Geetarz Comments:

This is probably one of, if not the, most oft-booted Clapton shows ever, and it’s dizzying trying to keep track of all the different versions, remasters, etc. Rather than tell you which version I think you should listen to, I prefer just to put ’em up and let YOU decide.

There are debates as to the lineage of this recording – some sources list it as a soundboard, others as an impeccable audience recording. I tend to believe it is the latter, but even if I am wrong, does it really matter? If I feed you something you think is chicken, as long as it tastes like chicken, you’re full and who cares? Just enjoy the meal.

For me personally this is the 2nd official ROIO I came across of this performance, and the Slowhand Masterfile, although a bit dated now, has always stood the test of time in my opinion as a very worthy collection.

Geetarz Comments:

Definitely one of the more “focused” of EC’s 1974 shows – in less polite terms, this is one of the ones where he was not drunk!

An excellent, very crispy soundboard, instruments and vocals are all very clear with good seperation, and very little hiss, you can
even hear EC’s amplifier buzz a bit in quieter passages.

Well-done mix, although the B3 is a tad too prominent, otherwise excellent. Recommended.

Geetarz Comments: Disc times are 62:51/44:25.

Also features Carlos Santana and John McLaughlin on guitar, and Alphonze Mouzon on drums, during the encore.

“Badge” and “I Shot the Sheriff” from this concert were officially released on the “Crossroads 2: Live in the Seventies” box set. Please note that this audience recording is not complete, to begin with it was missing “Sheriff” and “Can’t Find My Way Home”. To appease the DIME gods and prevent confusion from anyone stupid enough to confuse an officially released soundboard track with a pretty crappy audience recording, D1T3, “Badge” has been removed from this torrent. More information about the missing track(s) can be discussed on the ClaptonBoots group (http://launch.groups.yahoo.com/group/ClaptonBoots/).

Please note that although I have run across several different lineages of this recording, they have all been missing the same 2 tracks so at this point I think it’s a safe assumption to consider that they were not recorded, or at least the full recording is not to be found in the trading pool. I hope to be proven wrong, but in the meantime this is the best sounding recording of this historic concert that I have encountered.

Geetarz Comments:

The date on the CD jacket is incorrectly listed as July 14, 1974.

Remember the old days? I think this was one of the first CD boots I ever bought. Back then you’d have to wait for the post to bring
“Goldmine” magazine, which at that point was a roughly telephone sized tabloid (well, I exaggerate) and if you spent hours poring
over the ads you’d come across cryptic titles, send your postal money order to Germany, or Luxembourg, or Italy ($25/single,
$50/double, plus postage) and wait, and if you were lucky, a couple of months later you’d get a package in the mail and voila! You’d
have some idea of what you had just purchased.

Back then the idea of just having tons of cool stuff available at your fingertips on a torrent site was the thing of science fiction.
Not to mention having so much information and feedback easily available.

So here it is, a fun show. I certainly enjoyed playing it today, and I hope you do, too!

An audience member threw a beer bottle at the stage before the show started & it hit
Yvonne Elliman in the hand. Clapton was pissed and almost folded the show.
She performed the show with a bandaged hand.

Eric speaks to the audience about the incident at about 3:50 into the intro:
“I want the guy that threw the beer bottle to know that he hurt one of my people.
So don’t throw things, please don’t throw things at us.”

The second song, “Don’t Have To Hurt Nobody” was an impromptu jam inspired by the incident.

During “Willie and the Handjive/Get Ready”, Yvonne sings “throwing your fucking bottles” at about 6:20.

A 24-bit/96-KHz flac24 version of this recording is also available.

Warning/Disclaimer: This recording should not be confused with the series labelled “The Dan Lampinski Tapes Volume XX”. This recording represents part of Dan’s earliest efforts to capture the live concert experience for posterity, hence the series name “Dan Lampinski – The Early Years Volume XX”. Given the very consistent high quality of Dan’s later work, it would have been easy to blow off these recordings and consign them to the dustbin of history, but there are quite a few captures in the series that are well worth circulating, if not for their rarity, but for the obsessive collector types (we know who we are) that want every single second of any recordings of their favourite musicians. So please, just accept these recordings for what they are, another part of the tapestry we weave when we collect and share such things.

Since Dan never traded copies of his recordings, they are all essentially uncirculated. Some copies were made for friends, but these releases are the first time most of these recordings have ever seen the light of day, and are direct from his master cassettes. No EQ’ing has been done to any of the transfers. Feel free to EQ, matrix, patch, etc and re-post if you like, just give Dan credit for the original recording.

Dan was very meticulous about taking good care of his tapes and is very pleased that these recordings will now circulate among the trading community. Please honour his kindness and generosity by sharing these recordings freely.

The transfers are available as 16bit/44.1KHz flac files suitable for CD burning, and also as 24bit/96KHz flac files for those who prefer the higher resolution.

Always remember – the more generous you are with your music, the more it comes back to you.
