Sunshine Of Your Love Collector Copies Available Now
"Staging these festivals has been the culmination of all my musical ambitions, and created the opportunity for me to replay my entire journey through music." – Eric Clapton
"Crossroads brought together all the players I had admired and respected over the years. It was like a magic circus, a dream come true." – Eric Clapton

Genesis Publications are now shipping the next consignment of hand-finished copies of Sunshine of Your Love by Eric Clapton and friends. Personally signed by a host of legendary performers from the Crossroads Festivals, this hand-bound book & vinyl edition is limited to only 1,650 numbered Collector Copies. The Deluxe Edition was an immediate sell-out.
In Sunshine of Your Love an original 36,000-word manuscript not only documents the extraordinary series of Crossroads concerts but also tells a wider story, delving deep into Eric Clapton's career and exploring the rich history of guitar music.
Eric Clapton's text is supplemented with previously unpublished interviews from the Crossroads archives – with blues legends such as B.B King and Buddy Guy – and exclusive new contributions by latter-day guitar virtuosos such as John Mayer and Gary Clark Jr.
