Happy Birthday to Eric Clapton! Eric's cover of JJ Cale's "After Midnight" in 1970 helped launch Cale's career as a singer-songwriter and recording artist. Then, immediately upon Cale's passing, Eric plotted a tribute album with Cale's other admirers - The Breeze-An Appreciation of JJ Cale. The Breeze leads off with Cale's own voice, taken from his intro to the same song when Cale used it to lead off his debut album, Naturally. With sincere Thanks to Eric, the video here is an emotion packed example of one artist paying a deep and sincere tribute to another.
