Here's a Must To Avoid: Eric Clapton –The Studio Album Collection (1970-1981). It's an eight disc collection that runs from Layla and Other Assorted Love Songs through Another Ticket. Let me break it down for you: Layla is essential. If you somehow don't own a copy, get a copy. 461 Ocean Blvd. has some nice moments, although it also features Clapton's cover of "I Shot the Sheriff" which has been unnecessary for almost as long as it has been in existence. You can probably find a cheap used copy if you are interested. I have never seen a copy of  There's One in Every Crowd that didn't have the notch cut in the top corner indicating that it was a cut-out. Those of us who payed the buck ninety-nine felt like we got burned, and we were right. No Reason to Cry features a Bob Dylan song that is otherwise unavailable. It is a terrible Bob Dylan song, and your life will be no less complete and satisfying if you never hear it. Trust be on this one: you won't be able to un-hear it. As for the rest, if you want a J.J. Cale album, buy a J.J. Cale album.

Eric Clapton solo records were the biggest disappointment of my teenage musical life. Clapton needs to work with others who have equal input to produce the good stuff. Wasn't he the one who said if he had a choice between doing something and laying around he'd much rather lay around? His solo records are him just laying around.
