Free stream of new Clapton / JJ Cale Album
'The Road to Escondido' is a collaboration between Eric Clapton and JJ Cale that came out last week.
I'm listening to it as I type, and liking it a lot.

I haven't been listening to much Clapton for the past few years, because he just started sounding... tired, I guess, to me.
On this one, he sounds relaxed, an entirely different thing. He and JJ Cale together have made some extremley enjoyable, laid-back grooves on this album.
Incidentally, when the stream window opened for the first time last night, it started a process named 'vsnpt13.exe', which seriously messed up my keyboard. Killed keys, made others open commands instead of typing letters. When I dumped the process, all went back to normal, so no big deal. When I re-opened at work today, no such problems, so it might have just been my home system.
