This first recorded pairing between the 74-year-old King and the 55-year-old Clapton was put together in the most obvious way: Clapton arranged the session using many of his regular musicians, picked the songs, and co-produced with his partner Simon Climie. That ought to mean that King would be a virtual guest star rather than earning a co-billing, but because of Clapton's respect for his elder, it nearly works the other way around.

Riding With the King is the sound of two roosters scratching, crowing and strutting around the henhouse. King and Clapton whip up loads of crying guitar genius, like the licks they trade on Three O’Clock Blues and When My Heart Beats Like a Hammer. The pair also have a blast sharing the mic. King even gets his English protégé to unleash a Memphis growl in the midst of a soul-funk version of Sam & Dave’s Hold On! I’m Comin’. Slowhand never sounded so wild. Riding With the King .

Riding with The King brings the two living legends together for an entire album for the first time. When it comes to rockin' blues, Riding With The King is as great as it will ever get. Certified Multi-Platinum (2 times)by the RIAA. If you're beginning to discover . King's music or are new to Eric Clapton's career, this may be the album to start learning where Clapton's influences came from. Here, he teams with the blues legend on a new song, the title track, and several re-workings of his songs. I like "Riding with the King," "Ten Long Years," "Key to the Highway," "Three O'clock Blues," "Help the Poor," "I Wanna Be," the rollicking "Days of Old," and "When My Heart Beats like a Hammer.

Riding With the King. Marry You. Three O’Clock Blues. I Wanna Be. Worried Life Blues.
