What began as the most anticipated 'super-group' of all time fizzled to an end quickly. Clapton, Winwood, Baker and Gretsch just couldn't pull it all together. They made a lackluster LP and played some concerts, but in-fighting and ego's tore them apart within a year. More was less.
This one is more of an abstract cartoon than the rest of the '69 sketches, which is probably a reflection of my feelings about this group. Plus the fact that the likenesses were drawn from memory. I've heard Clapton perform "Presence of the Lord" a few times and prefer his vocal on it over the wailing Steve Winwood original recording.
I hope to get one more piece done for this series.
