Synopsis by Mark Deming
Eric Clapton pays homage to one of his greatest influences -- the rural blues musician Robert Johnson, who left behind a legacy of remarkable songs and recordings following his death in 1938 -- in this special DVD-CD release. The DVD in Eric Clapton: Sessions for Robert J. features footage of Clapton and his band rehearing for the tour which followed the release of Clapton's album Me and Mr. Johnson, as well as performing an acoustic set in the Dallas warehouse where Johnson's final recording session was held; the CD features music drawn from the same sessions. Selections include "Love in Vain," "If I Had Possession Over Judgement Day," "Stop Breaking Down Blues," "Hellhound on My Trail," "From Four Until Late," and many more.
