Eric Clapton & Friends / The Breeze – An Appreciation of J.J. Cale box set

deluxe2(1)

Next week sees the release of Eric Clapton‘s The Breeze – An Appreciation of J.J. Cale.

Clapton has gathered a group of like-minded friends and musicians and recorded 16 Cale tracks as his tribute to the guitarist/songwriter. This new record features performances by Mark Knopfler, John Mayer, Willie Nelson, Tom Petty, Derek Trucks and Don White, as well as Clapton himself.

The standard CD and 2LP vinyl editions are widely available but Surfdog Records in the US have created two special deluxe box sets, exclusive to their site.

The Deluxe Edition CD Box Set features the standard CD of the new album along with a companion disc that features the Cale originals (including three previously unreleased home). The two discs are set inside a presentation box that features an image of JJ Cale’s iconic Harmony guitar, and also included is a USB stick in the shape of a turnbuckle. Included on the USB is hi-definition (24/96) versions of all the tracks as well as a video interview with Eric Clapton. Six lithographs, a book and some photos are also included in this set.

If this CD box doesn’t appeal then there is a four-LP vinyl set which contains the same content across two double-LP sets. To be exact, six sides of music with two etched sides with images of Cale’s guitar. The discs are also on coloured blue and gold vinyl.
