In a career that's spanned more than half a century, Eric Clapton has always been a known champion of the blues. In 1995, he even made a documentary about it - and that film, executive produced by Martin Scorsese, is making its debut release on June 24.

Nothing But the Blues tracked Clapton's musical journey as through the songs of blues greats that inspired him. The year before, he had released the chart-topping From the Cradle, his first to entirely consist of blues covers. A companion live tour ended with two nights at The Fillmore in San Francisco, CA, which were recorded and included in Nothing But the Blues, which debuted on public television in America but never saw a home video release.

The documentary now features upgraded 4K video quality and remixed audio of the performances - and more than a dozen of the live performances will make their debut as a companion soundtrack on CD and 2LP. A super deluxe box set will include the documentary, the soundtrack on both formats, a bonus CD featuring four extra performances, a hardcover book, a poster, custom guitar picks and more.
