The song, “cocaine”. The year 1976. We all know that the artist singing this song in 1976 all over America was…NOT ERIC CLAPTON.
In fact, the original was not by Eric. It was by J.J. Cale, a contemporary of Clapton, whom Clapton worked with on a number of songs. Eric actually released it as a single in 1977 and it was included on the hit album “Slow Hand” in 1980
