Biography

Eric Clapton has often stated that JJ Cale is one of the single most important figures in rock history, a sentiment echoed by many of his fellow musicians. Cale’s influence on Clapton was profound, and his influence on many more of today’s artists cannot be overstated. To honor JJ’s legacy, a year after his passing, Clapton gathered a group of like-minded friends and ... Read more in Amazon's Eric Clapton Store

5.0 out of 5 stars EC's Best Solo Album Gets the Royal Treatment November 22, 2004
Format:Audio CD
After all these years, I still believe that "461 Ocean Boulevard" is Clapton's best solo album. I will readily admit I'm not such a big fan of the more recent blues albums such as "Me and Mr. Johnson", which I thought was rather dull, as well intentioned as it was. But I digress.

"461 Ocean Boulevard - Deluxe Edition" has grown from the original 40 min. album to an exquisite 2CD spread (26 tracks, 142 min.), and quite comfortably at that. CD1 (15 tracks, 69 min.) brings of course the original 10 tracks, and they still sparkle today as they did 30 years ago. The remastered sound is fantastic. It has of course the hits "I Shot the Sheriff", "Willie and the Hand Jive", and "Motherless Children" (all from the original Side 1), but there really are no weak songs here. Other classics include "Let It Grow", the pensive "I Can't Hold Out", and the album closer "Mainline Florida". The 5 bonus tracks are session out-takes from the album recordings, they have appeared elsewhere before on various compilations such as "Crossroads", but are grouped together here for the first time. My fave of them is "Meet Me (At the Bottom)", a mostly instrumental jam session. CD2 (11 tracks, 73 min.) is a live album, recorded in London at the end of the 461 Ocean Blvd tour in December, 1974. After the announcer's "Well Ladies and Gentlemen, this is it, the last show of the tour, please welcome Mr. Eric Clapton and his band!", we're in for a treat. Only 3 of the 11 tracks have appeared before on the Crossroads compilations. The highlights are many, including "Let It Grow", the Steve Winwood cover "Can't Find My Way Home", a rousing "Tell the Truth", the Jimi Hendrickx cover "Little Wing", and the closer "Let It Rain", with at the end EC simply saying "bye bye, thank you" to an elated audience.

5.0 out of 5 stars DTS - 461 Ocean Boulevard is Great !!!! September 3, 1999
By A Customer
Format:DVD Audio
I have just finished listening to the DTS 5.1 mix of Eric Clapton's 461 Ocean Boulevard. This mix actually puts you in the middle of the music and makes you feel as if you are in the studio with the musicians. This is a fine album from Clapton, but the best thing is the 5.1 remastering. I could hear more depth on this version of the CD than I've ever heard before. You can't go wrong with this CD, a great album for the first time Clapton buyer or those just venturing into the wonderful world of DTS.

5.0 out of 5 stars This Address has Clapton's Best Studio album August 2, 2000
Format:DVD Audio
Eric Clapton's solo career has been a series of ups and downs. Among the former, none is better than "461 Ocean Boulevard," which is one of the best rock albums of the 1970s. The big hits were the ace covers of Bob Marley's "I Shot the Sheriff" and Johnny Otis's "Willy and the Hand Jive." Other classic songs include "Motherless Children," "Get Ready," "Let it Grow" and the rockin' "Mainline Florida." This is not Clapton's most jamming album, but it features the strongest and most diverse set of songs he ever recorded. His backing band is first rate as well. Overall, a must have for Clapton fans as well as fans of 70s rock.

4.0 out of 5 stars SACD review November 22, 2004
Format:Audio CD
The SACD version of "461 Ocean Boulevard" does sound much better than the CD version. With the surround mix, the separation of the music and the broader soundstage really helps compared to the CD.

However, the surround mix itself is inconsistent. It seems like they were going for an immersive sound stage, but the results are hit and miss.

Right from the start, 'Motherless Children' starts off sounding like the left/right channels are just duplicated in the surrounds, with even the main drum track in the surrounds too. Then in the middle of the song the surrounds contain only what sound like the 3rd and 4th guitar parts. Not sure what happened.

Other songs sound better from a surround standpoint, especially 'Willie and the Hand Jive' and 'Let it Grow,' but everything else in between sounds uninspired.

The most disappointing of all is 'Mainline Florida.' With it's layered guitar parts and keyboards, it should have been the best. But everything sounds shoved together in the front channels with the surrounds being an afterthought.

The extra tracks on the SACD deserve mention, because all three are great songs. The last one, 'Meet Me (Down at the Bottom),' also rates as one of the highlights of the disc from a surround presentation standpoint.

5.0 out of 5 stars A real gem November 11, 2004
Format:Audio CD
This album brings back memories. I remember first hearing "I shot the sheriff" in a bar and immediately thinking that EC had "sold out" by moving beyond his 'guitar hero" image. How wrong I was!! This is a great album that easily has worn the test of time. The band is arguably Clapton's best of his solo units (and there IS plenty of great guitar work). It is, in a way, a cross between the D&TD album and his first solo effort. During ECs tenure in Blind Faith, he became passionately interested in the music of the Band. This influence is evident here in the ensemble playing, shared vocal chores, economical guitar playing and the deadened drum sounds. However, ECs strong musical personality makes the album his own. Great original songwriting and an excellent choice of covers. The live material is a wonderful treat. It is great to hear those renditions finally on a legit release. For those of you interested, THIS IS WHERE CLAPTON'S SOLO CAREER REALLY BEGINS TO COOK. Long may he live!!!!
