AllMusic Review by

Among budget-line Eric Clapton releases, The Professor Blues Review, Montreux 1986 is unusual as it is not another recycling of early Yardbirds tracks, it instead has a 1986 performance where Clapton, jamming with Otis Rush. Having Rush as a sparring partner spurs some good moments from Clapton -- maybe not enough to make this a must hear, but hearing a mid-80s Clapton lay back and play some blues is enough to make this one of the better budget-line discs from Clapton.
