Analogplanet Radio's "Eric Clapton Tribute" Show Now Available For Streaming Here and on

Today’s Analogplanet WFDU HD/ Radio Show is an Eric Clapton tribute. Of course all from vinyl, mostly original pressings. It starts with a track from his latest album and then goes back to the beginning with a track from Five Live Yardbirds.

After a few assorted Yardbird tracks taken from a double Epic reissue and “For Your Love”, his final recording for The Yardbirds after which he quit the group, are three songs from Blues Breakers John Mayall With Eric Clapton. The first track is from a stereo reissue produced by Decca for Vivante Productions in the 1990s. The second is a Mobile Fidelity stereo reissue produced back when Mo-Fi was pressing in Japan. The third is a Sundazed mono reissue sourced from the original mono tape.

The rest are as indicated. I think this is a musically great show, though not long enough to cover all bases. A part two will be forthcoming.

Hello Michael, I've never been much of a fan of Cream or Eric Clapton, but you managed to put together such a compelling blend of music (along with your inimitable banter) that I'm currently obsessed with seeking out as many of the records played on the show as I can. Excellent, excellent stuff, and thank you for opening up an entire new world for me.

Michael nice tribute to Eric Clapton and your voice hasn't changed much since the New England Music City ads in the early 70's
