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

Editorial Reviews

You might remember this 1991 crime thriller starring Jennifer Jason Leigh, but we remember the score written and performed by Eric Clapton himself! Includes the tragic hit Tears of Heaven , Willie's Dixon's Don't Know Which Way to Go featuring Buddy Guy on vocals, and more intensely emotional blues.

4.0 out of 5 stars A Score By Clapton July 27, 2001
Format:Audio CD
Eric Clapton had never provided the score to a film, but he finally jumped into the film area with the soundtrack to Rush. The movie chronicles the tale of two undercover narcotic offices who in the course of their jobs become heroin addicts themselves. The album is made up of mostly instrumentals that has a dark and mellow nature that underscores the decent into drug addicted hell the two cops spiral into. Mr. Clapton himself was facing tragedy as he was recording the album, his four year old son Conner, was killed when he accidentally fell out of a window. To memorialize his son, he wrote and recorded one of most haunting and elegant songs ever written about the loss of loved one, "Tears In Heaven". The song would go on to bigger fame in it's Unplugged version, but the studio version is equally beautiful and worth buying the album for alone.

3.0 out of 5 stars Some good tracks..... November 14, 2000
Format:Audio CD
Generally, the CD is very mellow and relaxing. 7 of the tracks are instrumental pieces, and 3 have vocals. Clapton's guitar is articulate and sounds great. The digital recording and mastering are very good and the CD has great sound. Like alot of soundtracks, the pieces tend to wander without the accompanying video, but this one isn't too bad. It is great music to doze in and out of during an afternoon rain! Some of the better tracks are in the sample listening:
1. New Recruit
4. Kristen and Jim
5. Preludin Fugue (the sample omits the best part)

Enjoy!

5.0 out of 5 stars Clapton is God! September 28, 2003
By Morton
Format:Audio CD
Clapton is God! That was all I could say after listening to this. I mean his playing here is just down right amazing as always, but I wasnt expecting much when I listend to this, I just thought it was gonna be 'Tears In Heaven' and thats it. Boy, was I wrong or what? This is a mostly instumental album, except for the last three songs. But it is never boring, and it will never-not amaze you. Clapton plays with such emotion, I havent heard Clapton play with this much emotion since Derek And The Dominos were together 30 years ago. Claptons voice sounds great here. Now on to 'Tears In Heaven' the acoustic song. This is without a doubt the best song on the album in in the top 5 Clapton songs of all time! Its about him losing his kid who fell from like a 2 story window, so there is a lot of emotion behind it. I feel a close attraction to this song because around the time this came out my older sister had died, and my mom loved Clapton so she connected with this song and it makes me and her both stop and think every time we here it. This is a five star album any way you look at it!

5.0 out of 5 stars one of EC's best May 23, 2003
Format:Audio CD
Of the 23 EC solo CDs I own, I'd rank this in the top 5. Tears
in Heaven is the most well known song, but the rest of the
material is quite good. Because it is a soundtrack, there is
more a feel of a collection of songs than on some albums which
are crafted as a single entity. For the same reason, many of
the songs are instrumental, but some are nearly as powerful
musically as are the lyrics of Tears in Heaven. Because the
movie concerns police officers who become addicted themselves,
some of the music has druggy overtones, e.g. Preludin Fugue.
Of his other material, the mood this CD elicits reminds me
most of the title track to Another Ticket. If you like EC's
bluesier material, you'll like this. Buddy Guy plays guitar and
sings on Don't Know Which Way To Go.The CD is worthwhile
entirely on its own, but the movie is worth seeing as well.

5.0 out of 5 stars Rush: A Hidden Gem February 18, 2007
By Colonel
Format:Audio CD
Although the movie for which this is a soundtrack is ancient by Hollywood standards, the music remains alive and as relevent as when it was created. For Clapton fans this is a must-addition to your collection. Keep in mind that movie music is, by definition, incidental, and you will find some forgiveness in the occaisional musical non-sequiter. Even with that disclaimer, however, this is Clapton in a rich blues genere. If you like Eric Clapton, you must buy this disk!

I love this music! Limited words, yet lots of feelings. I haven't seen the movie but I have 4 kids. When my husband puts on this CD, I lite the candles and we slip off to a wonderful place with this music. It's Eric Clapton without all the talk.

4.0 out of 5 stars Eric Clapton-instrumental March 25, 2008
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
My passion is guitar playing by the most accomplished. Clapton is one of the all time best. His voice is good, but I favor his guitar solos. I was inspired by the Crossroads Festival DVD's. This album is a great addition to enjoying his talent.Blues Guitar Greats

The music was better in the film. Good acting. The movie was very drug themed but that's what made it a movie if you're into that.

5.0 out of 5 stars It's Eric Clapton. Nuff said.
The only glitch in this album is the peppy song right in the middle of it. The rest is slow, sleazy, sexy.
