"For me, this is Eric Clapton at his best. The sound of his guitar... and those riffs – talk about tone for the soul. I can't imagine music like this on the radio now, sadly. In the '60s people had diverse tastes, which made the musical climate that much better and more interesting. At the risk of sounding like an old fucker, I miss that. You could hear Sunshine Of Your Love and Stevie Wonder on the same station, one right after one another.
"Even though I'm listing Disraeli Gears, I have to mention the live version of Crossroads from Wheels Of Fire. None for note, this could be the best guitar solo of all time. We all had to learn this one note for note. It was a and still is a great lesson in taste and tone."
