Eric Clapton Documentary ‘Life in 12 Bars’ Coming to Home Video
Eric Clapton: Life in 12 Bars is coming to home video — and it's bringing a double-disc soundtrack with it.
The documentary, which debuted at the Toronto International Film Festival last year before heading to Showtime for a broadcast run, is scheduled to arrive in stores on June 8. Available on DVD and Blu-ray as well as digital formats, the film offers an overview of Clapton's private life and career through interviews with the artist as well as friends, peers and family members, interspersed with archival performance footage.
In addition to the film, Life in 12 Bars will be available as a soundtrack recording that presents a rough summary of Clapton's influences and lengthy output as a band member and solo artist. Including 32 tracks — a handful of which are previously unreleased — the soundtrack is being issued as a double-CD set on the same day as the DVD and Blu-ray, with a four-LP vinyl edition following on July 20.
