Back in October, the quadruple vinyl edition soundtrack for Eric Claptons's Life In 12 Bars documentary was selling for over £80 on Amazon.

Now that Cyber Monday is here it's less that £30 (opens in new tab), and while it's not the most attractive package we've ever seen, the contents are top-notch, covering not only the music that inspired Clapton, but lots of classic releases from his own career.

So alongside blues pioneers like Big Bill Broonzy and Muddy Waters, you've got tracks from John Mayall & The Bluesbreakers, Cream, Aretha Franklin, a rare appearance on a compilation album from The Beatles, Derek And The Dominos and Blind Faith.    

And at just £27.99? It's a bargain (opens in new tab). Need a new record player to go with your new vinyl? Check out our guide to the best turntables, including the best budget turntables.

The original soundtrack to the Eric Clapton documentary ‘Life In 12 Bars’, directed by Oscar-winner Lili Fini Zanuck. The film is an unflinching and deeply personal look into the life of legendary 18-time Grammy winner Eric Clapton.

Life In 12 Bars premiered at the 2017 Toronto International Film Festival, and charts Clapton’s life and career.

“Clapton’s music is the foundation of our film," said director Lili Fini Zanuck. "His commitment to the blues, its traditions and originators, is absolute from his earliest days. He was also forever restless in his search of a suitable vehicle to shape and grow his artistic voice, often bewildering fans and the media with sudden changes in musical direction, bands, songs, guitar style, tone and physical appearance.”
