Comning on June 24th is the long-awaited Eric Clapton documentary and soundtrack to Nothing But The Blues. The set features 17 previously unreleased tracks recorded during "Slowhand's" tour behind his Grammy-winning 1994 blues collection, From The Cradle. The critically acclaimed 1995 documentary has gotten a 4K upgrade with newly remixed audio.
The collection is set for release in multiple formats, including a "Super Deluxe Limited Edition" boxed set, CD, Blu-Ray, DVD, and digitally.
Eric Clapton has long cited blues legend Robert Johnson as one of his his biggest musical influences. Clapton told us he knows what he'd say if he had the chance to meet him: ["'Thank you!' (laughs) Or, 'Can you show me how to do that? What tuning?' I mean, if I knew I was gonna meet him, I would probably sit down and write out a questionnaire, 'cause there are some things that it'd be crazy not to ask him. At the same time, I'd probably banish the whole thing and just say 'Thank you,' and be as humble as possible, 'cause that's often the nicest thing to do."] SOUNDCUE (:19 OC: . . . thing to do)
