Eric Clapton DVD coming in March

In 1968, Eric Clapton was at a crossroads. A virtuoso lead guitarist and the crown prince of heavy rock, with Cream he had quickly risen to the very pinnacle of popular music's hierarchy. Yet his exposure to the work of American mavericks The Band led him to lose faith in his own group, and to embark on a bold musical journey across the following decade.

A new DVD, Eric Clapton - The 1970s Review, due on March 11 via MVD, follows Clapton's journey through the '70s, from his immersion in musical collectives such as Delaney & Bonnie & Friends and Derek and the Dominos, through his re-emergence in 1974 as a phenomenally successful solo artist. Then onwards across a series of critically acclaimed albums and tours in the latter half of the decade which cemented EC's reputation as not just an extraordinary musician but as a composer of majestic material and a performer of quite startling intensity.

Featuring new and archive interviews, rare performance footage, contributions from the likes of Bonnie Bramlett, Bobby Whitlock, The Albert Brothers , George Terry, Willie Perkins, Bill Halverson, Clapton biographer Marc Roberty and more, plus a host of other features.
