The sound quality on this set is quite good. The masters aren't as compressed (if at all) compared to the reissues of Clapton's back catalog. As a result the CD doesn't sound quite as "loud" (much of that volume on the remasters is due to the dynamic range being squashed and the masters EQ'd taking much of the musical "punch" out of the music) as the Clapton remasters. Detail is very good on most of these tracks and although with some restoration on the Yardbirds tracks at the beginning because of the fragile nature of the masters they were pulled from. Overall, Bill Levenson and his team did a terrific job here.
This is a terrific set with a nice mix of live material, songs that Clapton performed on ("Comin' Home") and recorded as a solo artist. While his guitar didn't blaze quite as hard on the studio recordings for many ofhis solo recordings, this was a phase in Clapton's development where he was developing and focusing on his singing as much (if not more)than focusing on his guitar playing.Read more ›
For Eric Clapton fans, this is a fabulous collection of music spanning his work from the Yardbirds deep into the 1980's with some really worth hearing outtakes and unreleased cuts.
BOTTOM LINE: If you're not too concerned about sound quality, here's one fantastic dose of Eric Clapton's material. The CD box inserts and the booklet are loaded with great background information, but being one of the first big Box Set compilations, its use of the digital medium is far from acceptable standards of today.
TRUE RATING: Material: 5 stars ***** Audio Quality: 2 stars **
