One of the most celebrated musicians of all time, blues rocker Eric Clapton is certainly a legend – for better or worse. This fascinating 1995 documentary takes a close look at Clapton and his influences, and the history of the blues. Restored in stunning 4K and available now on Blu-ray, the film is essential viewing for music fans – regardless how you feel about Clapton. This is a love letter not to Clapton but to the blues itself, and it’s a truly compelling watch.

We took a look at the Blu-ray release…


Eric Clapton’s lifelong passion for the blues burns brightly in Nothing but the Blues. The film – which was broadcasted once in the U.S. on PBS in 1995 and nominated for an Emmy Award – has been upgraded to 4K for its long-awaited official release. Written and produced by Scooter Weintraub and executive produced by Martin Scorsese, the documentary includes an in-depth interview with Clapton conducted by Scorsese. 

Throughout the interview, Clapton discusses his love for the blues and the profound impact bluesmen like Muddy Waters and B.B. King had on his music. Many of those artists (Robert Johnson, Howlin’ Wolf, Buddy Guy, T-Bone Walker) appear in the film through vintage performances, interviews, and photographs. The film also features 20 previously unreleased live performances recorded in 1994 during the legendary guitarist’s tour supporting From The Cradle, his Grammy-winning, multi-platinum blues album.
