Let It Grow (4:59)

Cover of The Cream of Clapton

From The Cream of Clapton and 70 other releases

Let It Grow was first released in 1974 on Clapton’s second album, 461 Ocean Boulevard, which was also his first album since he ended his three year drug addiction. It also appeared later in compilations like Crossroads and The Cream of Clapton. This track is mainly composed of guitar solos and is stated by Eric Clapton himself as being somewhat similar to Led Zeppelin’s ‘Stairway To Heaven’. The song starts quietly with Clapton singing some introspective lyrics referencing ‘Crossroads,’ which became a theme of his career after the early defining moment of Cream’s version of the song. Background singers Marcy Levy and Yvonne Elliman join Clapton on the chorus as the song builds. It comes to an instrumental climax at the end, with a building mellotron line over guitar arpeggios.

Standing at the crossroads, trying to read the signs
To tell me which way I should go to find the answer,
And all the time I know,
Plant your love and let it grow
