The original J.J. Cale or the Eric Clapton version?
Like Heather said, most of us are attuned to the Eric Clapton recording of Cocaine and we definitely play Slowhand's version a lot more on The Sound.
But Nik's right too, J.J. Cale's the original composer who released it in 1976, before Clapton covered it a year later on his 1977 album, Slowhand. Plus, Cale's version hit No. 1 on the NZ charts on 6th March 1977, all the more reason to feature the song on our A to Z!
We need your help to decide which version to include on the Sound A to Z - text 'JJ CALE' or 'ERIC CLAPTON' to 339 now!
