An expanded and remastered version of Eric Clapton’s multi-Grammy winning “Unplugged” album will be released next month.

Eric Clapton Unplugged - Expanded and Remastered

Clapton “Unplugged” was recorded in January 1992 as part of MTV’s popular “Unplugged” series. It features the guitar legend playing great acoustic versions of some of his biggest songs, including a completely new arrangement of “Layla,” “Running On Faith” and “Old Love” from 1989’s “Journeyman” album, and the hit single “Tears In Heaven,” a song he wrote after the tragic passing of his young son Conor the previous year. There are also strong renditions of a number of blues standards, including “San Francisco Bay Blues,” “Before You Accuse Me,” and “Alberta”. The live album, released later that year, was a critical and commercial success with sales of 19 million copies worldwide and six Grammy awards, including Album of the Year.

The real selling point of “Eric Clapton Unplugged – Expanded and Remastered” is the inclusion of more than an hour of unreleased rehearsal footage in which Clapton and the band work on arrangements and run through the following 14 songs:
