Slowhand At 70

Earlier this year Eric Clapton performed his 200th concert, with a nostalgic performance at the Royal Albert Hall. In his 70th year he performed many of his classics and to celebrate a new album has gone on pre sale for release in the UK this coming November.

It’s on order!
More recently Mr C was admitted to the Blues Hall of Fame and I have to say that this more recent Blues period has seen him produce some superb music, with some very special collaborations. The new album, highlights some of the best of Mr C and has also been produced as a film, available at a number of select locations and I believe on DVD.

At 70 years the legendry guitarist is now getting on a bit. The opportunity for this collection of LP’s and DVD’s won’t come too often anymore and it does give us the opportunity to see one of the masters of his trade at work. Who knows how many more times the great man will step onto the stage?

The new album will be available in a number of formats including box sets with LP and DVD, and promises much. The preview looks pretty good to me.
