Many bands in the history of Eric Clapton. Some of them little known...
The first band Eric Clapton joined was The Roosters. Eric was asked to join the band following an audition and rehearsal at The Prince of Wales Pub in New Malden, England in January 1963. They disbanded in August 1963.(No known recording) Eric Clapton's Powerhouse was a British blues studio supergroup formed in 1966. Powerhouse was formed with full intention of being a short-lived studio project. The band starred Eric Clapton (guitar), and featured Paul Jones (harmonica) and Jack Bruce (bass) from Manfred Mann, Steve Winwood (vocals) and Pete York (drums) from the Spencer Davis Group, and Ben Palmer (piano) who had previously played with Clapton and Jones as a member of The Roosters. The Dirty Mac were a one-time English supergroup consisting of John Lennon, Eric Clapton, Keith Richards and Mitch Mitchell that Lennon put together for The Rolling Stones' TV special entitled The Rolling Stones Rock and Roll Circus. Recorded on 11 December 1968. The Plastic Ono Band is a conceptual supergroup formed by John Lennon and Yoko Ono in 1969 before the dissolution of the Beatles. Among the various other members of the band were Eric Clapton, two more Beatles (George Harrison and Ringo Starr), artist Klaus Voormann, future Yes drummer Alan White, members of Delaney and Bonnie, the Who's drummer Keith Moon, New York band Elephant's Memory, Billy Preston, Nicky Hopkins, Phil Spector, drummer Jim Keltner, and, in a 2009 revival, Sean Lennon.
Free Creek was a band composed of many internationally renowned musical artists, including Eric Clapton, Jeff Beck, Keith Emerson, Mitch Mitchell and Linda Ronstadt, who recorded one album, in 1969, in a "super session" format. The recordings, made in 1969, were released in 1973

Duffy Power is an English blues and rock and roll singer, who achieved some success in the 1960s and has performed and recorded intermittently since then. He was discovered in 1959 by impresario Larry Parnes, singing at a talent show with his group Duffy and the Dreamers. He was renamed Duffy Power in the style of Parnes' other discoveries, such as Billy Fury, Marty Wilde, Vince Eager and Georgie Fame. He recorded a series of cover versions of such songs as "Dream Lover" and "Ain't She Sweet" as singles for the Fontana label over the next two years, but unlike some of his stablemates failed to achieve commercial success. Duffy left Parnes in 1961, suffering from depression. However, he was introduced by a friend to the growing London blues club scene, and in 1963 teamed up with Graham Bond, Jack Bruce, Ginger Baker and John McLaughlin to record "I Saw Her Standing There", one of the first cover versions of a Beatles song. He continued to record for Parlophone Records through the 1960s, both as a solo artist, often backed by top session musicians, and with Alexis Korner’s Blues Incorporated, but the critical acclaim for his performances failed to be matched by sales. Actually recorded in 1965-67, but released in 1971 on Transatlantic, Innovations, is truly an amazing record with participation from greats Ginger Baker, Jack Bruce, John McLaughlin, Terry Cox, and Danny Thompson. "...Before there was Cream, before there was the Mahavishnu Orchestra, and before there was Pentangle, there was Duffy Power” (Richie Unterberger).

Camel are an English progressive rock band formed in 1971. Music Inspired by The Snow Goose is the third album by the band, released in 1975. The success of the White Rider suite (based on J. R. R. Tolkien's The Lord of the Rings and appearing on the band's previous album, Mirage), inspired the group to write more novel-inspired conceptual suites. The band considered several novels on which to base their next album. For a time they settled on Siddhartha, by Hermann Hesse, and some songs were written before the idea was abandoned in favor of Paul Gallico's novel The Snow Goose. The album's name, originally simply "The Snow Goose", was altered to accommodate legal protests by Gallico. The album was originally due to feature lyrics based around Gallico's text, but due to his objections, an instrumental was made instead. The album reached silver status in 1981, and is considered by many to be their most accessible work. It is remarkable for having no lyrics and orchestral (plus rock) instrumentation. This, along with the band's subsequent release Moonmadness, is considered by fans to be the band's greatest albums.

Raw Holly is a tribute album of sorts to Buddy Holly hits by the British band Raw which was produced by veteran British musician Miki Dallon and featuring the vocals of Ian Campbell and the guitar & sitar of Zed Jenkins. Ironically, the album was released on Holly’s U. S. label Coral Records. (Jack Dominilla)... The album was recorded in 1969 in Central Sound, Denmark Street. Miki Dallon was the guy who did the record deal with Young Blood in UK and Coral in US. He had nothing to do with the recording. A court case ensued and the album was released under the name of Raw Holly. As a Band "Raw Holly” does not and never did exist. The band, New York Public Library and Andy Curtis produced, arranged and played on the album.(Morrison)... The new NYPL line-up recorded an album of Buddy Holly songs, but contractual difficulties and court orders ensued. Without any say in the matter, the album was released as "Raw Holly" in 1970 in the US and Germany.(NYPL website)

A psyche pop duet, nothing is known about them and their backing group. Their only album was produced by Ed Ver Schure and Ralph Murphy (who also wrote eight of the twelve tracks) and they were managed by William McEuen (who also managed Nitty Gritty Dirt Band, Sunshine Company, Hourglass). The album is quite patchy and contains folk/pop (Hello Sleepy Sidewalks), rock (Love Machine, penned by Gordon and Griffin), and orchestrated pop (Here Comes Yesterday Again). One of the best track is The Dweller, with flute and guitars, composed by Marcellino and Larson. It is beginning to interest some collectors. (Stephane Rebeschini). "The songs on this album show how two almost completely opposite musical talents combine and compliment each other, to produce an album that rambles with ease from folk material like "Good Times, Bad Times” and "Hello Sleepy Sidewalk” right across to pure rock in "Love Machine” Harper & Rowe cannot be placed in any particular bag. The more you listen, the more apparent this becomes…” (Album Liner)
