Clapton's Unplugged Reissued

Eric Clapton
The unplugged phenomenon had already been a pretty big deal prior to Clapton's 1992 Unplugged appearance, but the album was responsible for a dramatic kickstart in the popularity of the acoustic guitar.

It's sold over 10 million copies and earned Clapton six Grammy Awards: 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.

The new version, Unplugged: Expanded and Remastered, will include the remastered version of the original album as well as a second disc of other songs that weren't included on the 1992 release: a cover of Big Maceo Merriweather’s “Worried Life Blues,” an alternate version of "Walkin’ Blues" and early versions of "Circus" and "My Father’s Eyes," both of which would later be recorded for 1998's Pilgrim.

The set will also include a DVD featuring a newly restored version of the original MTV broadcast and more than an hour of previously unseen rehearsal footage.

Unplugged: Expanded and Remastered is due for release on October 15 via Rhino.
