lp + download

Released: 10th Dec 2012


remastered & expanded versions of clapton's iconic '77 album, with bonus tracks, previously unreleased live material & alternate mixes spread over 4 formats.

‘slowhand’ opens with the relaxed, bluesy shuffle of j.j. cale's ‘cocaine’ & sustains it throughout the course of the album. alternating between straight blues (‘mean old frisco’), country (‘lay down sally’), mainstream rock (‘cocaine’, ‘the core’), & pop (‘wonderful tonight’),  this is laid-back virtuosity -- although clapton & his band are never flashy, their playing is masterful & assured. available as a standard, remastered cd & lp, a 2cd edition with live at hammersmith odeon, 27/4/77 & bonus tracks 'looking at the rain', 'alberta', 'greyhound bus' & 'stars, strays & ashtrays', or a super deluxe boxset with the remastered cd + bonus tracks, hi-res audio dvd, 2 discs live at hammersmith odeon & the vinyl lp.
