A live version of “Tulsa Time” made for an OK single, but the crowd really flips for “Cocaine.” You can hear some of the post-Frampton/Aerosmith filtering in the lead guitar, especially on “Cocaine,” where it nearly threatens to speak. Honestly, few artists have done better with mediocre material than Clapton. I mean, who else could turn a “Tulsa Time” into a Top 40 single? Curiously, I can’t find an example of “Cocaine” as an A side anywhere, despite earning its share of radio play.
