It is all about the luck of the draw.
I discovered Jimmy Barnes because I saw the video once on MTV.
By chance, I bought the cassette when it just came out.
Radio stations never played any of it but it was a great tape.
Survivor had massive exposure though.
But I always thought Survivor as a lightweight clone of Journey.
Radio play is programed. They never play the real good stuff.
I love Eric Clapton's "Behind The Sun"
It is one of his best eighties recordings but was never overplayed.
It has the modest hit "Forever Man" on it.
Hey Octo doesn't it piss you off when a album has great songs on it but the damn radio stations only play one song off of a record? Clapton has so many good albums. His last one is mellow but it still has J.J .Cale on it.

There was another cassette I bought in the eighties that was great.

Radio never played John Norum "Total Control" album either, Bubba.

The song was called "Back On The Streets" and it still rocks.

It is also on You Tube if you want to check it out.

Eric Clapton's "Behind The Sun" was a perfect record.

It wasn't too sappy like his later work "Tears In Heaven"

I bought the record because of "Forever Man"

However, the whole album is one of his strongest efforts.

I can still listen to it.

My stepfather loves Clapton but I like only some of his stuff.

Have you ever heard of the Derek And The Dominos "Devil Road" ???

It is from the unreleased second album.

I still don't know who the singer on it was but it is awesome.

The guitar playing was outstanding and this was 1971.

Killer.

There is articles on the sessions but "Devil Road" was taken off.

Recorded at Olympic studios in 1971.

Anyway, it is 13 minutes of amazing playing and it is the best.

The unknown singer in fact, is female.

I'm surprised it still remains a bootleg.

Clapton never sounded this good, Bubba.

It could've been played on radio and people would've freaked out.

Oco that would be a rare collectors album. I've only heard the Layla sessions. I think Clapton sang and one of the other Dominos don't think Duane Allman sang.The guitars of Clapton{BRITISH BLUES} and The guitar of Duane{SOUTHERN BLUES}powerful and awesome combined Octo.

d love to hear it. I'm guessing the female singer could be Bonnie Bramlett of Delaney and Bonnie Only you know was there biggest hit and never ending love country style song. Clapton was in their band a short while.Rebecca Bramlett is now singing with Delbert Mcclinton and others. Check out Gotts get it worked on and Never been rocked enough or Blues as Bluers can get. Delbert is cool when he isn't doing country also good harp player.

It is a two disc bootleg set that I purchased years ago.

Perfect studio sound.

The band was:

Eric Clapton
Bobby Whitlock
Carl Radle
Jim Gordon

Duane Allman wasn't listed on the session.

A few instrumentals and unfinished songs of works in progress.

"Devil Road" is a long lost gem.

The recording is 13 minutes but you want it to go on...

I mean, it is that great, Bubba.

It makes "Stairway To Heaven" and "Freebird" sound lame.

I wonder why Clapton never released it?

It was years before its time in 1971.

The guitar playing is fusion, not bluesy like Clapton is known for.

They said the female singer's name in the internet article.

Never heard of her.

I have one Greatest Hits CD of Delbert McClinton.

My stepfather gave me his entire CD collection to make room.

He listens to the non stop music on his cable television.

Anyway, he didn't take care of his CD's.

They were dirty, scratched and missing or in different cases.

For Example: I have one disc of Cream "Wheels Of Fire"

The other disc is missing. LOL!

Some of Delbert's stuff is real good Like Blues as Blues can Get. Or Everytime I roll the dice.Other songs are too country and sad for me. I do like never have been rocked enough.

Tony Joe White is really good too, Bubba.

Some musicians keep playing even though they never hit it big.

Tony was cool. I still like Polk Salad Annie. He has that swamp boogie thing going on. Elvis dug him too. Same With JJ Cale he is old but still making music and doesn't care if it commercial or not.

Eric Clapton played in a few bands before going solo.

Blind Faith was only a album project yet it is a classic.

I didn't care for the Delaney And Bonnie stuff.

John Mayall is pretty good but Clapton did better later on...

Eric Clapton is willing to play with other musicians.

I think that always helped him improve his skills as a guitarist.

It was Bonnie that told Clapton he should sing more. He was shy about singing when he played with them. In Blind Faith Stevie Winwood sang most of the lead vocals.Clapton has played with just about everyone From BB King to the Beatles. I liked him and Robert Cray together.

Elvis did great covers of not very well known songs...

He did a few Tony Joe White tunes that were very inspired.

I love Elvis's versions and they were done very well.

"Polk Salad Annie" was a showcase for Elvis live.

Elvis rocked it but it was still like swamp boogie.

Elvis did pick some great material to record in the 1970's.

I wouldn't have known these people if Elvis hadn't covered them.

There is no doubt that Eric Clapton is one of the best around.

But I don't like everything he has ever done.

Some of it is sappy or just uninspired.

The unplugged thing was very successful but I didn't like it.

And I thought "From The Cradle" was a very boring blues effort.

I didn't feel any passion in some of Eric Clapton's later albums.

461 Ocean Boulevard was a good album.The Album he did with BB King was good too if you like blues. Just curious did Elvis ever do any Creedence Clearwater songs? I thought maybe he did Proud Mary not sure.

Elvis did "Proud Mary"

He did "Susie Q" once live in 1975.

I think there is another version but it has really poor sound.

I've read that he had sung "Bad Moon Rising" on stage.

But it hasn't ever shown up on bootleg.

Maybe it was a few lines.

Anyway, I wish that Elvis did do more CCR. I know he liked them.

I didn't like "From The Cradle" for some reason.

Couldn't get into it.

I have the alternate sessions for 461 Ocean Boulevard.

"Behind The Sun" is still my favorite Eric Clapton album.
