Editors’ Notes

Complete Clapton attempts to chart a career that encompasses not only several decades but an almost unprecedented array of bands and musical styles. What comes through over the course of this two-disc collection is Eric Clapton’s ability to inhabit a diverse sequence of musical settings. While peers like Bob Dylan and the Rolling Stones have achieved longevity by honing a singular voice and sticking with it through shifting trends, Clapton has repeatedly coaxed his audience into uncharted territory. Who else could convincingly take us from the psychedelic tempest of “White Room” to the late-night reggae of “Knockin’ On Heaven’s Door” in the span of just a few years? And from there, to the soft soul balladry of “Wonderful Tonight,” the gentle R&B of “Change the World,” and the traditional blues of “Sweet Home Chicago.” Clapton's dual talent as songwriter and guitar player is encapsulated in the two versions of “Layla” included here. While the original 1970 recording is a pinnacle of rock guitar glory, the 1992 Unplugged version illuminates the great song underneath.

Amazing that is all

bought this at target today. Very good value. It is cheaper at target.

Clapton's Best!

Every single song here is absolutly great! Eric Clapton is one of the best if not THE best guitarist in the world and every song here is worth every penny!

By the time Eric Clapton launched his solo career with the release of his self-titled debut album in mid-1970, he was long established as one of the world's major rock stars due to his group affiliations — the Yardbirds, John Mayall's Bluesbreakers, Cream, and Blind Faith — which had demonstrated his claim to being the best rock guitarist of his generation. That it took Clapton so long to go out on his own, however, was evidence of a degree of reticence unusual for one of his stature....
