Redfella’s Pick of the Day

In 1992, Clapton was invited to play for the MTV Unplugged series. His subsequent album, Unplugged, featured a number of blues standards and his new “Tears in Heaven“. It also featured an “unplugged” version of “Layla”. The new arrangement slowed down and reworked the original riff and dispensed with the piano coda.[2] This version climbed to #12 on the U.S. charts but failed to chart in Britain. It would later win a Grammy Award in 1992 for Best Rock Song, beating out “Smells Like Teen Spirit” by Nirvana. The win would later be named one of the 10 biggest upsets in Grammy history by Entertainment Weekly
