January 2016 sees the release of this impressive eight-piece, vinyl only box set, which brings together all of Eric Clapton's solo studio albums from his time with the Polydor/RSO label, spanning the period 1971 – 1980. Each album has been faithfully replicated and pressed on 180g vinyl and two of them, Eric Clapton – Eric Clapton and Derek and The Dominos – Layla And Other Assorted Love Songs, have been re-mastered for this release.

He is the only three time inductee to the Rock and Roll Hall Of Fame and is one of the most important and influential guitarists of all time. He has been the recipient of 17 Grammy Awards, 1 Brit Award and 1 Bafta.
