By Steve Ramm TOP 100 REVIEWER on October 26, 2014
Format: Blu-ray
As he approached his 70th birthday and - for the first time in his career - was considering ending world tours, Eric Clapton scheduled a tour of seven performances in four cities in Japan, Malaysia, Dubai and Bahrain in February 2014. His concert in Japan would be his 200th concert there in 40 years! Filmmaker David Maxwell and his crew went along for the tour and the result is this 2 hour, 36 minute documentary/concert film.

We get to see Clapton and his band - with Steve Gadd on drums and Nathan East on bass - perform 13 songs (and we hear a 14th song over the end credits) which are intercut with a segments from a lengthy ono-on-one iterview that Maxwell had with Clapton throughout the tour. There isn't much discussion of Clapton's career or his family life; it revolves around his connection with Japan and the Japanese impresario - "Mr. Udo" (firsr name never mentioned) - who has booked him for 40 years. Clapton also discusses his thoughts on aging - though he never says that this will be his last tour to the Far East.

The HD photography is great on the Blu-ray with some really nice close-ups - though there are some moments during the first two performances where Maxwell includes shots taken from far away with what appears to be a shaky hand-held camera. (But these only happen at the beginning).

Of course Clapton plays his hits - the ones you've heard many times over - "Layla", "I Shot the Sheriff", "Tears In Heaven" and "Crossroads" are here. Longtime fans will notice the nuances but for the rest, it's just another well-filmed concert performance.

I just received and finished watching my EC DVD. I didn`t have high expectations, reading the set list beforehand, and reading a reviewer previously, who thought Eric was going thru the motions, I was prepared for a ho-hum, dry film. I can say that I was very pleasantly surprised, and really enjoyed this one. I have been a fan for over 40 years, ever since I started seriously getting into music. He is the main reason I took up the guitar 35 years ago. In the last 10 to 15 years, despite being a hard working musician, Clapton has admittedly become artistically "lazy" ( his words) it`s why he hasn`t written many songs lately. And at times he does seem at times to be going thru the motions and unwilling to push his talents. Happily that is not the case here, he definitely is not going thru the motions. He plays some superb solo`s and plays with verve. So this makes up for the standard material ( it would be great if he came up with some new songs tailor made for the concert experience). I could do without Tears in heaven ( a beautiful song, but too much of a downer for a live concert) and also Cocaine. But the solo on I Shot The Sheriff is great, that song always brings out his talents, and he goes above and beyond on this one! I think these performances really shine in the DVD mode, as opposed to seeing him in an arena. His setlist really is made for a club or theatre situation, so the film puts you front and center, so you can appreciate it more as opposed to sitting in Madison Square Garden 200 feet away. Also the behind the scenes really gives a feeling of comraderie and closeness Eric has with his bandmates. You can see what a nice guy Clapton is. He is very close with the Japanese Promoter, Mr. Udo. I think this film captures something, basically that Eric can still really play, and that he`s a nice guy. So this longtime EC fan really appreciates it and gives it a thumbs up!

I've only been a Clapton fan for the better part of 13 years and being only 26 years old I can't say I've seen him in his so called "prime" which many say was during his time with Cream, but there is so much more to him than that. I have seen Clapton a total of 7 times live and listened to everything he came out with including material never released and every time he is amazing.Some people say he goes through the motions and lets his backup signers do the work. Hell, if I ever live that long AND did what he has been doing for "FIFTY YEARS" I would need some help as well. People expect way too much no matter what it is in life. This is a shame. Watch his performance of "Sheriff" and "Queen of Spades" or the whole damn thing and you can see the fire is still there. He is a very gracious musician by even sharing his time with us fans even though he might think of us as a distraction or nuisance as he says in the movie. He loves what he does and this DVD/Blu Ray shows that he is still touring and wouldn't have what he does today without us fans. Don't get me wrong I love his past work so much. "Just One Night" is awesome as well as "Slowhand" and "461" which are just a few solo albums I love, and Cream is without a doubt the best band ever. But this is Clapton NOW, he is our current Clapton no matter how much you might say otherwise. For those people living in the past whom have already brushed him off; I feel sorry for you. Every time you see him in this video he plays most of his hits which is what most people see him for. There will come a time when he can't play guitar anymore like BB King and just talk the whole time (Watch Him Nowadays), but trust me he knows when his time is up and that time is not now and lets enjoy him while he still can play better than most of the guitar greats still with us from that era. Watch this film and you will know what I mean. CLAPTON IS GOD!!!
