Specialist label Audio Fidelity will issue an audiophile edition of Eric Clapton's album, Pilgrim, on Hybrid SACD. First released in 1998, it was the guitarist's first disc of original material since 1989's Journeyman. With 12 self-penned tracks, Clapton experimented heavily with drum machines, electronica, R&B and even utilized the string section of the London Session Orchestra. Tying it together is Clapton's trademark guitar work of great hooks and emotional melodies. In addition to the title track, the disc features the hit single "My Father's Eyes" and two songs that would go on to become live concert favorites: "River of Tears" and "She's Gone".
