Eric Clapton

The 1960s Review DVD

Review by Gary Hill

I’ve never been one of those people who were blown away by Eric Clapton. That said, I’ve always felt that music he did in the 1960s was, without question, the most vital and important of his career. It was when he was at his creative peak and his most influential. This documentary covers that period of time. It gives an interesting in-depth look at Clapton’s tenure in groups like The Yardbirds, Bluesbreakers, Cream and Blind Faith. There is plenty of archival footage and other goodies along with interviews to help tell the story. Frankly, I like this documentary a lot, and I’m not a huge Clapton fan. That really says a lot.

This review is available in book format (hardcover and paperback) in Music Street Journal: 2010  Volume 5 at
