Since September 2010, this blog has recorded the journey of this middle-aged man as I attempt to listen to all the music in my CD collection. CDs revisited in their entirety from start to finish - no skipping tracks, no shuffle. CDs only - no vinyl, no tapes, no downloads. And just as CD technology (and the album format itself) becomes obsolete. I'm no music critic, just a music junkie with too much time on my hands.

Eric Clapton - Timepieces (1982)

This 7x platinum greatest hits CD arrived at my doorstep as a nice gift from a faithful reader (Thanks, bud - you know who you are).  As I popped it into the tray and began listening, it seemed very familiar and for good reason as it is almost identical to this compilation that's been on my shelf for at least 10 years.  No complaints here, though.  If a little bit is good, more must be better, right?

Peak on the US Billboard Top 200 chart: #101
Peak on Cash Box album chart: #92

Tracks:  All tracks are the same until we get to tracks 8 &10.  This album has Willie & The Hand Jive and Swing Low Sweet Chariot, the 2004 release subs Bell Bottom Blues and Let It Rain, respectively.  In my book, that gives the slight advantage to the 2004 release.

Personal Memory Associated with this CD: Obviously, same as here.  And Layla is still the best.

Previously revisited for the blog:
Me and Mr. Johnson (2004)
The Best Of (2004)
