Details of Eric Clapton documentary Life In 12 Bars soundtrack announced

Featuring Four Unreleased Tracks

The Showtime documentary chronicling the life of Eric Clapton is coming to a 32-song soundtrack album, featuring the wide array of world renowned artists he worked with over his long and successful career.

Directed by Oscar-winner Lili Fini Zanuck - best know for her work on Rush, Driving Miss Daisy and Reign of Fire to name a few - this very intimate look into the life of the 18-time Grammy award winning musician and songwriter is now soon to be released as a standalone soundtrack. The two CD, four LP set will include 32 tracks from right across Eric Clapton's whirlwind musical career, and is slated for release on Friday June 8 via Universal.

 

 

The compilation features songs Clapton recorded with the likes of The Yardbirds, Cream, The Beatles, Muddy Waters, Aretha Franklin, Blind Faith, Derek and the Dominos, and George Harrison, as well as a number of his own solo outings. Four of these selections are previously unreleased, including the full-length version of his cover of Bob Marley's 'I Shot The Sheriff'.
