by Peter Wendel
We value your input so please make comments at the end of this post.

Eric Clapton played through a whirlwind of top-notch bands – like The Yardbirds, John Mayall’s Bluesbreakers, Cream and Blind Faith – before settling into a brilliant solo career as the psychedelic ’60s came to a reluctant close.

The second installment of the ClaptonTest™ wades into the artist’s solo work – focusing on classic cuts from his most beloved albums like his self-titled debut (1970), 461 Ocean Boulevard (1974), Slowhand (1977) and Backless (1978).
