AllMusic Review by

Laserlight's Eric Clapton & Friends weighs in at two discs and 32 tracks, containing the great majority of the stray early sessions that get recycled endlessly on budget-line comps like this. Most of this consists either of live Yardbirds' material and other Yardbirds' oddities, but there's also the 1965 jam session credited to the Immediate All Stars (featuring Clapton, Jimmy Page, Bill Wyman, Ian Stuart, and Mick Jagger). None of this is great Clapton but this is an easy way to get a bunch of it for cheap -- although that also means that the collection itself looks and sounds a little cheap too.
