Complete Clapton is a greatest hits collection by British rock musician Eric Clapton. The two-disc collection was released on 9 October 2007 to accompany Eric Clapton's autobiography, Clapton: The Autobiography, released that same year (see 2007 in music).

As with The Rolling Stones' Forty Licks, each disc has been compiled by different record companies: disc one, virtually identical to The Cream of Clapton by Polydor, and disc two by Warner Bros. Records.

The compilation debuted at number 14 on the U.S. Billboard 200, selling about 45,000 copies in its first week.[2]
