It's a good compilation of Clapton's body of work up until the mid 80's, and the cover/packaging is a very good looking and sturdy gatefold. The record itself is the thinnest piece of plastic I've ever seen, apart from flexidiscs (it bends if I hold it by the edges, that's how it flimsy it is). Not every record needs to be 180 or 200 grams, but come on... Otherwise, a good introduction to Clapton's music, which can be found very cheap and doesn't sound bad.
