Brixton Wednesdays on Wax: Cream & Eric Clapton
This week we decided post some classics from the only artist to be inducted to the Rock & Roll Hall Of Fame, Eric Clapton.
Cream - Disraeli Gears
Cream’s breakthrough to American fame Disraeli Gears took only 3 1/2 days to record, which is pretty impressive considering the length of the album (33:39). Although they only lasted 2 years, they managed to record some of the most pivotal songs of their time and landed themselves a spot in the Rock & Roll Hall Of Fame in 1993. Here’s the gritty chart-topping “Strange Brew” and the harmonic “World Of Pain”.
“World Of Pain”
Eric Clapton - 461 Ocean Blvd
This album is the second studio album recorded as a solo artist. This might be our favorite offering from the Blues-Rock legend, mostly because of his incredible ability to play so many different styles of songs, but always keeping that integral signature blues sound. Here’s a couple favorites.
“Willie & The Hand Jive”
