Description

Eric Clapton’s lifelong passion for the blues burns brightly in Nothing But The Blues. The film – which was broadcast once in the U.S. on PBS in 1995 and nominated for an Emmy® Award – is now making its long-awaited official release on DVD and CD seperately. In addition to the DVD, a new soundtrack CD with more than an hour of previously unreleased live performances recorded in 1994.

Written and produced by Scooter Weintraub and executive produced by Martin Scorsese, the documentary includes an in-depth interview with Clapton conducted by Scorsese. Throughout the interview, Clapton discusses his love for the blues and the profound impact bluesmen like Muddy Waters and B.B. King had on his music.

At the heart of the film and audio formats are Clapton’s performances of blues standards and lesser-known blues songs. The CD features 17 songs; and the DVD contain 20 songs. Two nights at the Fillmore in San Francisco (November 8 & 9, 1994) were filmed and recorded during his acclaimed From The Cradle tour, and the highlights from the two shows were selected for this release.
