Eric Clapton – Give Me Strength – The ’74/’75 Recordings – 5CD + Blu-ray audio 3 LP Universal 25-11-2013

Esce solo alla fine di novembre ma non ho resistito al fascino dell’anteprima, allo “sgub” come lo chiama Aldo Biscardi, dopo Slowhand (e inframmezzato dal mini-box dedicato all’Unplugged che però uscirà per la Warner in una forma più ridotta al 15 ottobre, ma ne parliamo in un’altra occasione), verrà pubblicato questo ulteriore cofanetto dedicato alla discografia 70’s di Eric Clapton. Qualcuno mi ricorderà, giustamente, che 461 Ocean Boulevard è già uscito nel 2004 in versione doppia Deluxe, con 3 outtakes uguali a quelle che saranno contenute nella nuova versione, che però ne riporta ulteriori 4 (ma mancano le due jam blues!). In più abbiamo There’s One In Every Crowd sempre registrato ai Criteria Studios di Miami con la produzione di Tom Dowd, potenziato da altre 5 outtakes (2 inedite) + il singolo di Knockin’ On Heaven’s Door.

La ristampa dell’ottimo live E.C. Was Here con un secondo CD aggiunto di materiale dal vivo, di cui due brani già apparivano nel secondo dischetto di 461 Ocean Boulevard e parecchi altri si trovano nel cofanetto Crossroads 2: Live in The Seventies (sotto trovate le liste, TBC come si usa dire), da confermarsi, di quello che conterrà la nuova ristampa. Nel quinto CD ci sono jam e brani blues registrati con Freddie King, sempre ai Criteria Studios di Miami, e apparsi nei dischi del grande chitarrista nero pubblicati dalla RSO (e ristampati dalla BGO), più un inedito. Anche il Blu-ray, audio, contiene delle versioni alternative, anche quadrafoniche, di brani registrati sempre in quel fatidico periodo, tra l’Aprile 1974 e il giugno 1975. Il tutto, ripeto, è in via di conferma e mi sembra molto interessante, anche se, come è ormai buona regola della discografia, si ricompra più o meno sempre la stessa roba. Il prezzo del tutto non sarò esorbitante, come nel caso della versione Superdeluxe di Slowhand, per cui, mentre vi leggete la lista dei brani, meditate, gente, meditate!
