Eric Clapton deluxe edition

4CD deluxe or single vinyl LP

Eric Clapton‘s eponymous debut album will be expanded and reissued as a four-CD deluxe edition in August.

The album was originally released in August 1970, so this is technically a 51st anniversary edition. The deluxe edition offers three different mixes:

  1. The Eric Clapton Mix
  2. The Delaney Bramlett Mix
  3. The Tom Dowd Mix (The UK Version).

The Tom Dowd Mix is the standard UK version, while the Delaney Bramlett mix was unreleased until 2006 when it appeared on the two-CD deluxe edition. The Eric Clapton mix is released in full for the first time.

The bonus material on CD 4 was mostly included on that same two-CD deluxe although this new edition does include a previously unreleased alternate mix of ‘Comin’ Home’.

The artwork is different for the four-CD set, but a single vinyl LP edition reverts to the familiar front cover. SDE can’t find any confirmation which version the vinyl is, but assumes it’s the standard Tom Dowd mix.

Eric Clapton is reissued on 20 August 2021.
