in his solo career. Shame as he is a good guitarist but a boring songwriter.

zekethefreak 09-07-2008 10:36 PM

I am currently reading Clapton's biography, and studying the bands simultaneously. I would need to rectify my earlier list, and put Blind Faith at the bottom. Derek and the Dominos may even move up further. As for the religious part, folks, according to Clapton (himself), he didn't look at himself as a religious person, and didn't even have much faith in God until his second experience in rehab, when he found himself praying, and found the ability to fight the demons that were plaguing him. I am to the early 90's in his career, after his son died, and he still does not act overly religious. Have his experiences given him faith in a higher power? Yes. Is he over the top religious? Far from it...

ubane 10-06-2008 09:20 PM

cream just because they made white room witch is my top three songs

Fruitonica 10-07-2008 06:20 AM

Not really a band as such, but I do love his collaboration with B.B King, Riding With the King. Haven't really listened to much of his other stuff though, so I'm a poor judge.

Berringer 10-10-2008 06:54 PM

I've gotten into everything Clapton's done, from the time he spent with the Yardbirds to his collaboration with J.J. Cale. My personal favorite band he played with was Cream, although it's a narrow edge.
