Me and Mr. Johnson

Me and Mr. Johnson is a blues-rock album by Eric Clapton released in 2004. The album is a tribute to legendary bluesman Robert Johnson. According to Clapton's autobiography, the album wasn't intended as a tribute. The band had rented the studio, but Clapton didn't have any songs written, so he suggested they should record Robert Johnson' songs to kill time. By the time they realised, they had recorded enough songs for an album.

Personnel

Sessions for Robert J

In late 2004, a companion project, Sessions for Robert J, was released on CD/DVD. It features Clapton and the band performing additional takes of songs from Me and Mr. Johnson, as well as others not on the album, including "From Four 'Til Late", "Terraplane Blues", "Ramblin' on my Mind", "Sweet Home Chicago", and "Stones in my Passway". Several songs are performed solo by Clapton on acoustic guitar. Between sessions, Clapton discusses Johnson's profound influence on him and other musicians. One notable segment features Clapton performing in the hotel room in Dallas, Texas, that served as a make-shift studio in 1937 for Johnson to cut his legendary recordings.
