Excellent blues album where Clapton really shows his capabilities on lead guitar. 'Steppin Out' is a blinder of a track with some superb guitar work. For Clapton this paved the way for Derek and the Dominoes 'Layla'.

Un disco che "spacca il blues", tra com'era prima e come lo sarebbe stato dopo. CRUCIALE.

Essential British Blues album from the father of white blues.
And it adds to it the presence of Eric Claton whose level of soloing was unmatched at the time of its release.

If you're into Clapton or blues get it.
If you're into rock and want to understand why the electric guitar started to sound different at mid 60s, listen to this.

A rip roaring blues record. Unlike the as yet released first Fleetwood Mac album, blues breakers, sounds raw and gritty, as opposed to Mac's more generic take on the blues. This really is an exhilarating record. Great playing all round and great tracks in, all your love, double crossing time, and, steppin' out. This is the ultimate British blues album.

From gtroda
It's historically important to blues fans and Clapton's guitar is great as always, but for some reason it seems kind of forgettable. Steppin' Out and What'd I Say are great.

It's the blues. It's simple, and it's good. Clapton's guitar work is stellar, as always. Steppin' Out is a key track.

Good blues, with some of Clapton's best playing outside of Layla propelling it to classic level. If you like Clapton, it's an absolute must. If you like blues, I recommend a listen at the least.
