Eric Clapton - Money And Cigarettes

Just as 1974’s 461 Ocean Boulevard marked a confident return from the drug-aggravated funk that followed Layla, Eric Clapton’s first album for Warner Bros. is an unexpected show of renewed strength after a debilitating illness and too many sleepy records. Stylistically, Money and Cigarettes is no great leap forward from such recent Clapton blues-pop snoozers as Backless and Slowhand. He still mixes rote blues covers and barely original shuffles cut from J.J. Cale’s “After Midnight”/”Cocaine” mold with a shy, almost embarrassed understatement that is easily mistaken for superstar sloth. But the electricity quietly racing through Clapton’s crusty baritone and the saucy cluck of his and Ry Cooder’s dueling slide guitars in the album’s opener, a frisky cover of the old Sleepy John Estes number “Everybody Oughta Make a Change,” may catch you napping.
