Remastered re-release of the eighth full-length studio album by legendary British Blues Rock guitarist and singer.
"Money And Cigarettes" marked several important turning points in Eric Clapton's recording career. It was his debut release on his own Duck imprint within Warner Bros.' Reprise Records subsidiary. It was also his first album after rehabilitation from alcoholism. Newly focused and having written a batch of new songs, he became dissatisfied with his longtime band and fired them, with the exception of second guitarist Albert Lee. In their place, he hired session pros like Stax Records veteran bassist Donald "Duck" Dunn and Muscle Shoals drummer Roger Hawkins, also bringing in guest guitarist Ry Cooder.
The album was moderately successful commercially, reaching Top 20 chart positions in several countries. Critical reception was lukewarm.
Remastered from the original analog master tapes.
