This review is from: Eric Clapton - Day by Day: The Early Years 1963-1982 (Day-by-Day Series) (Hardcover)
Mark Roberty is Eric Clapton fan number one, followed his entire career, every band, every gig, every trip into any studio in the world, noted who played on every session, every album he's played as guest on, you name it he's recoded it and now released the first part of a two piece pair of books on all these things. As a fan from Eric's days with The Yardbirds, John Mayall, Cream, Delaney & Bonnie, Derek & The Dominos, Blind Faith plus the solo years and been involved on a previous book myself on his time with John Mayall, I looked forward to Mark's latest book on Eric.
This is done diary style loads of pictures, accounts of tours by friends ,fellow musicians, producers, every date in the studio, on the road from University balls to small clubs to the major arenas of the world (of which there will be much more in volume two I'm sure). I found myself going through the times and places I'd seen him, its like reliving your youth at times , like the one day festival in Spalding in the tulip auction rooms there, terrible sound but a line up that included Pink Floyd, Jimi Hendrix, Cream, Move, Geno Washington's Ram Jam Band, and all for less that a pound. The clubs and town halls where we saw Cream emerging as the ultimate supergroup.
The amazing unreleased recordings of Eric, enough for an album full with George Harrison, recordings with The Rolling Stones, not live cuts but studio ones. There is just so much to enjoy here, start it and hours later your still head down in there absorbing the contents. In his book a few years back Mark said he'd heard then over seventy two hours of unreleased Clapton tracks many better than those released, ummmm ! For any EC fan this book is simply an absolute must, unmissable. Eric celebrates this year fifty years as he puts it further on up the road. If your bought a tour programme this year the whole thing is a listing of his live dates over the years, this book takes those adds photos, posters and much much more to keep any music fan happy for months to come. A labour of love but a book so full of life, of facts, of fantastic recording dates and line up, listings of songs played on every tour on every gig those recoded those not.
Simply get it, music book(s) of the year its just gottsa be !

This review is from: Eric Clapton - Day by Day: The Early Years 1963-1982 (Day-by-Day Series) (Hardcover)
Marc Roberty is a good writer and an enormous Clapton fan. He has written numerous books - some in conjunction with Eric - This tome is very interesting and well put together although I've docked a star becuase it does lack some of the passion you would hope to come through in a book of this nature by someone as enthusiatic about his subject as the author clearly is

This review is from: Eric Clapton - Day by Day: The Early Years 1963-1982 (Day-by-Day Series) (Hardcover)
EC's life is well known by all, but the excellence of this book is its presentation, as a diary. We can trace his steps by era, year, month, day. Highly recommended as a reference guide
