Clapton, Eric - Eric Clapton Unplugged (Expanded & Remastered) Eric Clapton was already an acknowledged master of the electric guitar in January 1992 when he traded his signature Stratocaster for an acoustic Martin to record Unplugged. The live album captured the legendary guitarist, backed by a small band, performing acoustic versions of his own songs and several blues standards. Released later that same year, the album was an unqualified blockbuster.

Eric Clapton was already an acknowledged master of the electric guitar in January 1992 when he traded his signature Stratocaster for an acoustic Martin to record Unplugged. The live album captured the legendary guitarist, backed by a small band, performing acoustic versions of his own songs and several blues standards. Released later that same year, the album was an unqualified blockbuster.

Reprise Records celebrates Clapton's electrifying acoustic performances with a new 2-CD collection that includes a remastered version of the original album along with six unreleased outtakes on two CDs.

For the original album's 14 performances, Clapton reinterpreted songs from his rich catalogue, including Layla — completely reimagined as a shuffle — from his time with Derek and the Dominos, Running On Faith and Old Love from 1989's Journeyman, and the hit single Tears In Heaven, a song he wrote after the passing of his young son Conor the previous year. Much of the album showcases blues songs Clapton grew up listening to, like Bo Diddley's Before You Accuse Me, Big Bill Broonzy's Hey Hey, Leadbelly's Alberta and Robert Johnson's Malted Milk.

The second disc of UNPLUGGED: EXPANDED AND REMASTERED includes several songs not on the original album, such as a cover of Big Maceo Merriweather's Worried Life Blues, an alternate take of Walkin' Blues and early versions of Circus and My Father's Eyes — songs that would surface six years later on Clapton's album Pilgrim.
