Editorial Reviews

While few would argue that Eric Clapton is one of the finest guitarists of all time, it is sometimes forgotten just how pivotal, influential and downright startling this man was during the 1960s. And while, throughout the 70s, 80s, 90s and 00s, Clapton has remained a musician and songwriter of rare ability with moments of glory resplendent on album after album it was during the decade in which he emerged that his awesome skills were used most creatively. As an early member of the Yardbirds, a crucial part of the Bluesbreakers, a founder member of Cream and the one who mattered most in the short lived Blind Faith, EC, to many, really was a deity. In this extraordinary documentary, his life and career throughout these crucial ten years is put under the microscope, and with the help of archive interviews with the man himself, exclusive contributions from friends, band mates and colleagues, rare and classic performance footage, seldom seen photographs, location and period archive plus a host of other features, the story in question is told in a manner it never has been before. Includes brand new interviews with musicians and performers; John Mayall, Paul Jones, Neil Innes, Tom McGuiness, Chris Dreja, Top Topham, Ben Palmer, Dave Kelly and Cream producer Bill Halverson, plus expert insight from Cream biographer Chris Welch, Yardbirds biographer Alan Clayson and Uncut magazine s contributing editor, Nigel Williamson.

I didn't expect much from this dvd featuring Eric Clapton's early career with several different bands, as most of these Review dvd's never feature one full song and mostly interview people who never even knew or played with the bands, but this Review dvd both surprised and provided me with a real treat!

The dvd starts out with some great information and photos of the little boy Eric born in Ripley, England on March 30, 1945 with his parents who were really his grandparents and his sister who was 15 years older than him, who was really his Mother. Eric's early background, like most great guitarists, is obviously a gift he was born with and nurtured with the great art schools England provided after WWII for their students. For a dvd not authorized by Eric Clapton, the rare photos, clips, performance clips and great information are really quite superb. Then it quickly becomes obvious why this dvd is so superb.

This close look at Eric Clapton's early years contains archive interviews of Eric himself, commentaries from his friends, band mates and colleagues, sixties performance clips and photos that have been rarely or never seen before and period archive material from the sixties that take you back into that time period. Hearing great stories from Alan Clayson author of The Yardbirds, Ben Palmer pianist from Eric's earlist band The Roosters, Bill Halverson Cream producer, Chris Dreja Yardbirds guitarist, Chris Welch Cream journalist, Dave Kelly blues guitarist, John Mayall blues guitarist and bandleader, Neil Innes musician and songwriter, Nigel Williamson Uncut's editor, Paul Jones vocalist for Manfred Mann, Tom McGuiness guitarist from Manfred Mann, Top Topham earliest Yardbirds guitarist and many more.

5.0 out of 5 stars Amazingly complete history November 1, 2010
Format:DVD|Verified Purchase
Incredible documentary of early Clapton. I thought I had read or seen about all there was to know about early EC. WRONG.
Interviews with Yardbirds and other early London musicians who were there when Clapton was just starting out.
If you grew up a major Clapton fan like me, you will watch this over and over. Well worth the small price of the DVD.

4.0 out of 5 stars 60's Clapton January 2, 2011
Format:DVD|Verified Purchase
From his beginnings up to Blind Faith. Documentary with good concert footage. It focuses on the early Clapton with bands as early as The Roosters.the Yardbirds.

It starts with little boy Eric born in England and each step along the way. The DVD has some rare photos, clips, performance clips and great information making this a great DVD.

Early years with archived Clapton interviews. Commnetaries from frineds and ex bandmates about the young Clapton.

It is a two hour DVD and does not drag making it well worth it!

1.0 out of 5 stars Buyer beware!!! January 14, 2011
Format:DVD|Verified Purchase
I've returned two copies of this dvd to Amazon so far. The first copy "froze" at about the 60 minute mark and the replacement that I received did the same thing at the 80 minute mark. I'm not taking any more chances.
