One of my favorite recordings from Clapton has always been the studio version of
that old blues song Eyesight To The Blind. He recorded it with John Entwhistle
as part of the album released for the movie Tommy. I think it was a trio. Was
the drummer Kenny Jones? Keith Moon was alive at the time, but I seem to recall
it being Kenny on the skins for that song.

Anyway, Eric was in a zone during that studio recording. Just wonderful, emotive

1) Does anyone know what guitar he used for that session?
2) Were there any other songs recorded by Eric during this session that remain

He must have been in a good playing mood that day. The results were stunning on
Eyesight To The Blind.
