Eric Clapton’s Debut Album Celebrates 50 Years With Forthcoming Reissue

Eric Clapton will celebrate the 50th anniversary of his 1970 self-titled debut solo with the release of a four-CD set on Aug. 20.

The collection–which includes the top 20 hit “After Midnight” (penned by J.J. Cole)– features three different mixes of the album: one by the record’s producer, Delaney Bramlett; one by acclaimed producer/engineer Tom Dowd; and one by Clapton himself. Clapton’s mix is being released in full for the first time with the new collection.

In addition, a A single-LP vinyl reissue of the album featuring Dowd’s mix also will be released simultaneously.

The new reissue also will include a disc featuring singles, alternate versions and session outtakes.
