You Tube of the Week – Eric Clapton

When Eric Clapton puts on his blues hat, there are very few guitar players who can stand in next to him.  In this scorching version of Otis Rush’s “Groaning the Blues,” Clapton feels every note like it’s coming out of some late night juke joint in Chicago. He’s dripping blues, playing fast, slowing it down, massaging those fine high notes. I wish Clapton would do a full fledged blues tour, though if he starts with a number like this, I’m not sure there would be any need to play the rest of the show.
