Slowhand is the fifth solo studio album by Eric Clapton. Released on 25 November 1977 by RSO Records, and titled after Clapton's nickname, it is one of his commercially and critically most successful studio albums. Slowhand produced the two hit singles "Lay Down Sally" and "Wonderful Tonight", reached various international music charts and was honored with numerous awards and recording certifications.

Slowhand – альбом Эрика Клэптона, изданный в 1977 году. Он заключает в себе три его самых популярных сингла, блюзовую Cocaine, балладу Wonderful Tonight и кантри-вещь Lay Down Sally, хотя другие вещи стали такой же классикой Клэптона, типа The Core или Next Time You See Her. Название альбома – это прозвище Эрика, которое ему дал Джорджио Гомельски (Giorgio Gomelsky). Альбом получился довольно успешным, особенно на фоне предыдущего провального альбома No Reason to Cry. Wonderful Tonight (Clapton) – 3:44. Lay Down Sally (Clapton, Marcy Levy, George Terry) – 3:56. Next Time You See Her (Clapton) – 4:01. We're All the Way (Don Williams) – 2:32. Сторона 2. The Core (Clapton/Levy) – 8:45. May You Never (John Martyn) – 3:01. Mean Old Frisco (Arthur Crudup) – 4:42.

After the guest-star-drenched No Reason to Cry failed to make much of an impact commercially, Eric Clapton returned to using his own band for Slowhand. The difference is substantial - where No Reason to Cry struggled hard to find the right tone, Slowhand opens with the relaxed, bluesy shuffle of . Cale's "Cocaine" and sustains it throughout the course of the album.

Welcome to Eric Clapton's mailing list.

Slowhand is Clapton’s fifth solo studio album and was released in 1977. The album was named after Eric Clapton’s nickname, which he got fom Giorgio Gomelsky, manager of The Yardbirds: On my guitar I used light-gauge guitar strings, with a very thin first string, which made it easier to bend the notes, and it was not uncommon during the most frenetic bits of playing for me to break at least one string. During the pause while I was changing my string, the frenzied audience would often break into a slow handclap, inspiring Giorgio to dream up the nickname of ‘Slowhand’ Clapton. It was a haven, a sanctuary. The music counterbalanced the difficulty in my personal life. The strength of Slowhand was in the people playing together – Carl Radle, Dickie Sims, Jamie Oldaker. That unit was on fire. That was the power of Slowhand.

within these bands and throughout his solo career, Clapton has twisted the blues every which way to make it sound fresh and new and he's done a damn. The Album kicks off with the catchy riffing from Clapton, as he covers . Cale's 'Cocaine', a song about how you shouldn't use cocaine, apparently. Drug controversies aside, this song is a steady album opener and is fantastic when heard live. Clapton uses an intresting method of recording solo's over solo's, changing a few notes within the solo. Great way to kick off the album. The next song on offer is a strange one.
