Eric Clapton's 1974 album, 461 Ocean Boulevard, was named after the Miami residence he lived in while recording it, inspiring legions of fans to flock to it over the years. The album itself marked a spectacular return to success for Clapton, following a 3-year down period of addiction and recovery. It became one of Clapton's most commercially successful releases, charting in the Top 10 in 8 countries, reaching number one in the U.S. and Canada, and selling over 500K copies.
Notable songs from this LP include: "I Shot the Sheriff," "Motherless Children," Let it Grow," and "Willie and the Hand Jive."
