  • Featuring tunes culled from a handful of albums released in the '70s, TIME PIECES is a great representation of Eric Clapton's transition from high-flying guitar hero to a more subdued and introspective singer/songwriter/interpreter. In embracing a style influenced by the Band and country singer Don Williams, Clapton's work became more diverse. When Slowhand wasn't turning J.J. Cale into a household name ("Cocaine," "After Midnight") he was doing the same thing for Bob Marley and reggae music.
  • After taking Marley's "I Shot The Sheriff" to the top of the charts in 1974, Clapton's immersion in this then-exotic genre further manifested itself on his versions of Dylan's "Knockin' On Heaven's Door" and the traditional gospel hymn "Swing Low Sweet Chariot." E.C.'s output during this period also documented the heartbreak ("Layla") and eventual triumph ("Wonderful Tonight") encountered in his pursuit of Patti Boyd (aka Mrs. George Harrison).
Professional Reviews
Q (6/95, p.134) - 4 Stars - Excellent - "...What's here represents his gradual ascent through rehabilitation to deification. It documents the shift away from the heavy blues that had originally made his name to the more relaxed, personable stance of today..."
