Biography

Eric Clapton has often stated that JJ Cale is one of the single most important figures in rock history, a sentiment echoed by many of his fellow musicians. Cale’s influence on Clapton was profound, and his influence on many more of today’s artists cannot be overstated. To honor JJ’s legacy, a year after his passing, Clapton gathered a group of like-minded friends and ... Read more in Amazon's Eric Clapton Store

4.0 out of 5 stars A solid if overlooked album August 2, 2000
Format:Audio CD
"Money and Cigarettes" is not one of Eric Clapton's better remembered albums, but that's not because it isn't any good. It ranks somewhere in the second tier of Clapton albums behind classics like "461 Ocean Boulevard" and "Layla" but well ahead of some of his lesser efforts. The best songs here include the easy rockin' "I've Got a Rock'n'Roll Heart," "Pretty Girl," and "Slow Down Linda." The album is also one of Clapton's more bluesy, which perhaps accounts in part for its lack of popularity. Nevertheless, it is a worthwhile listen for Clapton fans.

5.0 out of 5 stars One of his best. July 22, 1999
By A Customer
Format:Audio CD
This Eric Clapton album is like a port in a storm, in a way. All of his albums after "Backless" and until "Journeyman" are kind of disappointing, with the strong exception of this one. All of his albums in the 70's and 80's started to drift heavily onto a more poppy sheen, this one included, but it's the songs themselves that speak for this album. There just seems to be this energy and sincerity to the way Clapton plays and sings that I have heard rarely since, and hadn't been displayed to fans since 1977's "Slowhand". The lone single, "I've Got A Rock N' Roll Heart" is (other than being a Clapton fan who wanted more than just "Crossroads") what led me here, and it's not even the strongest cut on here. The whole album is quite strong, melodic, fun, and one of the better Clapton albums. If you're going to pick three to buy, buy "Slowhand", "Eric Clapton" (his solo debut) and this one.

4.0 out of 5 stars Even Clapton Had To Make A Change August 1, 2010
Format:Audio CD
The early 1980's were something of a forgotton time for Eric Clapton's career.Now he was about to come back very strongly but,the fact was that Clapton's soul,blues and boogie woogie mix of pop/rock music just wasn't really being paid attention to as much anymore now that different post punk and new wave music was being bought to the forefront on the radio. Those genres were definately a breath of fresh air in terms of innovation to an extent but for those who stayed with people like Clapton he actually still had a lot to say. The most interesting thing about this album is that it doesn't really stray all that much from the style Clapton had been using during his mid to late 70's solo career. With Ry Cooder and Albert Lee on the board this is very much a laid back styled rhythm & blues affair. The reason I use that term is because blues artists of this era who were working within the then current ideom actually wound up doing not necessarily straight ahead blues but a sound that was something like a modern variation on what Ray Charles and Aretha Franklin did in the 50's and 60's. Claptons version of "Everbody Oughta Make A Change",therefore is top notch rhythm & blues and,for an even more decent reference there is the presense of Booker T & The MG's Donald "Duck" Dunn actualy ups the ante even more. Many of the songs such as "The Shape You're In","Ain't Going Down" and "Man Overboard" follow a similar lead: none are exactly lowdown blues or smooth blues exactly but have have that rhythic bite and crunch that brings it up to having something of a retro/modern soul flavor to it. "Pretty Girl" brings the same approch to a wonderful romantic ballad that features some wonderful slide guitar playing. Read more ›

5.0 out of 5 stars Clapton's First CD For Warner Brothers Is A Classic April 20, 2005
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
MONEY AND CIGARETTES, Eric Clapton's first CD for his new label, Warner Brothers Records, is a classic in the vein of his previous four Polydor albums and 461 OCEAN BOULEVARD. With Donald "Duck" Dunn of Booker T. & The MGs on bass and Tom Dowd once again producing, Clapton puts out a low-key set of classic blues-rock and soul. On "The Shape You're In", he warns his wife of the dangers of her alcoholism, whereas "Ain't Going Down" is about perseverance in the face of adversity, and "I've Got A Rock And Roll Heart" celebrates the music itself. Even though this album tanked commercially, becoming his first in several years not to go gold, it's still classic Clapton.

4.0 out of 5 stars Money & Cigarettes a worthy disc. October 4, 2006
Format:Audio CD
Ok folks here it goes.The year was 1983 and comercialism was still going strong.Most groups put out music every year.In the seventies you had to wait a life time{so it seems} I've got a rock n roll heart bellowed from radio stations.It sold the album.Its amazing when I look back and bought records on one single.Sometimes it was a good album and other times it was like getting dental work done without novacane.This album is laid back but enjoyable.Its not Slowhand but its not reptile either.Eric might of been relaxing on a tropical island somewhere but money was flowing in just from that song alone.The song man overboard is a little cheezey but doesn't kill the album.Crazy Country Hop is always a treat thanks to the nutty lyrics and music by J.Otis.The good thing about today as I mentioned earlier was that you can sample music so you know what you're in for.I sampled this and bought it.Your call!

4.0 out of 5 stars Easy Hand July 27, 2001
Format:Audio CD
After the disappointing Another Ticket, Eric Clapton followed it up with the often overlooked, Money & Cigarettes. The album is a easy going affair of simple, fun and enjoyable tunes. Nothing included here is an instant classic, but Mr. Clapton sounds like he's enjoying himself and you will equally enjoy songs like "I've Got A Rock & Roll Heart", "Crazy Country Hop", "Crosscut Saw", "Man Overboard" and "The Shape You're In".
