Following the platinum success of „Slowhand“, „Backless“ continued Eric Clapton's transformation into a singer/songwriter with better-than-average chops after a lifetime of guitar godhood. Eschewing the star-studded cameos of „No Reason To Cry“, Clapton instead relied on his core group of the '70s: George Terry, Carl Radle, Jamie Oldaker, Dick Simms and Marcy Levy. Levy in particular, proved her worth by co-writing the slide-drenched 'Roll It' with Slowhand. Her passionate testifying on this as well as her sparkling harmonies on the Don Williams-influenced 'Promises' made up for fellow back-up singer Yvonne Elliman's departure following Slowhand's release.
