**** This Review is for the 2CD DELUXE EDITION ****

EC fans will have seen "461 Ocean Boulevard" re-issued just one too many times in the last 8 years on a plethora of formats - and here it comes again. But this time I'd argue you should sit up and take notice because this vaults trawl is a superb reissue - and in a festive season of over-priced and dubious Deluxe Editions - a star in a reasonably price car.

Firstly - there are two versions of "Give Me Strength..." this 2CD DELUXE EDITION which is called "Give Me Strength: The '74/'75 Studio Recordings" - and a 5CD/1DVD SUPER DELUXE EDITION Book Set which drops the word 'Studio' in its title because it includes lots of live stuff (the "EC Was Here" album and more). Both are released Monday 9 December 2013.

This review is for the 2CD edition - Universal/Polydor 0602537618583 breaks down as follows...

Disc 1 "461 Ocean Boulevard Expanded Version" (79:31 minutes):
1. Motherless Children
2. Give Me Strength
3. Willie And The Hand Jive
4. Get Ready
5. I Shot The Sheriff
6. I Can't Hold Out
7. Please Be With Me
8. Let It Grow
9. Steady Rollin' Man
10. Mainline Florida
Tracks 1 to 10 are the vinyl album "461 Ocean Boulevard" issued July 1974 in the UK on RSO Records 2479 118 and SO 4801 in the USA.

Since I am a huge Clapton fan and always has been, I can of course only love this great collection. 461 Ocean Boulevard was a wonderful return by the man himself, and I love almost all numbers on that record. Well, I have heard most of it before except the Freddie King cd, and have the records on vinyl, but with bonus numbers, outtakes, previous unreleased numbers and more, I still find this box fully worth the money. The blue-ray I can play on my blue-ray player, but I don't have speakers and stuff for quadrophonia, surround sound or whatever, so I would have preferred a biographic film from the sessions or about that period of Clapton's life. In the book there are some nice photographs and a short but well written text about the recording sessions and Clapton. But I actually still miss some kind of real biographic movie-story about Clapton and his time from the start till today, maybe one day...

This is just a review of the 2 disc version

461 Ocean Boulevard was re-mastered and released a few years ago in a Deluxe format and there's isn't too much new here to attract the buyer. There's One in Every Crowd needed a good remastering as the versoin form some time ago had no bass and was very top end. This version sounds great, the additional tracks are welcome and the album itself seems a lot better than I remembered it.

I picked this up for around 10.50 and at that price was well worthwhile

This box covers most of Eric Clapton's studio work in 1974 to 1975. The sound is stunning, it has a very natural sound, doesn't seem overly compressed as with the Derek & The Dominos Layla CDs re-master had 4 years ago. There are little unreleased tracks here however the few that are included are great. The unreleased song 'Burial' is a surprise hearing Eric trying to sound like Bob Marley. The other nice surprise is the blues jams with Freddie King are fantastic!
The booklet is nothing special for me, nothing exciting to read unfortunately, but does have a good description of the music enclosed on the discs.
The BluRay took a long time to load up but when it finally did I enjoyed the 5.1 mix of Eric's 1974 recordings but I didn't get the same feeling with the Quad mixes.
The 2 'Live' CDs that have the title EC Was Here is a full concert that contains songs mostly available on several EC box sets. These tracks are remixed and have an improved sound from the previously available versions.

Overall this is a good collection of Eric Claptons career from 1974 to 1975 that has a few extras to sweeten the cost of this set.

Nicely packaged set of Clapton albums, just like the originals. A good pressing (On the whole, with a few exceptions vinyls are a lot better that they used to be), nice flat copies with a gloss finish. All albums are crackle free and a joy to listen to.

This has 461 Ocean Boulevard (one of his best albums) and There's One in Every Crowd (not one of his best albums) and outtakes. To be honest, the deluxe version of 461 Ocean Boulevard and a standard There's One in Every Crowd is a better bet than this. It does have the single of Knockin' on Heaven's Door (which is available elsewhere, but not that common a track).

The original 461 Ocean Boulevard gets eight additional songs, but for me, only the original tracks I Shot The Sheriff and Let It Grow are must haves.
Having said that CD 1 runs to 79 minutes, so there's good value for money.
The original There's One In Every Crowd has seven additional songs, including the fantastic non-album single release Knockin' On Heaven's Door and it's B side Someone Like You.
This album is top class from start to finish with special mentions for We've been Told (Jesus Coming Soon), Swing Low Sweet Chariot, The Sky Is Crying, Better Make It Through Today, Pretty Blue Eyes and Opposites.
CD 2 totals 71 minutes and with both discs being remastered to a high standard, this is a double album I will enjoy many times over.
