Eric Clapton: Slowhand – [Record 69]
Slowhand is the fifth studio album by English recording artist Eric Clapton, released in November 1977 by RSO Records. The album was titled after Clapton’s nickname, which was given to him by Giorgio Gomelsky. The album peaked at number two on the US Billboard 200, and produced three hit singles on the Hot 100: “Lay Down Sally”, “Wonderful Tonight” and “Cocaine”.
In 2003, Slowhand was ranked number 325 on Rolling Stone’s list of The 500 Greatest Albums of All Time.
In 2012, a remastered two-CD 35th anniversary “deluxe edition” of Slowhand was released. The first disc consists of the remastered album, with additional bonus tracks and studio jam sessions. The second disc features a previously unreleased live concert, recorded in April 1977 at the Hammersmith Odeon; although the concert is of the same era as the Slowhand sessions, it was performed prior to the album’s recording and release, and so does not include any of the album’s tracks
