Old Love – Eric Clapton (LIVE – Hyde Park ’97)

Published on May 8, 2018

 

Live In Hyde Park is concert film recorded by blues-rock guitarist Eric Clapton on 29 June 1996 in London’s Hyde Park. The concert was presented by the MasterCard Masters of Music for The Prince’s Trust and featured songs from right across his career. The VHS of the footage from the concert was released in 1997, followed by a DVD version in 2001.

“Old Love” is part of the Journeyman, a 1989 album by Eric Clapton. Heralded as a return to form for Clapton, who had struggled with alcohol addiction and had recently found sobriety, the album has a 1980s electronic sound, but it also includes blues songs like “Before You Accuse Me”, “Running on Faith”, and “Hard Times.” “Bad Love” was released as a single, reaching the No. 1 position on the Album Rock Chart, and being awarded a Grammy Award for Best Male Rock Vocal Performance in 1990. “Pretending” had also reached the No. 1 position on the Album Rock Chart the previous year, remaining at the top for five weeks (“Bad Love” had only stayed for three weeks).

While the album was only a moderate commercial success at the time, reaching number 16 on the Billboard 200 chart, it went on to become his first solo studio album to go double platinum. Clapton has stated that Journeyman is one of his favorite albums.
