King on his music. Many of those artists such as Robert Johnson, Howlin’ Wolf, Buddy Guy, T-Bone Walker will appear in the film through archived performances, interviews, and photographs.
“Nothing But The Blues” will have an accompanying soundtrack to be released by Reprise Records that features more than an hour of previously unreleased live performances recorded during Clapton’s 1994 tour and will be available as a standalone on CD and 2LP vinyl. The music will also be available for digital and streaming services on the same day of the release.
