    What they do here is cover 12 classic blues songs

    It sounds like the beginning of a story: "So, Slowhand and the King of the Blues were riding in a car ..." If this is a musical journey, it's the kind that rolls down long, empty stretches of country highway at 80 miles an hour, with the top down and the stereo blasting. Clapton and King may be more city than country, but this collection has the relaxed, laid-back feel that only comes from a pair of veterans doing what they do best. What they do here is cover 12 classic blues songs, many of them staples of King's repertoire, so the title of this album makes sense. Whether it's the rollicking rock & roll of the title track, or the acoustic shuffle of "Key to the Highway," or the sweet notes of "When My Heart Beats Like a Hammer," a real sense of pleasure comes through on this album, the kind of pleasure one gets from jamming late at night with a good friend.

    Arguably the two greatest living blues guitarists

    Every aspect of Riding With the King is as good as expected--the guitar playing is dazzling, King's voice is as warm, robust, and powerful as ever, and even the notoriously soft-voiced Clapton is able to leave his mark. The only thing that keeps this album from earning top marks is what the two artists have already accomplished in their long and impressive careers--while Riding With the King is a technically accomplished and very satisfying blues record, it simply cannot compete with classics like King's Live at the Regal or Clapton's Slowhand. That said, it would be a worthy addition to any blues library, and is an admirable showcase for two brilliant guitarists. And for driving music, there's nothing better than Riding With the King.

    What can I say about these two men? Eric Clapton and BB King are two guitarists that have inspired many. The way they play off each other is classic. The CD was too short...not really, but I could have kept listening to them play the blues all night.

    This is more than you hoped for. If you like BB and you like Eric, you'll love this album. Blues Boy is the king of blues & Eric is the king of rock. Put it in, turn it on, sit back and enjoy yourself!!!
