Eric Clapton - There's One In Every Crowd (RSO, 1975)

Eric Clapton's There's One In Every Crowd
E.C.'s poorly received in Trenchtown ears.

  1. Following the global success of "I Shot the Sheriff," Eric Clapton headed to Jamaica in hopes of wringing additional inspiration out of that nation's poor. As he noted at the time, "No matter where you go, the music’s in the air. Everyone is singing all the time, even the maids at the hotel, and it really gets into your blood." We don't know whether it was a maid, a shoeshine boy or a bartender who inspired E.C. to record a reggae version of "Swing Low, Sweet Chariot," but we're sure his or her reward will be great in Heaven.
