EDITORS’ NOTES

More than just a tribute album, Me and Mr. Johnson is the product of years and years of obsession—a totem to Clapton's enduring devotion to his blues idol, Robert Johnson. On "They're Red Hot," he adds playful piano and drums to Johnson's original romp, while guitarist Doyle Bramhall II ends the party with a solo that’s equal parts blues, country, and rockabilly. "Love in Vain" is appropriately forlorn, with Clapton making his guitar weep as a harmonica moans in the background.
