    Here comes Eric singing Mr Johnsons blues everyone, wow. I wonder what RJ would have thought about a middle aged white multi-millionaire called Eric playing his tunes all so very perfect and nice too? Perhaps the same thought as I, total kak. Inside Eric there is a poor black man from the American south trying to get out, how cultural and interesting, oh bless.

    I'm so tired of these blues tributes that take out all the soul of the originals, pass on this.

    Yes he can play the guitar, so waht?. This should have been called 'Coma'. Eric please don't release another album, the music that you constantly make is irrelevant and as a 'star' you are totally unlovable.

    In a word: Disappointing. E.C. is an artist in his own right. But once again, as with his Muddy Waters numbers in "From the Cradle," his reverance for the original artist seems to leave his own creativity mute and for that the music suffers. Me & Mr Johnson might be fine as a museum recital. But Robert Johnson just isn't at home there. Hey E.C., how about doin' a bit of a boozer In a word: Disappointing.

    some of the versions are better than the original, for example If I had possession over Judgment Day

    Largement sous-noté, cet album est un must si vous aimez le blues. Clapton rend hommage à son modèle Robert Johnson, la légende du blues. Eric Clapton nous démontre qu'il est aussi un God à la guitare accoustique. Remarquables interpretations de Me and the devil, Red hot, et tant d'autres

  1. Clapton pays broad tribute to Johnson as a composer and public-domain synthesist.

    He doesn't have that doomed, hellhound-on-my-trail intensity that makes Johnson's recordings so spooky. But, at 58, he sounds like a man who has faced down more than a few canine devils of his own. [Apr 2004, p.102]
  3. No matter the song, from the stumbling “Me And The Devil Blues” to the murmuring “Come On In My Kitchen,” Me And Mr. Johnson sounds rehearsed and controlled.
