Eric Clapton: Unplugged
MTV / 1992 / 65 Mins / Rated E


MOVIE

Yet another fine concert disc here. This is Eric Clapton doing what he does best. His range as a singer is amazing, from upbeat enjoyable tracks like Hey Hey to sad ballads like Tears In Heaven. 

This is yet another great concert disc. The best tracks are numbers 1, 5, 8 & 12. Very Enjoyable.

2. Signe.
3. Before You Accuse Me.
4. Hey Hey.
5. Tears In Heaven.

13. Malted Milk.
14. Old Love.
15. Rollin' & Tumblin.
VIDEO
The picture quality is quite soft on this transfer, this disc was mastered from video rather than film so this would account for some lack of picture quality. The colors are very muted as well. On the whole this isn't the best picture quality.

Eric Clapton: Unplugged was filmed in 4:3 Pan & Scan format and is presented as such

This is a double-sided, single layer disc.
The Dolby Digital 5.1 soundtrack is on side A.
The PCM Stereo soundtrack is on side B.

AUDIO

There are 2 sound formats with this disc. The Dolby Digital 5.1 soundtrack on side A and the PCM Stereo soundtrack is on side B. The Dolby soundtrack sounds much more immersive with more use of the surrounds than the PCM soundtrack. Don't get me wrong the PCM soundtrack is still very good if you have a 2 channel system, but the DD5.1 soundtrack is the go if you have the appropriate hardware.

The dialog is easy to listen to.

EXTRAS
No extras just scene selections.
FINAL THOUGHTS
This is an average music disc, worth a rental at least.
