By on December 20, 2012

 

Slowhand was recorded at Olympic Studios in South West London in May 1977 and was produced by Glyn Johns. Released in November 1977, Slowhand was the most successful album of Clapton’s 70s studio recordings. Slowhand features “Wonderful Tonight,” “Lay Down Sally” and “Cocaine” – songs that are still heard regularly on radio and at Eric Clapton’s live shows. Both the Super Deluxe Edition and Deluxe Edition feature 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, while the Deluxe Edition features 9 tracks from the Hammersmith Odeon concert. Songs featured at the Hammersmith Odeon show include “Tell The Truth,” “Knocking On Heaven’s Door,” “Can’t Find My Way Home,” “Stormy Monday,” “Badge,” “I Shot The Sheriff” and “Layla.”
