The Complete Clapton Is Being Re-Released In 4LP Box

Back in 2007, Reprise had released a 2CD, 36-track Eric Clapton collection called The Complete Clapton. It contained a swarm of tracks from every facet of his career trajectory including solo, Blind Faith, and Cream.

Now that the vinyl resurgence has hit and shows little slow down, this is a title that is now needing to be replenished for that market. Using all tracks, this vinyl edition will spread over 4 LPs, eight sides. If you didn’t get one the first time around, here is a rare opportunity to fix that.

On March 2, watch for this 4LP Box. If you’re a vinyl fan and are pleased to find this bit of news, be prepared.

3CD/1BD Deluxe Edition Of Fresh Cream by Cream Planned For January

cream-fresh-cream-coverConsidered one of the great Rock and Roll albums in release, Fresh Cream certainly rocked! It was the 1966 debut release of the newly formed super group, Cream, which boasted the instruments of Eric Clapton, Ginger Baker, and Jack Bruce. Cream would go on to create the extraordinary Disraeli Gears (1967) that contained “Strange Brew”, and “Sunshine Of Your Love”. That was followed by Wheels Of Fire (1968) with “White Room”, and Goodbye (1969). Over the years, these classic albums have been remastered and reissued with extras.

On January 27, watch for a 4disc definitive edition of Fresh Cream. It will be bolstered by a sizable book no doubt stuffed to capacity with history, photos, labels shots, liner notes, essays, memorabilia, and more. This is one to have in your library if you’re a Cream fan.

On the three CDs, there will be the UK edition of the mono original along with outtakes, singles, and EPs, he original album in Stereo with outtakes, remixes and alternate versions of tracks, and a CD of early versions, demos, and BBC recordings. The fourth disc is a Blu-ray Audio with 96kHz/24-bit of both the US Mono and Stereo mixes plus bonus tracks.

There will be an update with actual tracks.
