Jack Bruce was a far better singer as well as songwriter

Just because the music was written to be radio friendly doesn't mean it can't be great.

You don't think his later return to Blues warrants any attention? I think that From the Cradle is an excellent album, as is his collaboration album with B.B. King...

Look at the collars on that shirt! Large collars were fashionable in those days, but those are de trop, proper elephant's ears.

The title of this song somewhat salaciously makes me think of 'golden showers' and 'water sports'...

 
Yikes. This is a blues piece in the up tempo. No need to bring skavy gravy into the song subject's sorrow.  I'll just play my air guitar.

Salacious indeed and slightly revealing that such a subject popped into your mind. . . of course, the elephant ears collars were designed with mopping up in mind.

Actually..... Yep! 

He is an amazing axeman in the tradition of JJ Cale and Mr. Clapton.  If they were around, he could also confidently stand on the stage and trade licks with Hendrix and Vaughn.  The more you know...

To all of you in California - I hope you get plenty of it, soon. As a former denizen of both NoCal and SoCal, you have my support.

Also, wonderful song by EC.

Super tasty tune.  Had the good fortune to sit 3rd row center in Phoenix for his show last week, very decent show to open the tour heading up to Crossroads in NYC, with nice slide work from Doyle Bramhall, the awesome drumming of Steve Jordan, and nice organ work and vocals from Paul Carrack, who sang on Mike (Rutherford) and the Mechanics' "The Living Years".  Clapton termed the middle 3rd or so of the set "the Robert Johnson segment"...was pleasantly surprised to get that solid a dose of some really sweet blues stuff leveraging Jordan (who anchors John Mayer in his Blues Trio format with Pino Palladino on bass).  Opening act was the The Wallflowers, also well worth seeing.  Next stop JM in October, who is not a big fave here on RP but not a bad player and a lot of fun live.

I remember jamming with this bass player many moons ago. This was the one song he kept on trying to get me to play but I had never heard it. All he had was this bass line and I really like it but just couldn't fill it in

 
Did you ever learn the song?

I think this might be your best yet. Just pops out at you. And the brooding troubled posture fits him perfectly.
