Exclusive Unreleased Eric Clapton Track


Exciting news for those of you who are fans of God - and no, we don't mean the deity upstairs, but the one we have on earth; that is: Mr Eric Clapton.

'Slowhand' is, quite simply, one the greatest guitar players and songwriters of all time and a brand new box set, Give Me Strength: The '73/'75 Recordings, is being released to celebrate one of his most fertile eras as a musician during which he returned from a quiet period, to reclaim his spot in the premier league of rockstars.

The set contains both of his acclaimed albums from the era, 461 Ocean Boulevard (including the number 1 smash I Shot The Sheriff) and There's One In Every Crowd, together with a live set, E.C. Was Here and the complete Freddie King Criteria Studios Session and features no fewer than 29 bonus tracks, including previously unreleased recordings.

We are extremely excited to share one of those with you, as you can listen exclusively here to Fools Like Me, a Jerry Lee Lewis cover taken from the set and only available to listen to here until the release of the box set. The track showcases Eric at his bluesy best, transporting you right back into the studio with him and his fellow musicians.

So what are you waiting for? Press play below and listen to the great man in action.

Give Me Strength: The '73/'75 Recordings is released on 9th December. Preorder now from Amazon: Boxset, 2xCD Version, 3xLP Version
