  • Producers include: Rob Cavallo, Babyface, Eric Clapton, Russ Titleman, Tom Dowd.
  • Engineers: Allen Sides, Brad Gilderman, Alan Douglas.
  • This compilation of songs by blues guitarist, Eric Clapton, features such classics as "Layla" and "Wonderful Tonight."
  • Australian edition contains two extra songs.
  • CD contains 2 bonus tracks.
  • It is hard to effectively document in one collection the career of an artist who is as much a vital part of popular music history today as when he reluctantly ventured into a solo career in 1970. CLAPTON CHRONICLES offers an interesting mix of Slowhand's soundtrack-ready acoustic ballads from the '90s and his electric guitar-driven pop-blues from the '80s.
  • "My Father's Eyes" is an emotionally uplifting song about a man's search for his identity through his relationship with his father. "Tears in Heaven," the bittersweet eulogy to Clapton's son, may be his most timeless composition and performance. His groundbreaking "MTV Unplugged" performance produced a new arrangement of his plea to Patti Harrison, "Layla." This approach hinted at a new direction for Eric Clapton's music. Clapton's roots break through on the down-and-dirty Delta blues-tinged "Before You Accuse Me." He stands among very few who have carried their musical heart with them throughout their career and have stayed true to it.

Professional Reviews
Q (12/99, p.156) - 3 stars out of 5 - "...There are 2 new songs here...to entice the completists....with big-shot Babyface, [Clapton] gracefully updates his trademark sound. And if playing the blues is about expressing pain, then 'Tears In Heaven'...is the genuine article."

Mojo (Publisher) (11/99, p.120) - "...the time of craftsmanlike albums and Albert Hall residencies, of quietly expensive suits and unassuming legendhood.....stuff to admire and even enjoy....a slow, measured transition from rage to resignation."

Clapton is a hero! To play guitar so brilliantly and in respect to how guitar is supposed to be incorporated into music - as an instrument no more special than the others (interdependant)... That I really respect.

And so this greatest hits album really shows how Clapton uses the guitar in ways it's supposed to be used to contribute to the music. The album is not that wonderful, but it has that soulful blues in it, with simple lyrics (as blues is!).
