iTunes Review

Clapton had been an electric guitar god for virtually his entire career. Then, in 1992, he went acoustic for an MTV Unplugged session. The resulting set became one of the biggest albums of his career, as well as a GRAMMY® winner for the heartfelt tribute to his late son, "Tears in Heaven." Clapton does have a band backing him here; it plays in an understated, acoustic style, which perfectly complements the album's low-key nature. Aside from "Tears," other highlights include an acoustic version of "Layla," as well as some killer blues playing on "Rollin' and Tumblin'," "Walkin' Blues," and Bo Diddley's "Before You Accuse Me." If you're looking for Clapton to tear your head off with electric blues riffs, this isn't the place to find that. But if you're looking for him to tear your heart out with beautiful playing, you won't be disappointed.

I'm 28 years old, my mother RAISED me on this extraordinary man. Blessed to have attended 5 concerts so far hoping more and each one is like just the most surreal ecstasy. When I was 5-6 I told my mom when I'm a mommy and have a baby girl I will name her Layla.. Well 20 years later I did end up having a daughter and I most definitely named her Layla. The day her father and I met it was one of the first things I informed him to.. We ever have a baby and it's a girl, ain't naming her anything else other than Layla. Lol ERIC CLAPTON has been a major part of my life his music is my life. This particular album is one of my favorites, he is just a beautiful soul, he just never ceases to amaze me.

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. And his debut...
