Remastered From Original Analog Masters!

The 1986 Clapton release, August, was primarily produced by Phil Collins along with Tom Dowd. August was instrumental in Clapton's comeback, featuring a mixture of Collins influenced soul/pop and Clapton's blues/rock sound. The studio band included Nathan East, Greg Phillinganes, Michael Brecker, Randy Brecker, Jon Faddis and Dave Bargeron.

By the time Eric Clapton launched his solo career with the release of his self-titled debut album in mid-1970, he was long established as one of the world's major rock stars due to his group affiliations -- the Yardbirds, John Mayall's Bluesbreakers, Cream, and Blind Faith -- which had demonstrated his claim to being the best rock guitarist of his generation.

Clapton has been inducted into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame as a solo performer and as a member of the bands Yardbirds and Cream. He is the only person ever to be inducted three times. In his 40-year-plus career, Eric Clapton has received a total of 18 Grammys.
