5.0 out of 5 stars Deluxe Edition 19 Dec 2012
Format:Audio CD
Slowhand is Eric's most successful solo album from the '70's, and not without good reason, although as the first 3 tracks became hit singles and live set staples, it developed something of a 'greatest hits' feel - "Cocaine", "Wonderful Tonight" and "Lay Down Sally" became so familiar that the numbers which follow seemed to be eclipsed and the album started to sound unbalanced (unlike on its original release). 35 years on, this expanded double-disc edition is a welcome opportunity to revisit what remains one of his best-selling albums, having now had the 'deluxe' treatment.

Disc 1 includes 3 previously unreleased out-takes from the album sessions, along with a solo version of "Alberta", which appeared on Blues. These are all interesting tracks but, as with most out-takes, the reason they didn't appear on the original album is that they just weren't as good as those that did. An interesting listen none-the-less. Actually, I like "Stars, Strays And Ashtrays" and can't help picturing Eric singing it sitting at a lonely bar in the Deep South (Baton Rouge, not Bexhill-on-Sea).

Disc 2 is billed as the "Best of" Clapton's live set from the Hammersmith Odeon (27/4/77). For most, the main reason for wanting to have this Deluxe Edition will probably be the 5 previously unreleased tracks, "Steady Rollin' Man", "Can't Find My Way Home", "Badge", "I Shot The Sheriff" and "Layla". "Steady Rollin' Man" - one of my favourite numbers from 461 Ocean Boulevard - really rocks, although Eric's main solo sometimes promises more than it delivers. Ironically, one of the highlights of this set is when Clapton hands over to Yvonne Elliman, for a deeply moving "Can't Find My Way Home".

4.0 out of 5 stars Probably Eric Clapton's best album 2 Oct 2001
By A Customer
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
From the first to the last track this is a CD of great music. Opening with the wonderfully rocky feel of "Cocaine", and following up with a mix of blues and love songs, including the ever popular "Wonderful tonight" and my personal favourite "Lay down Sally". All the way through there is the usual excellent guitar work (although this isn't as prominent as it might be) overlaid with Eric's unique voice. All the tracks have a feel of having been lovingly put together by a mastercraftsman. A must for anyone's Clapton collection

Slowhand pulls some damn fine guitaring out of somewhere with this album, Cocaine is a classic, as are most of the tracks, Clapton's style is bluesy as usual and if you're a fan of clappers you should have this album really.

4.0 out of 5 stars fantastic album! 25 Mar 2002
Format:Audio CD
Slow Hand is definitive Eric Clapton, and a must for old and new fans. For those people who know they would like Eric Clapton but wouldn't know where to begin, then look no further. Slow hand is an essential purchace.
It contains many of his lengendary singniture tunes, from the amazing cover of J.J. Cale's Cocaine to the timeless romance of Wonderful Tonight.
The other songs are far from just album fillers. Each one exhibiting Clapton's legendary skill with both acoustic and electric guitar and showcasing his underated vocal talent.
All in all, an essential addition to any music fans collection.

5.0 out of 5 stars One of Eric's Finest Albums Enhanced. 7 Mar 2014
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
Slowhand is possibly Eric's finest solo album (with "461 Ocean Boulevard" the main other contender for that title). Here it also has four outtakes, including a studio version of Alberta (which he began his Old Grey Whistle Test performance with). The second disk is a live disk actually recorded before the studio album and featuring none of the tracks from it. It does however include a version of Steady Rolling Man (I can't immediately think of another live version he has released of this) and two rather rarer tracks in Knocking on Heaven's Door and Stormy Monday. A nice bonus to a great album.

4.0 out of 5 stars Not the best CD (in my opinion)
I have 'Unplugged' by Clapton and I thoroughly enjoy it. This CD doesn't seem as crisp and clear - perhaps it's my ears! Still worth a listen though.............

What lets this otherwise fine 1977 Clapton record down is Eric himself, whose rather underpowered singing and reticent guitar work lets the side down. Read more
