Eric Clapton – Change the World “Live”

In the mid-1960s, Clapton left the Yardbirds to play blues with John Mayall & the Bluesbreakers. Immediately after leaving Mayall, Clapton joined Cream, a power trio with drummer Ginger Baker and bassist Jack Bruce in which Clapton played sustained blues improvisations and “arty, blues-based psychedelic pop”.

For most of the 1970s, Clapton’s output bore the influence of the mellow style of JJ Cale and the reggae of Bob Marley. His version of Marley’s “I Shot the Sheriff” helped reggae reach a mass market. Two of his most popular recordings were “Layla”, recorded while he was a member of the band Derek and the Dominos; and Robert Johnson’s “Crossroads”, recorded by the band Cream.

Change the World is a song written by Tommy Sims, Gordon Kennedy, and Wayne Kirkpatrick whose best-known version was recorded by Eric Clapton for the soundtrack of the 1996 film, Phenomenon. The song won Grammy Awards for Record of the Year, Song of the Year, and Best Male Pop Vocal performance.
