Another Ticket was recorded at the Compass Point Studios in Nassau, Bahamas and features fellow guitarist and country legend, Albert Lee.[1] The album was originally released as a gramophone record, accompanied by a music cassette. In 1990 the album was released on compact disc format[2] and was made available for digital music download in 1996.[3]

The studio album was successful in the charts, reaching the Top 40 in seven countries, three of which, it peaked in the Top 10.

In the United Kingdom, the release placed itself on position 18. In Germany and Sweden, the album reached number 26. In the Netherlands, Another Ticket peaked at 38.

Reception

In a retrospective review for AllMusic, William Ruhlmann feels that the album is "star-crossed", "not too shabby", and while it "wasn't great Clapton" it should have got more notice than it did.[1]Rolling Stone journalist John Piccarella notes: "It's about murder. As an artist often criticized for mellowing out, Eric Clapton has succeeded in making very popular music from an authentic and deeply tragic blues sensibility. He addresses both the heart and the charts in the same way: with a bullet."[4]
