Eric Clapton’s Give Me Strength – My Conversation With Producer Bill Levenson

HTN logoFrom Issue #79 of Hittin’ The Note magazine: Bill Levenson, Executive Producer of the new Eric Clapton release Give Me Strength: The ’74/’75 Recordings discusses the task of assembling the new box set. Give Me Strength focuses on a period of Clapton’s career that is often overlooked: the 1974-75 run that produced the 461 Ocean Boulevard and There’s One In Every Crowd studio albums, along with the live E.C. Was Here. Coming on the heels of Clapton’s heroin-fueled, three-year, post-Layla exile, the 461/Every Crowd/E.C. trilogy is truly the soundtrack of Clapton’s reemergence from self-imposed darkness.

Bill was kind enough to take HTN behind the curtain, providing a look at the birthing process of Give Me Strength – a 6-disc collection that sheds long-overdue light on this era in Clapton history.
