The sound quality on this DVD is superb. As it should be, because the incredible TONES Clapton coaxes out of his guitar and amp are that which most guitar players would kill for.
The image quality is also outstanding, very clear and sharp. The camera work is great, with LOTS of closeups of EC and his guitar during the solos, which is an added treat for guitar junkies (myself included.)
For my money, this is the BEST Eric Clapton concert film available. If you're an Eric Clapton fan, this DVD is the one to get.
(NOTE: The DVD edition contains two songs not included on the VHS version: smoldering renditions of "Hoochie Coochie Man" and "It Hurts Me Too".)
The set list also includes "Wonderful Tonight," "Five Long Years," "Tore Down," "White Room," and the acoustic version of "Layla," although when buying this video I had hoped it to be the original version. Still great, though.
I never tire of watching this tape. I'd be interested in how it compares to the 24 Nights video; I'm sure they are very similar. Hard to believe, though, how one man can play the guitar so well for so long and still manage to come up with new and inventive material for his solos show after show. This is a must-have for all EC fans.
Layla - Acoustic version.......well done.
Badge - EC takes the blue strat from here.
Hoocie Coochie man - EC plays this track on every DVD and i have grown a bit bored of it.Good harmonica solo here.
I shot the sheriff - My fave track.Great solo from Eric.sizzling stuff!
It hurts me too - Great slide work from EC on this Elmore James number.switches to a gibson hollowbody.
Wonderful Tonight - staple Clapton stuff...nothing special.
Five long years - another awesome blues numbr.Eric's strat sets it alight....another great solo.
Tearin us apart - EC does this number with backing vocalist Kim Kasoon (who does tina turner's part).I love this one....good vocals,good beat and again nice solo.
Old Love - "I can feel your body..."...nice song.EC keeps it simple during the verses and ends with a pasionate solo.
I'm torn down - Freddie king number.EC gets his ES-335 out and emulates one of his heroes.i got hooked to Freddie after hearing this one.
Have you really loved a woman - Another Ec blues standard.He again puts out scorching solos on his Cherry 335 but somehow for me the rendition with duane allman will always remain at different level.
White room - Late Cream number.this has a Wah-Wah solo with andy fairweather singing along.The version from 24 nights is better.
Everday i have the blues - A fast paced blues number.
Holy Mother - the encore backed by choir.
Overall this is best EC DVD out there.Get one and you wont be dissapointed.nothing beats Clapton live !!
