Eric Clapton's Unplugged was responsible for making acoustic-based music, and "unplugged" albums in particular, a hot trend in the early ‘90s. Clapton's concert was not only one of the finest Unplugged episodes, but was also some of the most genuine, heartfelt music the guitarist has ever committed to tape. The album sold more than 10 million copies in the U.S. and won several Grammy Awards, including "Album Of The Year."
"We just took this classic Clapton album for a spin... WOW!!! The sound was phenomenal, tight deep bass, great depth of soundstage, smooth rich tone and spine tingling dynamics! There is a reason WEA cut this album on Four Full Sides just like their killer reissue of Brothers in Arms!" - Bob Bantz, President Elusive Disc, Inc.
By the time Eric Clapton launched his solo career with the release of his self-titled debut album in mid-1970, he was long established as one of the world's major rock stars due to his group affiliations -- the Yardbirds, John Mayall's Bluesbreakers, Cream, and Blind Faith -- which had demonstrated his claim to being the best rock guitarist of his generation.
Clapton has been inducted into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame as a solo performer and as a member of the bands Yardbirds and Cream. He is the only person ever to be inducted three times. In his 40-year-plus career, Eric Clapton has received a total of 18 Grammys.
