Eric Clapton: Rainbow Concert

Bud Scoppa, Rolling Stone, 25 October 1973

In a form in which individual instrumental feats are often self-indulgent and superfluous, Eric Clapton's music remains an anomaly. His greatest guitar playing has been as passionate as Otis Redding's best singing and as articulate as Bob Dylan's best songs. Clapton at his peak is as good as it gets.
