Eric Clapton gets Marley remixed Image

by Biko Kennedy

Guitar star Eric Clapton's Slowhand's 1974 version of 'I Shot the Sheriff' is probably the most omnipresent Bob Marley cover there is. Thirty nine years later Clapton grabs the producing ear of Damian and Stephen Marley for a one drop mix of his single 'Every Little Thing'.

Clapton's cover was the first Marley-written tune to chart in the U.S and garner much of its earliest mainstream exposure. To this day, it's the only Clapton single (solo or otherwise) to hit No. 1 on the Billboard Hot 100, and the only Marley composition to do so as well.

This new collaborative effort sees the Marley brothers remixing the track Every Little Thing with a more Reggae-tangled backdrop; further pointing to Clapton's evident nod to Bob Marley & the Wailers' 1977 hit single Three Little Birds.

Every Little Thing appears on Clapton's March-released LP, Old Sock, and speaks on a love reflective of no wrongs.
