Product Description

Product Description

ERIC CLAPTON The Cream Of Clapton (1994 UK 14-track CD compilation album featuring Creams Sunshine Of Your Love White Room Badge and more through to Derek & The Dominoes Layla solo classics like Wonderful Tonight and the legendary cover IShot The Sheriff and much more picture sleeve booklet the sleeve is in great shape and the disc shows only light evidence of play - excellent copy)

Amazon.co.uk

The Cream of Eric Clapton still manages to raise its head as Slowhand's definitive greatest-hits package, despite umpteen albums and an armful of Grammys since its release in 1987. Opening with one of the most famous rock intros ever, "Layla" has been the envy of bedroom guitarists for the last three decades. Next up is a choice selection of Cream's finest with hits such as "Sunshine of Your Love" and "White Room" plus the breakneck blues of "Crossroads" as a reminder of what Clapton did before his period of substandard covers, such as Bob Marley's "I Shot the Sheriff" or JJ Cale's "Cocaine". The latter half of the album is not up to par with the incredible start but does redeem itself with the beautiful ode to love, "Wonderful Tonight" and the chicken-picking "Lay Down Sally", though with its vague chronological order, The Cream of Eric Clapton does slowly regress into the tired ground of a rock dinosaur.--Georgina Collins

The first three quarters of this album display Clapton's incredible ability in groups such as the cream and derek and the dominos, but tracks such as swing low sweet chariot lack the same talent.the variety in this album is excellent but most people like a certain era of clapton, for raw blues buy from the cradle,or r+b buy john mayall's bluesbreakers featuring clapton,for rock pop buy august or behind the sun,for excellent psychedelic rock/blues buy disraeli gears by the cream.the best albums in my opinion are, disraeli gears,layla+other assorted love songs,ec was here.these cover the majority of claptons quality music. but this album could be a good startin point as it has such variety, and from this album u can find ur favourite clapton era.

I am not a huge Clapton fan and prefer Bert Jansch , Ry Cooder and Stephen Stills . Since I am not convinced of his divinity but needed him in my collection , I went for this compilation . It is ideal . There are some dud tracks - the insufferable Layla crops up yet again ( how this can be a rock classic when the vocal comes from inside a cardboard box is beyond me ) as does the vomit inducing Wonderful Tonight . Still this is why the real God invented the skip button on the remote . The other tracks are fine and include Cream's best numbers . For the Clapton nut a poor buy but for me just right . I doubt if I will play it very much though .

Format: Audio CD
"The Cream of Eric Clapton" combines neatly "Strange Brew: The Best Of Cream" and "Timepieces: The Best of Eric Clapton", featuring 6 of the 12 songs on the former album and 8 of the 11 from the latter. in this, it omits the powerful "SWLABR" and the catchy "Born Under A Bad Sign" both by Cream and the fast and very enjoyable "After Midnight" and "Willie and the Hand Jive", a more mellow effort, from Timepieces, omissions which are frankly disappointing. having said that, the songs that are included are, to a man, excellent examples of clapton's undisputed genius. Personally i would recommend buying both albums but this one encapsulates the essence of both into just one cd. which is nice.

Eric Clapton was given the nickname 'god' in the sixties when he was the original guitar hero. This album of 'hits' covers the early and middle years of Erics great career. This is a good place to start if you are new to Eric's music, but be warned you may then need to buy the original albums from which tese tracks were taken. Another suggestion would be to buy 'Crossroads' a more comprehensive collection of Eric's guitar playing and singing.

I usually do not go in for short reviews but there is not much to say on this one. This is someone else's (and we do not know who) selection of what they think is the Cream of Clapton. It may be used as a beginning album or just a synopsis for those that just want to have a Clapton sample in their library.
Bottom line all these songs are on original albums and if you just happen to like this combination then there are no ringers or odd songs in there to just fill space/time.
