Eric Clapton / The Definitive 24 Nights CD, Vinyl, Box Set, Blu-ray, DVD
Eric Clapton’s reputation has taken a bit of a battering in recent years, but back in 1991 he could do little wrong as this groundbreaking run of 24 concerts at London’s Royal Albert Hall demonstrates. Each night featured him performing a career-spanning set with one of three lineups – a rock band, a blues band, or an orchestra conducted by Michael Kamen. This reissue offers EIGHT physical formats including 8LP vinyl and 6CD box sets both of which come with three blu-rays.
