Slowhand by Eric Clapton

Originally released in 1977, Slowhand is considered to be one of Eric Clapton's best. This is still one of my favorite albums, and I never get tired of listening to it. There are the hits that we all remember, such as "Cocaine," "Wonderful Tonight," and "Lay Down Sally," but don't overlook the rest of the songs.

This 35th anniversary edition contains a total of 27 songs, and there are some hidden gems. I recommend "Next Time You See Her," "May You Never," and "Knocking on Heaven's Door" to name a few. By the way, did you know that the title of the album is Eric Clapton's nickname?
