    Amazon in the U.K. and U.S. will sell a digital version with the bonus track "Midnight Hour Blues."

    ESPN.com is [link=http://sports.espn.go.com/espn/thelife/music/news/story?id=5597179]streaming the entire album through the 29th.[/link]



    Not including the bajillion bonus tracks.

    EDIT: This would have made a better album cover.

    Cool - I'm liking most of what I'm hearing. And I also like the existing cover - a nice nod back to Journeyman.

    There should be an expanded version of that on [link=http://www.elsewhere.co.nz/tags/eric+clapton/]Elsewhere[/link] soon.

    I'm (obviously) not one of those Cream era-only fans who thinks that he should break out a '60 Les Paul and crank it up to 11, but I wouldn't have minded at least one epic guitar solo, which he is still quite capable of. That's part of the reason I wanted "Here But I'm Gone"; that produced some good playing from him live.

    Maybe he shreds on one of the bonus tracks? Is 'Watch yourself' the same song as recorded for 24 Nights?

    I imagine that at least a couple of the bonus tracks contain guitar solos, yeah. They're blues standards, after all. :p

    There has been a delay in the manufacturing of the limited edition, so I got a "free" download of the album.


    Jokes on them because my copy already shipped!

    If the Best Buy blu-ray is about the same price as Amazon, I might as well get it.



    AFAIK, Amazon doesn't have its own exclusive version... please no...

    Did you get 'Clapton' undelayed in the end?

    They played the whole album when I was in Barnes & Noble a week or two ago. It took me a few minutes to figure out who it was. Not really someone I'd connect with a New Orleans sound.

    Ooh, nice. I'll have to find the Jools Holland whole show. "See Kings of Leon, that's how a white boy does it"

    And no strats!

    A blogger on FB just posted this (wonderful) clip.

    1969 - sure sounds like Clapton, not Harrison on that "stinging guitar".

    Yeah, that's him, unless George was really feeling like copying his friend that day.

    Well, I suppose it's better than that Hendrix strat.

    Since the actual guitar is long gone (making a Blackie-level of detailed reproduction out of the question), they must just be reproducing the 1960 Les Paul, and surely they've done that before.


    EDIT: Okay, without the nickel covers on the pickups, but still.

    I read that as legendary banjo. I wouldn't put it past Gibson to release a Clapton sig banjo.
