Song 319 (Eric Clapton--"After Midnight")

I decided that this JJ Cale song that Clapton made famous would be an excellent addition to my Eric Clapton week. To be honest, I have never really enjoyed the earlier version of the song that much, but it's still a good version. However, the later recording of this song from the mid eighties is the one that I fell in love with. There is something about Eric Clapton's guitar work and Nathan East's bass that is just beyond incredible about that recording. I just love the slower, bluesy sound that is in the later version.

Here is the earlier version of the song on YouTube.
