In 1992, Eric Clapton released Unplugged , an album that captured a live acoustic performance by the legendary guitarist that aired on MTV.  The record went on to be Clapton's most successful ever, selling more than 10 million copies in the U.S. alone and garnering a whopping six Grammy Awards, including Album of the Year, Record of the Year and Song of the Year.

Now, a deluxe, expanded version of Unplugged is scheduled to be released on October 15.  Unplugged: Expanded and Remastered is a two-CD/DVD set featuring six previously unreleased audio outtakes from the concert, a restored video of the show and more than an hours' worth of unseen footage filmed during rehearsals for the program.

Unplugged features Clapton, accompanied by a small backing band, running through a set combining then-recent material, select blues classics and a few memorable tunes from his back catalog.  Among the many standouts are his reworked version of "Layla," a rendition of Robert Johnson 's "Walkin' Blues" and his touching performance of "Tears in Heaven," his homage to his young son Conor who was killed in a falling accident the previous year.

Among the extra tracks included on the expanded Unplugged 's second CD are renditions of the then-unreleased tunes "Circus" and "My Father's Eyes" and an alternate take of "Walkin' Blues."  As for the DVD, it includes footage of the full original concert, plus Clapton and his band rehearsing the set, along with several tunes that didn't make it on to the broadcast.
