Customer Reviews

This is the best LP that Clapton made.
Salducci
This version of "Why Does Love" alone makes "In Concert" worth tracking down, even if you already have "Live at the Fillmore".
Tamouz
Derek & the Dominos live, whether it be In Concert or Live at the Fillmore, is Eric Clapton at his best live.

The most important difference between "In Concert" and "Live At The Fillmore" is that this album contains the version of "Why Does Love Got To Be So Sad" that was on the original release. Absolutely some of the best, most singular and unique playing of Eric Clapton's career. His chops were way up and he was obviously "in the zone", playing two long solos with a passionate, intense, imaginative flow of improvisation that is different than anything else he's ever recorded. It is unconscienable that some genius producer replaced this version with the much more pedestrian version on "Live At The Fillmore". It's as though he never even listened to the original release, and he certainly couldn't have been a guitarist. Simply put, if you like Eric's guitar playing you absolutely have to hear this version of "Why Does Love Got To Be So Sad".

The 'In Concert' discs from Derek (aka Eric Clapton) & the Dominos stand as one of the finest live rock recordings of all time. If you own the 'Live At The Fillmore' discs, however, owning these particular recordings may be superfluous. The 'Live At The Fillmore' recordings are available in abundance, and the price is agreeable. 'In Concert' discs, though more readily available with the recent appearance of a reasonably priced Japanese import, still are selling for double the price. Given the nominal distinctions, most customers, though not all collectors, should opt for the less costly (and in many ways more rewarding) 'Live At The Fillmore' version.

The vinyl 'In Concert' albums predated the 'Live At The Fillmore' CD's by two decades, so a lot of baby boomers have a penchant for the former discs, even though both owe their origins to recordings made over two evenings at The Fillmore East in October of 1970. Clapton was at the absolute peak of his career, with a compelling catalog of songs to draw from, and a talent untainted by the excessive drug usage that would soon put his career on hold for much of the early 1970's. The 'In Concert' discs offer expansive renditions of tracks from his first solo album ('Let It Rain', 'Bottle of Red Wine' and 'Blues Power'), his double studio album titled 'Layla' ('Why Does Love Got To Be So Sad', 'Tell the Truth', and the bluesy 'Have You Ever Loved a Woman'), Blind Faith ('Presence of the Lord') and two tracks that were originals, 'Got To Get Better In a Little While' and 'Roll It Over'.

The 'In Concert' discs only offer three differences from the 'Live At The Fillmore' release.

"In Concert" was the live album released as a sort of companion to the Layla masterpiece. I own it as an LP. It features Eric Clapton on guitar, Bobby Whitlock on the keyboards and great backing vocals, Carl Radle on the bass, and the great Jim Gordon on drums. Two all-worlders in Gordon and Clapton, and two very, very solid, experienced sidemen in Whitlock and Radle. A fine band indeed, but not as good as the one on "Layla" because of the lack of guitar virtuoso Duane Allman.

One of the main attractions of "Layla" is the stunning, awesome, incredible guitar interplay between Clapton and Allman. That is, sadly, absent from "In Concert". In fact, to enjoy this album you kind of have to think of THIS version differently from the one on "Layla". Not just in personnel, but in style as well.

This band is solid, smooth and polished, lacking that hard, raw edged power of the +Allman band. They play long jams, smoothly, professionally, and so easily they act like they're barely trying.

Clapton is great. Gordon is great. Whitlock and Radle add to Gordon to make a fantastic rhythm section. The album cruises along, featuring great playing by a band that was as tight as any ever. This recording shows that. As good a live recording of a great band as you will ever find.

5 Stars.

Amazon has listed the label for this as Mobile Fidelity Ultradisc; this is most certainly not that version. It is a South Korean release of the Polydor Records CD, and is the same as the US / UK version released years ago.

I still don't understand why they changed the version of "Why Does Love Got to Be So Sad?" for "Live at the Fillmore", and let the "In Concert" album go out of print. The "In Concert" version of "Why Does Love" is quite possibly one of my favorite recorded versions of anything ever. It's super funky, but so soulful that it'll make the hairs on your neck stand up and maybe bring tears to your eyes. The "Live At Fillmore" version just feels sloppier to me, and the "Layla" version is just plain silly.

This version of "Why Does Love" alone makes "In Concert" worth tracking down, even if you already have "Live at the Fillmore".

Folks, I had this as an album 25 years ago. I love the version of "why does love have to be sad" I was troubled for many years as I could not find the CD version. To me, this album is better than Filmore simply because it is a bit more raw and reminds me of album rock with a few concert flaws. it makes the versions of songs real and more unique. I would highly recommend this CD.
