Eric Clapton: No Reason To Cry (RSO)

Bud Scoppa, Phonograph Record, October 1976

When Clapton’s good, he’s as good as they get — Layla stays in the "play" pile in every collection I have access to, Disraeli Gears sounds better to me now than it did when ‘Sunshine Of Your Love’/ ‘SWLABR’ was on every greasy spoon’s jukebox, and 461 Ocean Boulevard has the shadowy seductiveness of a rock nocturne.
