There’s One in Every Crowd is Eric Clapton’s third solo album and was originally recorded between 1974 and 1975. After the success of his single covering Bob Marley’s “I Shot the Sheriff” in his previous album 461 Ocean Boulevard, Clapton recorded a few reggae style songs (“Swing Low, Sweet Chariot,” “Don’t Blame Me” and “Little Rachel”) while the remaining titles were blues/rock. The album hit number 21 on the Billboard 200 chart and his single “Swing Low, Sweet Chariot” reached 19 on the UK’s Top 40 in 1975.

Having stayed out of the recording studio for four years prior to making his comeback album, 461 Ocean Boulevard, Eric Clapton returned to recording only a few months later to make its follow-up, There’s One in Every Crowd. Perhaps he hadn’t had time to write or gather sufficient material to make a similarly effective album, since the result is a scattershot mixture of styles, leading off with two gospel tunes, one a reggae version of “Swing Low, Sweet Chariot.” Clapton and his second guitarist, George Terry, had written a sequel to “I Shot the Sheriff,” “Don’t Blame Me,” which Clapton sang in his best impersonation of Bob Marley’s voice. The album’s best track, naturally, was the blues cover, Clapton’s take on Elmore James’ “The Sky Is Crying.” But There’s One in Every Crowd was a disappointing follow-up to 461 Ocean Boulevard, and fans let Clapton know it: while the former album had topped the charts and gone gold, the latter didn’t even make the Top Ten. -William Ruhlmann
