Eric Clapton's Super Deluxe Strength
The fertile year that signalled the spectacular creative resurgence of Eric Clapton will be celebrated with the Super Deluxe release of Give Me Strength: The '74/'75 Recordings, on November 26, 2013.
This exemplary collection features no fewer than 29 bonus tracks (12 of them previously unreleased) from the extraordinary period between April 1974 and June 1975, in which E.C. reclaimed and enhanced his status as one of rock’s most legendary guitarists and singer-songwriters.
Give Me Strength houses expanded, remastered versions of his acclaimed studio albums from the period, 461 Ocean Boulevard and There's One in Every Crowd, the subsequent live set E.C. Was Here (now both remixed and expanded into a double CD), and a disc containing the complete, fabled Freddie King Criteria Studios Session. A sixth Blu-Ray disc adds a newly-available 5.1 Surround Sound mix of 461 and the original quadrophonic mix of both studio releases. MORE HERE
