There are numerous unreleased Bob Marley tracks that have been circulating in the trading world for decades. Many of them are from Bob's "bedroom tapes" which are numerous tapes he made while writing new songs. Finally, after years of begging and prodding from fans, the family released one of those tracks officially in 2005. It's called 'Slogans' and they hired Clapton to play guitar over it. It was hyped up pretty big that he was on the track. I got it the day it came out in several different mediums and liked what they had done with the track. The original is just Bob and his acoustic and a simple drum track. So I liked the new 2005 version but I have to say I was rather disappointed in Eric's playing. It was what I was looking forward to since I had heard this song thousands of times. It sounds to me like he literally just stopped the by the studio, listened to the track once or maybe nonece, said hit record and made one pass through. It sounds to me like what we like to refer to as "noodling" in the purest form. The solo at 2:10 sounds like uninspired noodling, the playing throughout sounds unimaginative and boring. Which on one hand would not be a big surprise if it was just an other track but this release was a big deal at the time. This was released on Bob's 60th b-day. It was hyped big time and a lot of eyes were on this release and the fact that Clapton was playing on it was advertised big time. Then I hear it and I immediately think, I could have played that, nearly anyone could have played that. Where's a little magic at least, where's some inspiration, where's his guitar genius? Am I am and my ears crazy or no? And I am a Clapton fan so I'm not bashing him, I'm questioning his playing on this one particular track.
