Entertaining 'Anthology' Of Clapton
10 January 2007 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

These are videos of the hits of both Eric Clapton and some of the early bands he was in such as "The Yardbirds" and "Cream." It guess you could call this an "anthology" as it shows the famous guitarist-singer from the early '60s through the '80s when this tape was made. Whatever the era, it's simply good rock 'n roll music.

Most tunes, even the very early stuff in which I didn't recognize the ultra-young, thin and beardless Clapton, are still good to hear and his guitar work has always been a pleasure. With each video, Clapton's appearance really changes.

When the video switches to color and to stereo, it really picks up steam. "Layla," "Cocaine," "Forever Man," and a "Tearing Us Apart" were the highlights for me. The latter was a duet with Tina Turner. "Layla" is uniquely done in that they mix several concert tapings into the song, but keep it cohesive.

The last two songs aren't much so I end it with that duet with Turner. It makes the video end on a high note.
