The 1988 Tour celebrated Clapton’s 25th Anniversary in the music
business, and coincided with the resurgence of classic roots rock
and blues in the public eye. The tour was received warmly, and the
crowd in Phildelphia was off the hook, which really took the energy
level of the band up a notch as well.
Sourced from a low generation copy of a pro-shot Video in wide
circulation among collectors – then remastered by the 3BR team.
Great, crisp soundboard recording. The mix, in particular, is very
up-front and close-miked.
IMO, this is superior to the Tarantura release “Vivela Slowhand”,
which apears to have been sourced from a lower quality, higher-
generation source and suffers from a bit of VHS tracking noise.
