My Eric Clapton collection ranked in order

dangermash
 
Layla & Other Assorted Love Songs
Layla & Other Assorted Love Songs
"It's very tough deciding whether it's Layla or Dark Side of the Moon that's the greatest album ever.  Layla obviously comes top of the Clapton list though."
Unplugged
Unplugged
"Take away a guitarist's amp if you want to find out how good he really is.  A virtuoso performance from Clapton and also from Chuck Leavell on piano."
Bluesbreakers With Eric Clapton
Bluesbreakers With Eric Clapton
"Classic British Blues revolution stuff with some blistering finger twiddling guitar work from Clapton."
Blind Faith
Blind Faith
"No other album sonds like this.  Steve Winwood's keyboards and soaring vocals over Clapton's guitar give it a uniquely ecclesiastical feel.  Some great piano and guitar workouts here too."
On Tour With Eric Clapton
On Tour With Eric Clapton
"The most fun album on the list and one that never fails to brighten up my day.  Worth noting the presence of future Dominos Radle, Whitlock and Gordon in the backing group."
Live From Madison Square Garden
Live From Madison Square Garden
"Unlike the BB collaboration (below) this is a case of the whole exceeding the sum of the parts.  Brilliant interplay between two legends,  Hey Mr Fantasy is to die for!"
Disraeli Gears
Disraeli Gears
"A perfect balance between famous guitar licks and semi serious drug addled whimsy that hits the spot.  A classic.  That's seven different artists on the list already."
Live At The Fillmore
Live At The Fillmore
"Clapton's guitar and Whitlock's piano get a huge workout on this album.  Fantastic soaring solos that never sound self indulgent."
Slowhand

"A chilling out album.  I think it's great, even if that does qualify me as a middle-of-the-road cardigan-wearing old fart."
Just One Night
Just One Night
"Great mix of blues, balads and rockers.  Lively audience.  A backing group that's well up for it.  What more do you want?"
24 Nights/Recorded Live At The Royal Albert Hall, London.   1990-1991

"Inconsistent.  It's not until the second disc that Clapton really lets loose.  But when he does......"
Riding With The King
Riding With The King
"Two great guitarists.  It's a treat to hear the two of them performing together but it's inconsistent, with some blinding tracks and some duffers."
The Pros And Cons Of Hitch Hiking
The Pros And Cons Of Hitch Hiking
"What would Pink Floyd be like with Clapton in place of Gilmour?  Here's your answer.  Wright & Mason missing too, but you get my point.  Some great guitar solos, but Gilmour's songwriting is missed."
Eric Clapton

"An upbeat album that bounces along quite nicely, while not making me want to jump off the sofa,"
Wheels Of Fire
Wheels Of Fire
"White Room and Crossroads are classic tracks but too much surreal whimsy prog stuff in the studio (reminiscent of Piper at Gates of Dawn by Pink Floyd) and too much self indulgent live jamming."
Clapton Is God
Clapton Is God
"Includes lots of Yardbirds stuff and some work with other artists, none of which I'm overenamored with apart from some interesting work with Jimmy Page and with the Immediate Allstars (who?)."
461 Ocean Boulevard
461 Ocean Boulevard
"A pleasant listen but the lack of a real guitar workout ultimately disappoints."
From The Cradle
From The Cradle
"A passionless backing group and a lack of soul in Clapton's vocals make this a pretty dry album, with only a couple of tracks being exceptions."
Eric Clapton: The Autobiography
Eric Clapton: The Autobiography
"That's the music ranked.  But also worth mentioning this very honest autobiography that doesn't attempt to hide the pain and shame in his past.  Stay happy Eric."
