Editors’ Notes Clapton had been an electric guitar god for virtually his entire career. Then, in 1992, he went acoustic for an MTV Unplugged session. The resulting set became one of the biggest albums of his career, as well as a GRAMMY® winner for the heartfelt tribute to his late son, "Tears in Heaven." Clapton does have a band backing him here; it plays in an understated, acoustic style, which perfectly complements the album's low-key nature. Aside from "Tears," other highlights include an acoustic version of "Layla," as well as some killer blues playing on "Rollin' and Tumblin'," "Walkin' Blues," and Bo Diddley's "Before You Accuse Me." If you're looking for Clapton to tear your head off with electric blues riffs, this isn't the place to find that. But if you're looking for him to tear your heart out with beautiful playing, you won't be disappointed.
