The ClaptonTest™ Vol. 2 – His Solo Work

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).

You’ll be challenged to properly identify songs by listening to brief isolated audio segments. There are both instrumental and vocal passages in here – so stay alert, folks.

Now let’s see how well you really know Clapton’s catalog. Good luck!
