Anthology Volumes 1 - 6
This is a large compilation from MUM records that covers everything Clapton before his solo career took off. There's alot of Cream, Derek and the Dominos, Delaney and Bonnie and Blind Faith here. There are some real jems on this compilation infact just about the whole thing is a must have jem. Some of the stuff here is real mono sounding but boots don't get much better than this for both sound and content.
Heres what the Eric Clapton-FAQ says:
I have not listed the sound quality for each track, or for each volume. Most of the tracks are sb5 or sb6; however, those that are audience recordings are of a quality equal to or better than any of the other versions of the same performance on another CD.
Lineups and cross-references are too numerous to list.
