Notes from the original uploader: The deck was shut off between songs (no pause button) resulting in a few songs that are slightly clipped at the start.

Early Show: Caveat Auditor… the sound is distant with extensive crowd noise that is over-powering at times. The sound quality improves at 3:09 in Deep Elem.

Late Show: The taper was seated in the first few rows, close to the stage, resulting in a much better recording. There’s a very brief tape-speed problem in FOTD at 0:26.

Geetarz Comments:
Okay, we’re talking “essential”, right? After the success of the late 1980s and early 1990s – especially “Unplugged” – EC was finally free to pursue his passion, blues! After testing the waters with some “all blues” nights at the Royal Albert Hall, and then the mixed blues/pop/rock sets from 1993, in 1994 it was time to jump in all the way. After a long summer arena tour with a setlist consisting only of his favorite blues numbers, in early November Clapton set out on a mini-tour of not arenas, not sheds, but small clubs – the places where this music was born, and meant to be played. The first three nights were also notable, as on November 7/8/9 they took place at the Fillmore, in San Francisco, and were recorded and filmed for a movie by acclaimed director Martin Scorcese. This night, the first of the three night run, was recorded on videotape by the crew so that they could plan their camera moves and “blocking” for the remaining two nights. The videotape source has been available to collectors in varying quality for years, and has been used as the source for several boots, perhaps the most notable of which is “Blues From the Heart” (Parrott / Red Robin). The folks at 3BR obtained access to a very low generation, much cleaner source than used for “Blues From the Heart”, and after a bunch of work, released the result as “Blues At the Fillmore” for fans. Even if you already have a copy of this title, this may be a nice upgrade for you, direct from the masters with known lineage.
