Eric Clapton From The Cradle on 180g 2LP

1995 Grammy Award Winner for Best Traditional Blues Album

Cut from the Original Masters by Chris Bellman at Bernie Grundman Mastering

After reaching new heights in 1992 with his massively successful live Unplugged album, Eric Clapton returned to his blues roots with the release of From The Cradle in 1994, a Grammy award winning tribute to his musical heroes with 16 cover versions of blues warhorses from the likes of Willie Dixon, Freddie King, Muddy Waters, Elmore James, Leroy Carr and Lowell Fulson. Clapton's long love affair with the blues is at the heart and soul of From The Cradle and the deep influence and emotional impact it's had on his music is exorcised in every last note here. 

"Nothing but my soul to save from the cradle to the grave. And it was one of those things, you wake up in the middle of the night and run downstairs and write it down. I didn't know what it meant. And I thought, well, I would abbreviate it, the front, From The Cradle, the title. What it means I think is that this music I'm making here has been my motivation. It's the thing I've turned to, the thing that has given me inspiration and relief, in all of the trials and tribulations of my life. I've always had this incredibly secure place to go...with that, with the blues. And this is the first testament to that, that I've ever made, really, on my own." - Eric Clapton
