On July 29, Eric Clapton released a bona-fide tribute to his friend and former collaborator, the late J.J. Cale.
The album, Eric Clapton & Friends: The Breeze, An Appreciation of J.J. Cale, features 16 Cale songs—from “Call Me the Breeze,” “Starbound” and “Lies” to “Magnolia” “Songbird” and “Crying Eyes”—performed by Clapton and a host of guests, including Mark Knopfler, John Mayer, Willie Nelson, Tom Petty and Don White.
