New documentary makes the story Eric Clapton rise to the top of Cream

See also

In 1968, Eric Clapton was at a crossroads. A virtuoso lead guitarist and the crown prince of heavy rock with Cream, he had quickly risen to the very pinnacle of popular music's hierarchy. Yet his exposure to the work of American mavericks The Band led him to lose faith in his own group, and to embark on a bold musical journey across the following decade.|
And so Eric Clapton-The 1960s Review (MVD Entertainment Group), follows Clapton's journey through the '70s, from his immersion in musical collectives such as Delaney & Bonnie & Friends and Derek and the Dominos, through his re-emergence in '74 as a phenomenally successful solo artist and onwards across a series of critically acclaimed albums and tours in the latter half of the decade which cemented EC's reputation as not just an extraordinary musician but as a composer of majestic material and a performer of quite startling intensity.
Featuring new and archive interviews, rare performance footage, contributions from such folk as Bonnie Bramlett, Bobby Whitlock, The Albert Brothers , George Terry, Willie Perkins, Bill Halverson and Clapton biographer Marc Roberty, this makes Cream (sort of) rise to the top.
