Eric Clapton’s long-awaited documentary Nothing But The Blues and its soundtrack will be released on June 24 in multiple formats.
The film, which was broadcast once in the U.S. on PBS in 1995 and nominated for an Emmy, has been upgraded to 4K for its long-awaited official release.
In addition to the film, Reprise will release a new soundtrack with more than an hour of previously unreleased live performances recorded in 1994 during the legendary guitarist’s tour supporting From The Cradle, his Grammy-winning, multi-platinum blues album.
Written and produced by Scooter Weintraub and executive produced by Martin Scorsese, the documentary includes an in-depth interview with Clapton.
At the heart of the film and audio formats are Clapton’s performances of blues standards and lesser-known blues songs. The CD features 17 songs; the double LP 18, and the DVD and Blu-ray each contains 20 songs.
Nothing But The Blues and the accompanying soundtrack will be released on June 24 in multiple formats. The Super Deluxe Edition (US $199.98) comes with the documentary on Blu-ray, the soundtrack on both 2-LP vinyl and CD, a bonus CD with four extra tracks “Driftin’,” County Jail Blues,” “Kid Man Blues,” and “Too Bad,” and an exclusive hardcover book with memorabilia.
The documentary will be available separately on Blu-ray (US $24.99) and DVD (US $19.99). Additionally, the soundtrack will be released as a standalone on CD (US $18.98) and 2-LP vinyl (US $34.98 – available July 29). The music will also be available from digital and streaming services on the same day.
