  1. Backless

    Backless is the sixth studio album by blues rocker Eric Clapton, released in 1978. The album reached #8 on the pop charts. While the single "Promises" only reached #37 in the UK, it was a much bigger success in the US, reaching #9 on the Billboard charts. A blue and white scarf worn by Clapton on the album sleeve is believed to be a scarf of West Bromwich Albion Football Club. Clapton is widely believed to be supporter of the club, despite being born in Ripley, Surrey more than 100 miles away, though in recent years has reportedly been more interested in Chelsea F.C..
