Slowhand is the fifth full-length studio album by Eric Clapton. Released on 25 November 1977, and titled after Clapton’s nickname, it is one of his most commercially and critically successful studio albums. Slowhand produced the two hit singles in Lay Down Sally and Wonderful Tonight, reached various international music charts and was honoured with numerous awards and recording certifications.

This 35th anniversary edition sees the album newly remastered from the original analogue masters. Also included is a digital download code.

Clapton wanted to work with record producer Glyn Johns, because he thought Johns produced great work with famous groups like the Rolling Stones and Eagles and understood how to work with both British and American musicians. While in the studio with Johns, Clapton noted that the A-list producer was very disciplined and disliked jamming, because it would kill important recording time. Although Clapton and his band were intoxicated nearly all the time when recording, Johns liked Clapton’s work and brought out the best in every musician, according to Clapton.

In a retrospective review for AllMusic, Stephen Thomas Erlewine wrote that the confident, virtuosic quality in the band’s playing and the diversity of the songwriting made Slowhand ‘rank with 461 Ocean Boulevard as Eric Clapton’s best albums’. In 2003, Slowhand was ranked No. 325 on Rolling Stone’s list of ‘The 500 Greatest Albums of All Time’, and again in 2012.
