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 !
