Geetarz Comments:

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.

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.

This was an outdoor show that featured Ross, Foghat, Lynyrd Skynyrd and Eric Clapton.
The version of Crossroads here is very unusual, even for this tour.

This show was included in inferior quality on the 3CD boot “Three Smiles”. The version
on that set is 4 minutes longer only because the tape runs slow.

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.
