EDITORS’ NOTES

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.

**CLAPTON IS GOD**

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.
