Eric Clapton is the debut solo studio album by British rock musician Eric Clapton, released in August 1970 under Atco and Polydor Records. After being successful with bands including The Yardbirds, John Mayall & the Bluesbreakers, Cream and Blind Faith, Clapton recorded an album under his own name in late 1969 and early 1970. The album cover shows Clapton sitting in a room which is going to be decorated and in which a ladder, a chair and some carpets are placed.
Ten years after his first all-blues album, From the Cradle, Eric Clapton released Me and Mr. Johnson, an album-length tribute to his hero, the legendary bluesman Robert Johnson. Not that this is the first time Clapton has paid tribute to Johnson
Eric Patrick Clapton was born on 30 March 1945 in his grandparents’ home at 1 The Green, Ripley, Surrey, England. Eric’s last name comes from Rose’s first husband and Pat’s father, Reginald Cecil Clapton (d. 1933). Eric’s mother, Pat, eventually married and moved to Canada and Germany as her husband, Frank MacDonald, continued his military career. They had two girls and a boy.
Robert Johnson, Willie Dixon and Mississippi Fred McDowell, to name just three, told real-life stories in hot, tight packages of poetic vernacular and hard-won joy. Clapton and Aerosmith take different routes back to blues school on these covers albums, but they do so with mutual fealty and honest delight. Johnson has been Clapton’s steady rollin’ muse since 1966, when he cut Johnson’s Ramblin’ on My Mind with John Mayall. That song is not among the fourteen Clapton covers on his all-Johnson program; nor is Crossroads, which he turned into high-speed-guitar spectacle with Cream
It’s surprising that this collection of Robert Johnson covers is only Clapton’s second all-blues LP as a solo artist in more than 30 years. Since hitting paydirt down at the Crossroads, he’s periodically raided the Johnson songbook, recording Ramblin’ On My Mind, I’m A Steady Rollin’ Man, Malted Milk, Walkin’ Blues and Kind Hearted Woman Blues at various times. An entire album of Johnson songs was surely a Grammy-winner waiting to happen.
The Complete Recordings is a compilation album by American blues musician Robert Johnson, released August 28, 1990 on Columbia Records. The album's recordings were recorded in two sessions in Dallas and San Antonio, Texas for the American Record Company (ARC) during 1936 and 1937. Most of the songs were first released on 78rpm records in 1937. The Complete Recordings contains every recording Johnson is known to have made, with the exception of an alternate take of "Travelling Riverside Blues".
