Editorial Reviews

Eric Clapton has achieved the seemingly impossible, becoming more popular in his most recent 10 years onstage than in his first decade in the spotlight. His 1997 Live In Hyde Park home video documented a triumphant concert of the previous summer that followed his massive "Tears In Heaven" hit a few years earlier. This is classic rockin' and guitar-wailin' blues-is-king Clapton, from new versions of his Derek and The Dominos' "Layla" and "Have You Ever Loved a Woman" to Cream's "White Room" and "Badge" to his solo hit of Bob Marley's "I Shot the Sheriff" to B.B. King's "Every Day I Have the Blues." Added to the original home video's lineup is Clapton's rendition of the Muddy Waters electric blues "Hoochie Coochie Man" and the blues standard "It Hurts Me Too," which Clapton reprised on From the Cradle. Other tracks include: Wonderful Tonight; Five Long Years; Tearin' Us Apart; Old Love; I'm Torn Down; Holy Mother. 89 minutes.

5.0 out of 5 stars Not Just Another Night June 14, 2002
Format:DVD
This is Eric Clapton at his best. EC has not played with this much fire and intensity since the 70's, including his Derek And The Domino's days. His guitar playing is absolutely FEROCIOUS...which probably shouldn't come as a big surprise, as this concert took place during his 'Back To The Cradle' period, his most convincing and inspired studio album in ages.
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".)
HIGHLY RECOMMENDED.

Format:VHS Tape
This concert video is for those people who think that the Clapton of the 90s has lost his guitar skills. The reason why everyone does not know how great he is, is because in the mid to late 90s Clapton's best work, especially live, has been blinded by todays teen pop. I have listened to every live album of Clapton's I could find. Eric Clapton is one of the greatest live performers and in my book the greatest guitarist, technically and for me emotionally. I have looked sincerely into countless guitarists and solos. Old love and I shot the sherriff in this concert are among the best solos i have heard ever. Five long years is great too, if you have patience. And those of you are wondering why this old, skinny white guy with glasses who did that slow song about his son is revered as one of the best guitarists in the world, this video is for you. Great music today has to be searched for. And if you are reading this review, you have found it.

5.0 out of 5 stars In a word: Brilliant December 26, 1998
By A Customer
Format:VHS Tape
Well, any doubts about Clapton's ability to crank out awe-inspiring blues guitar are put to death here. This video takes you through an entire Clapton concert from the summer of 1996, and EC is definitely on-target. ALL of the songs are played terrifically, although the standouts to me are "Have You Ever Loved a Woman" (for the solo), "I Shot the Sheriff" (again, great solo), and "Badge."
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.

5.0 out of 5 stars Live Clapton Sizzles!! Must Buy !! August 26, 2004
By Beano
Format:DVD
This is 1996,Eric Clapton at Hyde Park for the Prince's Trust.And what a show he puts out!!Brilliant!!The picture and sound quality of the DVD is great.the backing band includes andy fairwetaher Low,Dave Bronze,Steve and Chris Stainton.Let me just run through the tracks-

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 !!

5.0 out of 5 stars Amazing sound and picture July 16, 2002
Format:DVD|Verified Purchase
This concert is one of the first complete performances of Eric released in DVD. With amazing and crisp sound and picture, it represents a true document on contemporary music for future generations. Eric performs his classic tunes like Badge and Acoustic Layla plus great blues songs like Five Long Years and Tore Down. Here we see a Slowhand in top notch shape, soloing greatly, and singing with a lotta feeling, like a true blues man. This concert was taped in Hyde Park in 1996, in the midst of a heavy rain, which did not manage to scare away the thousands of souls touched by Eric's music. There are virtually no behind the scenes or interviews footage, which would've been great, but one addition to the DVD is the the classic blues It Hurts me Too, with great slide guitar by the amster. Don't let it pass, I can honestly say this is the best E.C. DVD out yet.
