features remastered & expanded versions of 1974 & 1975 albums '461 Ocean Boulevard' & 'There's One In Every Crowd' + bonus tracks.



the box set celebrates the period between April 1974 & June 1975 when Clapton produced the studio albums '461 Ocean Boulevard' & 'There's One In Every Crowd', as well as the live double set 'E.C. Was Here'. All three of those albums are included in this new box in remastered, expanded form, and all include previously unreleased session outtakes or unheard live performances. '461 Ocean Boulevard' includes 4 previously released outtakes (including a couple of versions of 'Getting Acquainted'), whilst amongst the bonus offerings on 'There’s One In Every Crowd' are 2 unreleased session tracks 'Burial' & 'fools Like Me', and both sides of the 'Knockin’ On Heaven’s Door' single. 'E.C. Was Here' is not only remastered, but REMIXED & expanded across 2 CDs, with numerous unissued extras such as versions of 'Layla', 'Crossroads'& 'Little Wing'. The 5th CD is taken up with Clapton’s sessions with blues guitarist & singer Freddie King. 4 tracks are featured here, including a previously unreleased 22-minute version of 'Gambling Woman Blues'.  One of the most exciting elements within this new box is the inclusion of 3 surround sound mixes on Blu-ray audio. Respected engineer Elliot Scheiner’s unreleased 5.1 mix of '461 Ocean Boulevard' is here, as well as the original quadraphonic mix of the same album. 'There’s One In Every Crowd' is also included in the original quad mix.
