Editorial Reviews

On July 30, 1999, Eric Clapton put together a stellar band and invited a few friends--Bob Dylan, Sheryl Crow, Mary J. Blige, and David Sanborn--to perform a one-night-only concert in New York City's Madison Square Garden as a benefit for Clapton's Crossroads Centre at Antigua. 170 minutes.

2.0 out of 5 stars A great concert to attend, only a mediocre one to buy. December 23, 1999
Format:DVD
I was at the epic length concert on June 30, 1999 (not July 30, as mistakenly written on this site), and I had a wonderful time listening to some of the most incredible guitar playing I'd ever heard. I was overjoyed to hear that a video/DVD of the show would be released, but I was very disappointed with the actual product. The concert lasted over three hours, and Amazon.com notes that the DVD/video is 170 minutes in their review, yet it is only 108 minutes! More than an hour of music has been cut out by the manufacturers, including what I believed to be the highlights of the show. Gone are Eric Clapton's "My Father's Eyes", "Pilgrim", Sheryl Crow's "Run Baby Run", "Leaving Las Vegas", "If It Makes You Happy", and Bob Dylan's "Not Dark Yet", "Leopard-Skin Pill-Box Hat". Gone is the showstopping duet of between Dylan and Clapton of "Born In Time", a song Dylan wrote in 1991 that was covered by Clapton on his most recent album. Instead, what the producers of this DVD and video have put out are solid performanes of songs that have already been released on live albums and videos countless times. Sure, I enjoy hearing "Layla", "Sunshine Of Your Love", "Tears In Heaven", "Wonderful Tonight", and "Old Love", but I have them live on other Clapton live releases, and they sound very much the same; I would have rathered to have selections that no other live recording is avaliable of, or even better, the entire concert. DVDs can hold 4-8 hours, so there's no reason why they couldn't have included everything. Read more ›

4.0 out of 5 stars Uncommon Presentation January 2, 2004
By M. Best
Format:DVD
I adore Clapton, and own all of his DVD's. I have to rate this one at the bottom of the list, though it is worth the purchase just to get the rare "Little Wing" performance. He uses the same arrangement/approach that the Dominos used, and it is good. After that, I have to agree with the other reviews here that critise the choices of selections from the concert that ended up on the DVD. I would really enjoy seeing the songs that were deleted, rather than the great, but oft repeated warhorses like "Sunshine of Your Love", and yet another "Tears in Heaven." There are just so many wonderful choices in his past repetoire that he NEVER performs now like "Strange Brew", "Forever Man", or "I Am Yours" that would be precious to many of his fans! But to avoid misunderstanding, I must say that what is here is predominantly great. (The only blatant exception being the horror of what is done to the usually poignant "Old Love" by a keyboardist that I have never seen with him before. I "skip" over that song always!)
The guests are somewhat unusual, though mostly pleasing. Sheryl Crow is fine, Bob Dylan is excellent, Dave Sanborn is probably good, (I rarely take note of horns), but the Mary Blige section is, ...well, ...unexpected!.
Clapton's backing band is mostly the same folks that are usually with him; Andy Fairweather-Low, Steve Gadd, and Nathan East with Katie Kissoon & Tessa Niles. They are always enjoyable to hear. (He later dropped the girls from his 2002 tour, and I missed them on "One More Car"/Rider). I have read that he sometimes determines his song selections according to the capabilities of his backing group. If that is so, then I would appreciate a little variety in the players he recruits - time is moving on, and I would love to hear/see him do some of the afformentioned tunes before he hangs up his new, graphic strat forever!

5.0 out of 5 stars Spectacular June 12, 2002
Format:DVD
Well, I loved this DVD. From "Layla" (which, might I add, is not predictable, seeing as how it's the first time he's played the Derek and the Dominos version of the song in who knows how long) to "River of Tears", this is a great concert. The guest artists are excellent. Sheryl Crow and Clapton sound wonderful together, and I was glad to see her there. Mary J. Blige... I don't know, if it suits your fancy... and Bob Dylan was excellent if you like Bob Dylan, as I do. David Sanborn, one of the best rock saxophone players today, is an excellent addition to the house band, which includes standards like Nathan East, Steve Gadd, Andy Fairweather-Low, Tessa Niles, and Katie Kissoon, plus Tim Carmon, a great keyboard player who makes his keyboard solo sound like a guitar solo in "Old Love", and Dave Delhomme, who just sits and plays keyboards. Great companion to "Live in Hyde Park".

3.0 out of 5 stars Some Good Performances November 10, 2003
Format:DVD|Verified Purchase
There are excellent performances by Clapton, Sanborn & Crow. The Blige and Dylan performances were not so good. A mixed bag. The other Clapton dvd's are probably better. Not a keeper but a good 1 off rental.

5.0 out of 5 stars Clapton rocks the Garden February 8, 2000
Format:VHS Tape
I attended this concert, and this production is faithful to the performance. I particularly enjoyed Hoochie Coochie Man, a blistering rendition of the Muddy Waters classic. David Sanborn highlights Little Wing, an Eric Clapton/Sheryl Crow duet, with some inspired sax. The rest of the show was so good that Bob Dylan's introduction for the final set was almost an anticlimax. I highly recommend this disc, I have played it almost every night since I acquired it.

5.0 out of 5 stars Very Classic but very good DVD
Five stars, because Eric Clapton is five stars.
But in this case with Friends, listen like Sheril Craw and others sounds very well.
