Excellent Album - His Best

"This is truly a great album but I take issue with what one reviewer ("theboomer") said. He wrote a very good review in general but he also wrote that the great solo at the end of "Look at Me, Look at You " is by Eric Clapton. The reviewer went on so much about Clapton's solo, that someone needed to respond.

First off the song title is "Look at You, Look at Me" not "Look at Me, Look at You". And while "theboomer" is correct in that Eric Clapton did play the un-credited solo on "While My Guitar Gently Weeps" (both Clapton and Harrison have publicly talked about this). Clapton did not play the solo on "Look at You, Look at Me". I've been playing guitar for 30 years now and the solo is not at all in Clapton's style. I've studied most of Clapton's solos and this solo is much slower than he plays and it doesn't have any of his trademark riffs, pulls-offs or bends. These are techniques that Clapton is well known for and that he uses in all of his solos. None of Clapton's techniques or trademarks are present in the solo from "Look at You, Look at Me". By comparison, if you listen to the solo from "While My Guitar Gently Weeps", all of Clapton's usual techniques are present and identifiable, leaving no doubt that it's a Clapton solo.

The solo in "Look at You, Look at Me" is by Dave Mason. Dave Mason is a great guitar player in his own right and is quite capable of playing this solo. I used to have an album, Dave Mason Is Alive - 1973, where he plays "Look at You, Look at Me" live. He plays the live solo very similar to the studio version that is on the Alone Together album.
Dave Mason's first is his best

"I'd forgotten how good this album was. I owned it many years ago but had sold it off. Not too long ago I had the pleasure of seeing Dave Mason live. This was the third time for me and even though he is now in his sixties, he gave a great performance. Unfortunately, his biggest hit was "We Just Disagree" which pales in comparison to the work contained on this album. There isn't a weak cut thoughout. His supporting cast is excellent and includes among others Delaney and Bonnie, Jim Capaldi, Rita Coolidge, and Leon Russell. The back up singing on "Waiting on You" is superb. "Shouldn't Took More Than You Gave" and "Look at You Look at Me" are extended cuts which show off instrumental magic. Mason's songwriting has never been stronger when compared to his other releases. Personally, one of my favorite cuts is the lesser known "Just a Song". This album is one of the greatest 'classic rock' albums of all time and no collection would be complete without it."
