Eric Clapton’s catalog of studio albums recorded between 1983 and 2010 plus three live albums have, since first release, been licensed to Warner Records but are now moving to Surfdog Records on 1st October 2022.
Eric has enjoyed working with many individuals at Warner over the years, but with the greatly changed landscape of the music business and the increasing significance of streaming income, it has been decided to take a different approach to the marketing of the catalog.
In recent years, Eric has collaborated with and been impressed by Dave Kaplan and Surfdog on several new record releases in North America, including his last four studio albums, and is also now looking forward to working with Surfdog worldwide in relation to this catalog.
The Eric Clapton albums with Surfdog from 1st October 2022 include:
1983 Money and Cigarettes
1985 Behind the Sun
1994 From the Cradle
2004 Me and Mr. Johnson
2004 Sessions for Robert J
2005 Back Home
2006 Road to Escondido – Eric Clapton & JJ Cale
2002 One More Car, One More Rider (Live at Staples Center LA)
2016 Live in San Diego
