Back Home with Eric Clapton

Here’s another album from Eric Clapton that fans will surely appreciate. Back Home, “Clapton's first recording of (mostly) original material since 2001's Reptile, is a combination of solo compositions, covers, and collaborations with writing partner Simon Climie. Backing musicians include John Mayer (guitar), Blind Faith mate Steve Winwood (synthesizer), and longtime associate Billy Preston (keyboards), whose expertise with the Hammond B3 shines brightest on the Vince Gill cowritten "One Day". There are no real surprises on Back home, just Clapton doing what he does best--with an extra spring in his step.”
