Eric Clapton – Almost Recorded With vic flick

Clapton recorded a rendition of the Bond theme for the Licence To Kill soundtrack with multi-time Bond guitarist, Vic Flick, also on guitar–a title song. They shot video footage too, along the Thames with a live performance!

Conventional wisdom says the producers wanted a ballad sung by a female. Hence, Clapton`s version, if he did one, would have been scrapped. However, the 30th Anniversary Album contains rare and never before heard tracks from discarded song attempts. It`s possible that maybe something Clapton recorded would show up on a future compilation album at some date . . . his archival stuff is stored at a relative’s house!
