Some deep cuts are strong as well, as shown with the era Riding with the King that totals 725,000 sales in spite of no real hit. At 23.73 million, Unplugged is quite simply the greatest selling live record of all-time. His first career spanning best of, Time Pieces, is up to 13.64 million.

Ironically again, the album was about the only Clapton album that failed to chart in the UK. The sublime single UK Layla / Bell Bottom Blues also failed to chart. Layla subsequently won a NME poll in the 70’s as the best single of all time! It made a lofty no 71 in the states. Re-released in the UK in July 1972 it made no 7. Which all goes to show, that even the greatest record in the world can flop without promotion or that in the long run true quality will emerge eventually. As a reminder, the weighting is done with a 10 to 3 ratio between one album and one physical single. Clapton is obviously no one-album wonder, with a career scoring 4.68 million EAS, which is twice as much as his 3 biggest albums together, a fact which highlights a very dense catalog.a b "Derek And The Dominos* - Layla And Other Assorted Love Songs".

As for comparing this album to what occurred with Cream, I realize some people might and did do this but I would want to remain open minded to a work’s value of its own rather than expect something similar to what came before.
