Eric Clapton has been in the spotlight for close to fifty years and the portrait of his artistry is a complex one from his early days as a guitar icon to a songwriter of great sensitivity, as well as an interpreter of everything from blues and jazz to rock and country music. He has fashioned albums in many different styles and with many different themes, yet few have the sense of oneness that pervades Slowhand.

Slowhand was recorded at Olympic Studios in South West London in May 1977 and was produced by Glyn Johns. Released in November of 1977, Slowhand was the most successful album of Clapton's '70s studio recordings. It reached No. 2 on the Billboard chart, where it stayed for five weeks, spending a total of seventy-four weeks on the American album chart.

Slowhand features "Wonderful Tonight," "Lay Down Sally" and "Cocaine," songs that are still heard regularly on radio and at Eric Clapton's live shows. The fact that they are still relevant so long after its release is a great recommendation and testimony to its place in Clapton's canon. The album includes cover versions of songs written by some of his favorite songwriters (JJ Cale, John Martyn, Don Williams, Arthur Crudup) along with original compositions.

This 35th Anniversary Super Deluxe Edition also features four Slowhand session outtakes (three of them previously unreleased): "Looking At The Rain," "Alberta," "Greyhound Bus" and "Stars, Strays And Ashtrays."

A week before the Slowhand sessions commenced, the band performed at London's Hammersmith Odeon. The Super Deluxe Edition captures the complete 14 track Hammersmith Odeon, April 27, 1977 concert on two CDs. Songs featured at the Hammersmith Odeon show include "Tell The Truth," "Knockin' On Heaven's Door," "Can't Find My Way Home," "Stormy Monday," "Badge," "I Shot The Sheriff" and "Layla."

Features:
• Slowhand remastered from the original Olympic Studios 1/4" flat analog master tapes, plus four album session outtakes. The unreleased tracks have been newly mixed from the original Olympic Studios 2" analog masters by Kevin Reeves at Sterling Sound.
• Complete Live At The Hammersmith Odeon Concert, April 27, 1977 (2CDs, 14 tracks including 10 previously unreleased). The tracks have been newly mixed from the original 2" analog masters by Kevin Reeves at Sterling Sound.
• Slowhand remastered in 24/96 Hi-Resolution Stereo and 5.1 Surround Sound (audio only DVD)
• Slowhand remastered vinyl LP on 180g heavyweight vinyl
• Including 3 replica tour programs from the time & a book featuring a behind-the-scene look at the recording
