Back in the spring of 2014, we reported on a little known recording Eric Clapton made in 1995 that had resurfaced.
Now, four-and-a-half years later, the cover of bluesman Willie Brown's "Mississippi Blues," that he cut with guitarist Tim Duffy, has a release date.
On February 1st, Duffy's Music Maker Relief Foundation -- the non-profit organization that helps traditional, southern musicians who live in poverty -- will release a compilation album titled Blue Muse in celebration of its 25th anniversary. The 21-track collection contains the Clapton-Duffy song, along with songs by Taj Mahal and others.
Clapton says, "Music Maker is a fabulous project; real evidence that the music I have always loved is alive and well.”
Album sales will support the continuing work of the Music Maker Relief Foundation.
