    Interesting note in Clapton's autobiography about this. "...a dream come true".

    Here's the thing I note about this tune

    I can tell you when BB is playing.

    Anybody competent could be playing Clapton's parts.

    Those riffs do not stand out.

    Perhaps this is because Clapton gave BB the spotlight, but I don't think so.

    BB's guitar playing is a unique voice in music.

    Clapton's?

    Not so much.

    They're both great, of course, but BB is, I think, unique.
