From the Cradle is the fourteenth studio album by Eric Clapton, released in 1994.

Intended as a love letter to 1950s bluesmen, the album was designed to recreate the originals with a "live-in-studio" gimmick behind Clapton, whose vocals also mimicked the original performances.

Coming on the heels of the guitarist's runaway MTV Unplugged success, From the Cradle topped the Billboard charts and ran off with the "Best Traditional Blues Recording" Grammy despite mixed reviews. Even supportive critics like George Starostin (who oddly asserts it as Clapton's best album) complained about the contrived vocals; on the flip side, however, even harsher critics were full of praise for the guitar work.
