iTunes Editors’ Notes

1992’s Unplugged sold more than 19 million copies worldwide and won six GRAMMY® Awards, including Record the Year and Album of the Year. In 2013, Eric Clapton, touring in celebration of his 50th year as a professional musician, released a remastered version of Unplugged, including an essential deluxe version that adds six bonus tracks, rehearsals, and several songs not featured on the original album. Early versions of “Circus” and “My Father’s Eyes” (in two takes) precede their appearance on 1998’s Pilgrim. A cover of Big Maceo Merriweather’s “Worried Life Blues” and alternate takes of Jerry Lynn Williams’ “Running on Faith” and Robert Johnson’s “Walkin’ Blues” fill out the extras. This expands a great album, where there’s no such thing as too much of a good thing. The acoustic reworking of “Layla” remains the centerpiece of the original disc, with “Tears in Heaven” (originally recorded for the Rush soundtrack) the emotionally resonant timepiece. (It was written, with Will Jennings, about Clapton’s pain and suffering after the death of his four-year-old son Conor.) Timeless means timeless.

Customer Reviews

Its Still The Unplugged You Love But Even Better

When this unplugged album was recorded in 1992 it won 6 grammys in one night. If you listen to it you will know why. Eric's play on his materpiece "Layla" is fantastic as im sure you all know because why else would you be listening to the deluxe version.
What's new on this album is Circus, My Father's Eyes, Worried Life Blues, Running on Faith (Alternate), and Walkin' Blues (Alternate. Circus is one of my favorite Clapton songs because it truly captures his final moments with his son. This unplugged version is rawer and slightly more soulful than on his "Pilgrim" album simply because this is a more intimate setting. Both takes of "My Father's Eyes" are very similar. It was never said why they weren't included on the original recording, but most of us concluded that it's because one of the takes was recorded somewhate sloppy, having to restart the song because of a rare Clapton mistake.
"Worried Life Blues" is another blues standard that Eric plays a lot, so if you are a fan im sure you have heard it. Lastly, a somewhat inferior, but different version of "Running On Faith". To me, the slide in the beginning of this song just has a weaker riff than the one played on the original recording.
In all, if you dont already have the masterpiece that is "Unplugged", I suggest to buy the deluxe version because there are gems on here that many of us have been waiting for. for a long long time.

Amazing. Epic. Timeless.

Amazing. Epic. Timeless.

I love this man.

Unplugged has always been a stand-out album for me, but the addition of early versions of other tracks - particularly My Father's Eyes - just show how great he really is, and what a fantastic band played on this album. And yes, I do have a kazoo for San Francisco Bay Blues....

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....
