Was Here No Reason to Cry Slowhand There are other good songs on here. A rather good album, but definitely brings out the poor efforts from EC. There are four songs on this CD that interest me. The first is "Sign Language" which he sings with Bob Dylan. Dylan in fact wrote the tune. It remains an interesting duet.
County Jail Blues is of interest because of the slide that he plays on his dobro. It has a Mississippi delta blues style that goes right back to Robert Johnson. If you like slide guitar this song is worth checking out. The next " All our past times is a song which he does with members of the band. It is definitely a country-western song. Last but certainly not least is " Double Trouble" Double Trouble even to this day is one of the classic blues songs of his career.
When you see the broken pick on the cover it's a clue. This is a good album but certainly not a career album. A real beauty. Eric's vocals on this album is his absolute best - torn, broken, longing, boozed up sandpaper vocals garnished with heart and honesty.
All in all, "No Reason To Cry" is a star-studded, beautifully solid performed latin-blues-rockin' work of art, with an absolutely magical atmosphere. You can almost taste the bourbon on this one Marcy Levy has a unique voice. Cannot imagine some Clapton's songs without her vocals.
This album is one of the bests of Clapton. Mainly because of Marcy. The critics hated this one?
