After years of admiring each other’s musical masterworks, guitar great J.J. Cale and three-time Rock and Roll Hall of Famer, 16-time Grammy® winner Eric Clapton teamed up for the first time to create an original album together, The Road To Escondido. The resulting hybrid sound defies being labeled, but instead finds influence across the spectrum of blues, rock, country and folk. The songs are warm and rich, with deep flowing rhythms, yet use an economy of words to express much.

In a true collaboration, Cale (whose songs “After Midnight” and “Cocaine” Clapton had previously covered) and Clapton jointly produced and recorded the album, each playing and singing on the tracks. Cale wrote 11 of the songs, Clapton wrote “Three Little Girls,” John Mayer wrote “Hard To Thrill” and the duo cover the blues classic “Sporting Life Blues.” Among the numerous guest artists are Mayer, Taj Mahal, Derek Trucks, Doyle Bramhall II, Albert Lee, and the late Billy Preston, who donated his classic keyboard talents throughout the album.

The album The Road To Escondido is the first-time collaboration from two guitar greats on one album, featuring "Ride The River" and "Danger". Half Speed Mastered for vinyl by Stan Ricker, and pressed on 180g Gram High Performance Vinyl... Because Sound Matters!
