Eric Clapton — Soundtrack: Rush (1992)

clapton rushBy Scott Goldfine

Guitar-picking czar Eric Clapton has scored the music for “Rush,” his first motion picture soundtrack. The disc’s atmospheric first half sounds like Pink Floyd outtakes, providing scant aural pleasures. The LP’s three true songs close out the set, with the 10-minute-plus “Don’t Know Which Way to Go” (featuring blues great Buddy Guy) the clear highlight.

This one is strictly for Slowhand’s legion.
