Another Ticket


Another ticket no pasa por ser uno de los mejores discos de Eric Clapton. Rara vez recordado y solo utilizado en contadas ocasiones en los repertorios de directo del astro guitarril, para mi representa lo mejor de su larga etapa "americana" de la que salieron discos como Backless, Slowhand o el directo Just One Night. El disco abunda en las composiciones propias. que por una vez son las que mas me gustan. Temas como Catch me if you can, Rita Mae o I can't stand it sobresalen y le muestran quiza mas animado de lo habitual en aquellos años en los que los exitos solian venir de versiones ajenas o baladones que entraban facilmente en los charts. Albert Lee anda por ahi ... y de ahi salen como no podía ser de otra manera un par de bluesazos mas a añadir a la cuenta como Floating Bridge y Blow wind Blow y con todo queda un album bastante compensado y desafortunadamente tambien bastante olvidado. Clapton parece relajado en Another Ticket (la cancion que trata de acercarse a Wonderful Tonight sin llegar a ello), con temas que fluyen con naturalidad (Black Rose, Hold me Lord) y usa un perfil medio que luego seguirá acompañandole en Money and Cigarrettes. Ese perfil medio es en esencia, la clave de su carrera en esta época. El autentico Clapton para mi, pasadas las divinidades iniciales, es realmente este. No el idolo pop de despues de Behind the Sun o August. No el idolo rockero de Cream. Mas bien el tipo tranquilo de discos como Another Ticket. Seguramente algo que va mucho mas con su forma de ser y que le permite mostrarse mucho mas creativo y clasico que en otras fases de su carrera que resultan mucho mas aburridas.
