Eric Clapton - Unplugged (1992)

Fri Sep 30, 2011 7:33 pm

Unplugged is a live album by Eric Clapton released in 1992. It was recorded live in England for the MTV Unplugged series and includes both the hit single "Tears in Heaven" and a heavily reworked acoustic version of "Layla". Clapton earned six Grammy Awards for the album including Record of the Year, Album of the Year, Song of the Year, Best Male Pop Vocal Performance, Best Rock Male Vocal Performance and Best Rock Song. "Tears in Heaven" earned three of the six awards. The album reached number one on the Billboard 200, and has been certified Diamond by the RIAA for selling over 10 million copies in the United States.

It is nothing short of epic. Anybody that is a fan of music, anything remotely related to rock, r&b and even country and folk will adore this. Stripped down, pure, live magic from a genius. Here are just some of the highlights.

My favourite track is "Nobody Knows You When You're Down and Out". Enough talkin', just listen, words cannot do it justice.

Tears In Heaven

Nobody Know's You When You're Down and Out

Yeah, this is absolutely one of the finest moments of MTV Unplugged -- Clapton was brilliant here, and it's definately one of his own career high-water marks. There's not a lesser-track or inferior performance in the entire set, and it sure as hell tops Tesla's Five Man Acoustic Jam . . .
