A Musicians review of this album...
on April 1, 2004
I am going to approach this review from what 'I' experienced through it, and not what I think YOU will experience!!
What can I say about this album that hasn't already been said? Everyone loves it for their own reasons, and if you're anything like me, you've been completely moved by it on either an emotional or entertaining level. This is just one of those albums that anyone who listens to it can never say they DIDN'T like it.
13--I was just beginning to play bass, piano, and guitar. I'd already known how to play drums for years. I had been listening to Rock music from the 70's and had been an absolute BEATLE freak. When a friend of mine let me borrow his 'Unplugged' CD, I was hesitant because I'd never really heard of Clapton before, but I accepted it. I took it home, put it on, and though I'd never listened to music like that before, I immediately loved it! See, (...)This was just so fresh to me, and I loved it from the start. I literally listened to it from start to finish!
What struck me immediately was the overall 'emotion' the album put out. From the lyrics straight through to every single note each musician played, it just seemed to connect with me. I didn't know what it was that I was getting out of the album then, but I knew I felt something special back then..
23--When I revert back to this album today, I still get the same feelings about it that I did back then. But now that I'm 10 years older and am a skilled musician, I am still blown away by the instrumentation on the album. Each musician plays with so much fun and emotion that you always hear something new when you put the cd on.
Take it from a plain ole' fan. I love it, it's stylings are limitless, and even though it's a live album, the overall 'production' is even better than most of Claptons studio output (especially his seventies works).
You will not be dissapointed. Try it out, and you'll see what I mean.
All The Best, -AndyMan-
