OK folks, a couple weeks ago I announced the release of Complete Clapton (a 2 disc compilation of 36 of Eric Clapton's greatest songs from 1968 to 2006) and Clapton: The Autobiography (a book in which Clapton personally recounts his legendary life: from the early days of his career, through his turbulent struggle with addiction, to the loss of his four-year-old son).
Here's your chance to win a copy of BOTH of them! Here's the deal, leave me a comment (or e-mail me) with your name, e-mail address and the answer to the following question: Which period in Clapton's storied career do you feel is the pinnacle of his guitar-god prowess (his work with The Yardbirds, Cream, or his solo work) and why.
I'll pick a winner at random next Thursdayish and e-mail the lucky soul pronto.
