Brixton

Brixton Wednesdays on Wax: Cream & Eric Clapton

  • Posted on: September 19, 2012

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”.

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.
