In your friend's case, it seems obvious that his love of music has to be the thing that should restore his will to go on living. The problem is, except for an appearance at George Harrison's Concert for Bangladesh, ca. 1 1/2 years earlier, the man hasn't appeared on stage, nor has he seen the inside of a recording studio. Before embarking on his slide into addiction, he has been part of a number of true supergroups; but everyone of them has disintegrated over time, many say before they had really had a chance to take off.Read more ›
I know that not everyone shares my fondness for Eric Clapton the bluesman-slash-rock singer rather than Eric Clapton the balladeer-slash-watered-down-blues-singer, but I remain convinced that this is one of the three or four greatest records Clapton has ever released.
"Eric Clapton's Rainbow Concert" is not a polished, highly produced affair; it is all gritty rock n' roll and smouldering blues, and Clapton is backed by star players like Pete Townshend, Ron Wood and Steve Winwood, and guest percussionist Rebop Kwaku Baah. And this all-star band, which has former Traffic-drummer Jim Capaldi on the swivel chair and the late Rick Gretch playing bass, leads Clapton through a dozen raw, ragged and superbly atmospheric renditions of his best songs of the 60s and 70s, including "Layla", "Bell Bottom Blues", "Key To The Highway" and "Blues Power".
Eric Clapton and the band play with passion and urgency, and Clapton himself sounds much more alive than on most live recordings.
If you like Eric Clapton at his grittiest, it doesn't get any better than this.

It just goes to show that, even at an all time low of his career, this man can play like no one else! It also didn't hurt to have such talented friends to back Mr. Clapton.Published 11 months ago by polar bear
I had this on Vinyl and loved it growing up as a budding guitarist. Now that it contains the whole concert and remastered, its awesome. The original record was very muddy sounding. Read morePublished 13 months ago by TheBigC
