No Simon Climie!
Not that I love the guy's overly-slick production values, but I thought he was working on this latest project. Hmm.
I ordered the [link=http://www.ericclapton.com/product/clapton-deluxe-limited-edition-bundle/?cmpid=0810/CLP/golddtc/mainsite/homepage/banner]limited edition[/link] off his official site. 'Cause I'm a freak, that's why.
OMG! A print of Eric?s signature!
I was more interested in the booklet thingy and the (admittedly probably just generic) bonus track, funnily enough.
My favourite music journo, Graham Reid, has written a nice (and fair) article on EC;
And also revisted Beano;
Another track preview;
Tearing Us Apart meets Rollin' and Tumblin'?
Sounds like Doyle's playing slide on that one.
EDIT: Okay, Derek too.
Interviewed by puppets;
lol, I remember seeing that years ago.
"This morning I wanted to lie in bed and have a cup of tea and watch the telly, but I couldn't because I had to get up and come and talk to people like you."

Or one of the fender replicas.
Mojo interview re: new album;
Finally, something he and I can agree upon!
Looking back at Journeyman.
If it hadn't been for the Collins influence, I am of the opinion that Behind the Sun could have been the the best of the 1980's albums.
Still like Journeyman, though, and it's apparently Clapton's favorite of his solo works (probably in part because it was the first album he did completely sober).
Also, [link=http://www.whereseric.com/eric-clapton-news/303-listen-four-new-songs-clapton-wheresericcom]four tracks from the new album[/link] (two of which were already available elsewhere).
The other 2 tracks are good too.
Journeyman was the first new album Eric released after I became a fan, so it holds a special place in my heart. I don't think his subsequent studio albums (not including From the Cradle) have come close. There are some good songs on Pilgrim, though, struggling to be heard over the awful drum programming.
lol I knew about the Deluxe Version and the iTunes track, but a third one? Jeez.
"Peace in our time" 1998 studio sessions.
Interesting. Never heard of it before.
EDIT: lol, it's making me think of Final Fantasy VI for some reason.
It's listed in Marc Roberty's session book, that's where the quote comes from. It was 7-21 May 88 at Townhouse Studio in London, just a week after the Homeboy sessions ended at the same place. He'd also done the Buster score in April.
