Product Description

ERIC CLAPTON Clapton Chronicles (2002 Taiwanese 15-track CD picture sleeve + wrap-around obi-strip)

Amazon.co.uk

If this is your first exposure to Eric Clapton, a bit of bewilderment would be in order. This is the legendary guitar icon. This is (as his early apostles once proclaimed) God. Ranging from the mid-80s through to the late 90s, The Clapton Chronicles owes less to the groundbreaking blues-rock of Clapton's 60s and 70s classics than to the polished-to-a-glare pop of Phil Collins, who produced one of the tracks included in this 14-song anthology. His reinterpretation of his greatest recording--the once-gripping, now-placid "Layla"--perhaps best illustrates Clapton at middle-age: Who wants to bask in his darkest period? Not Clapton, who converts his surging, purging charge into a soothing stroll. And perhaps not fans of such docile MOR fare as "My Father's Eyes", "Tears in Heaven" and the two new tracks, "Blue Eyes Blue" and "Get Lost". --Steven Stolder

Once a master of blues guitar rock, in the last twenty years Eric Clapton has turned his talents to pop-rock. Chronicles is the definitive introduction to pop-rock Clapton. It is an excellent introduction to Clapton's recent music. The guitar playing is all over the album and is good but not the dazzling stuff of his early years that became the stuff of legend. Highlights of this CD include the beautiful, acoustically based Tears in Heaven, the live, acoustic reworking of Layla and the live version of Wonderful Tonight. Those listeners who want to know why Clapton is regarded as a guitar legend and would like to hear his work before he became Chris De Burgh's older brother of this CD, should buy Derek and the Dominoes' Layla.

Five stars isn't enough. We have a massive collection of cd's of many various artists. This is the best ever. EVERY track is superb. You don't have to be a staunch Eric Clapton fan to appreciate the quality, we have had many customers to our restaurant hear it as background music and ask what it is & where to buy etc. River of tears & My fathers eyes are superb tracks. Truly a genious at work.

If this was the best of Clapton then there would be none of his albums in my collection. No surprise to see Phil Collins was involved, this is Clapton sans fire, sans soul, sans almost everything. Despite his inconsistent output he has produced some magical albums from Mayall onwards, be picky there are much much better albums than this MOR, corporate moneygrabber.

Yet another Warner group CD which my version 9362-47564-2 (Copyright and Patented 1999 Reprise Records, made in Germany) won't play on any of my PCs or my media players or my media server. It crashes iTunes if I try to use it to play. In other software it just produces loud background crackles and noise. I suspect but I am not certain, that this could be a manufacturer's deliberate ploy to prevent "copy pirating" but it unfortunately means it can't be streamed to anywhere in my house but can play on an old Denon CD/DVD player in one small room.
Not only that, but the music is extremely disappointing. Certainly not the best of... in my view FWIW.

This CD brings the best of Eric Clapton into a single easy-listening CD. There are no tracks to skip, every one is worth listening to.

It was a real pleasure to aquire and listen to one of contemporary musics most captivating lyricist, singer/guitarists. From the emotive 'tears in heaven' to the energetic, in your face style of 'its in the way that you use it', Clapton never ceases to disapoint. A combination of good ol' fashioned rock and roll mixed with solefull R & B makes the the Clapton Chronicles a must. Mind you, the chronicles also highlight Claptons mastery as a experienced, insightful story teller. The minidisk version is clean and crisp and truely does justice to this superb artist!

This is a fairly tired album from the blues master; the songs are mush and a bit depressing; hope he never returns to the same ways again

None of Claptons' early,searing work that established him as the monumental artist that he is but nevertheless a thoughtful compilation of Eric maturing in style and content.As always what comes across in this compilation is the mans' emotions and inner feelings about himself and his experiences.The guitar playing is superlative without his early flashiness.I would certainly not regard 'Chronicles' as a best of Eric Clapton but it still stands as a very good selection.Blues content is generally lacking but the recent Polydor release of 'Blues' could be regarded as a companion volume by the Clapton enthusiast.All in all a fine work that encapsulates the more laid-back but nevertheless finely tuned Eric of today.
