I wouldn’t know a ’57 Chevy if it ran me over several times, dislike screaming guitars and thus, it appears, I do not have a rock ‘n’ roll heart (although my pancreas is partial to jazz). While this song was shopped to Clapton (and sold), the songwriters might just as well have gone directly to Madison Avenue with this one, since it’s tailor made for a truck commercial or a beer commercial or some product where the target audience would be likely to engage in a discussion of whether the ’57 Chevy really was the best Chevy model after the commercial was over. The B side is better, a Clapton original that shuffles along nicely. This single appears to be the first record released on Clapton’s own Duck label, which served him well into the ‘90s.
