The Tension and the Spark Although Clapton and his band were intoxicated nearly all the time when recording, Johns liked Clapton's work and brought out the best in every musician, according to Clapton.
The album was titled after Clapton's nickname, which was given to him by Giorgio Gomelsky. In his autobiography, Clapton recalled that the name "Slowhand" seemed to be hanging on to his real name, because it seemed to be well received by both his American friends and fans who think of the Wild West when hearing the nickname.
Besides choosing various photos for the inner side of the gramophone record packaging are two pictures, Clapton notes, which have deeper importance to him: one picture, in which he kisses Boyd and another photograph showing a demolished Ferrari GT4 BB , which Clapton bought after seeing George Harrison turning up with the same model at his Hurtwood Edge Estate.
