Classy comeback from former Cream man
In a forthcoming Uncut interview, “God”?aka Eric Clapton?hails his old friend Jack as a “genius” and claims the former Cream bass player and singer taught him everything he knows about songwriting. Bruce’s wittily-titled second album of new songs in three years goes some way towards reaffirming Clapton’s tribute. Inventive new songs such as “So They Invented Race” and “Lost In The City” sit alongside interesting remakes of Cream classics such as “We’re Going Wrong”, “I Feel Free” and “Politician”. The soulful Glaswegian voice has probably got better over the years, making this an album of jazz-blues-rock that oozes class.
