Editorial Reviews

Rolling Stone (1/4/01, p.113) - Included in Rolling Stone's "Top 50 Albums of 2000".

Rolling Stone (7/20/00, p.136) - 3.5 stars out of 5 - "...A commercially astute meeting of like minds, hearts and voices. There are times...when Clapton's sandy aging tenor is virtually a mirror image of King's gritty bellow..."

Entertainment Weekly (6/16/00, p.90) - "...On this triumphant collaboration, the 2 cross-generational masters take on...the blues in its many guises....'father' and 'son' find plenty of common ground." - Rating: A

Q (8/00, p.100) - 3 stars out of 5 - "...[A] roof-raising R&B party, delivering a mix of classic and contemporary tunes....there's plenty on offer here for anyone with a passing interest in the [blues]..."

CMJ (7/10/00, p.24) - "...[Their] chemistry is uncanny as they tear through every avenue of the blues....a union of prodigal father and son as magnanimous as any in rock'n'roll."

JazzTimes (10/00, p.72) - "...A brilliant blues-drenched CD..."

Mojo (Publisher) (7/00, p.106) - "...A program stuffed with serious blues in which the principals reawaken even such sleeping dogs as 'Key To The Highway' and 'Worried Life Blues' - both done exceptionally....This is a slow-burning fire with hours of warmth in it."
