Eric Clapton – Slowhand 35th Anniversary (180g Vinyl LP)
The original album, remastered from the original analog master tape
35th anniversary release!
“…Universal went to Metropolis Mastering in London and engaged Miles Showell to half speed master the LP, and engaged pressing plant Quality Record (Pressings) in the U.S. to press the LP on 200 gram vinyl. … It doesn’t get much better than this when it comes to classic rock reissues. Bravo to Chad Kassem for his perfect pressing and mastering engineer Showell for the fine half speed master.” Recording = 10/10; Music = 9/10 — Dennis D. Davis, Hi-Fi +, Issue 97
Eric Clapton has been in the spotlight for close on 50 years and the portrait of his artistry is a complex one – from his early days as a guitar icon to a songwriter of great sensitivity, as well as an interpreter of everything from blues and jazz to rock and country music. He has fashioned albums in many different styles and with many different themes, yet few have the sense of oneness that pervades Slowhand.
Slowhand features “Wonderful Tonight,” “Lay Down Sally” and “Cocaine” – songs that are still heard regularly on radio and at Eric Clapton’s live shows. So long after its release is a great recommendation and testimony to its place in Clapton’s canon. The album includes cover versions of songs written by some of his favorite songwriters (JJ Cale, John Martyn, Don Williams, Arthur Crudup) along with original compositions by Eric Clapton.
