Geetarz Comments:

This was the first show of the 1979 tour, and the first gig with new band member Albert Lee.

This is a soundboard recording, not to be confused with the high generation audience recording in circulation.

EC gets a bit lost in the first verse of Crossroads, but finishes off with some great solos.

The band is plagued by some sort of PA/Equipment problems during "Key to the Highway".

The show features a nice hot performance of "Carnival", with some nice swirly Hammond B3.

Liner notes:  "The Forest National in Brussels, Belgium was never an attractive venue and being a hall made for cycling contests,
the acoustics were always challenging. However, the taper clearly knew where to position himself for this recording and the resulting tape is probably the best recording from that tour. For many fans, this tour remains as one of the most interesting because Eric was playing as a four piece. George Terry had left the band and this meant that all the guitar duties fell on Eric's shoulders. As such he played his ass off!  The gigs may have been shorter than one would have liked, but the performances were truly electric and remain one of the most interesting periods in Eric's concert history. This is another historic recording taken from the genuine master tapes obtained from the taper himself.  One interesting note here - with no second guitar player in the band, the Layla riff is played on the organ! Another impeccable Mid Valley release, and the definitive release of this performance. Upped exclusively for free trading and enjoyment by Yours Truly, ECMM"

Comments:

Here's another oldie but goodie, a classic from the "Golden Age of CD Bootlegs" when these were more readily available.

This is from the "Super Golden Radio Shows" label, released in 1991 (go ahead, try and tell me it's lossy), reading "Manufaatured in Italy for SGRS Records, 1991".

Interestingly, during this era these recordings were legal to create and sell in certain countries (Luxemborg, and Italy, for a couple), and if you look carefully you'll see the stamp on the back cover denoting this (centered on the "T" in "Eric ClapTon").

All that aside, this show is likely one of the most circulated Clapton performances of all time. This show was recorded and portions later broadcast on March 26, 1978 for the syndicated "King Biscuit Flower Hour".

Interestingly, one would assume that this is simply the radio broadcast portion of the performance, but Marc Roberty (Clapton: The Complete Recording Sessions) lists the following as being broadcast: (Peaches and diesel / Wonderful tonight / Lay down Sally / Next time you see her / Cocaine / Badge / Knockin' on heaven's door).

Many years later, when the label released "Crossroads 2: Live in the Seventies", the Powers That Be chose to include "The core", "Goin' down slow", and "Rambling on my mind" from this performance, but they are not included on this SGRS release.

A casual observation would lead one to conclude that this is identical to the Swingin' Pig release "American Tour '78" (TSP-CD-063) but in fact, it's not.  The TSP version does seem to be lightly remastered with some hiss reduction, while this version seems a bit crisper. This version also has a few fades that don't appear on the TSP edtion.

Comments:
An excellent audience recording, especially considering the era - far better and more listenable in fact than many aud recs from the 21st century!
Worth noting are an excellent instrumental jam performance on Disc 1, and an interesting performance of 'Crossroads'.
Listen carefully during the band's rendition of 'Mainline Florida' and you'll catch a hint of the 'Layla' riff as well as a tease of 'Motherless Children'.
This performance is also available in a slightly tweaked version on the Mid Valley release 'Joker'.
It's a fun show and a personal favorite, not to mention it's from the master - so play it loud and enjoy!

Geetarz Comments: The beginning of "Layla" is present at the end of the last track, but fades out shortly after it begins. I haven't directly compared this to "The Devil Knows You're Lost" which is another label's take on the same show; feedback would be welcomed.

Track List:
1) Badge
2) Presence of the Lord
3) Tell the Truth
4) Ramblin' on My Mind
5) Steady Rollin' Man
6) Blues Power

Comments:

One of the better 1974 shows available, both in performance and recording quality. Unlike many of the shows where the band (and their leader's) performance was uneven, this was one of those nights where everyone was at least articulate and coherent, if not "on fire". Rather than rote run-throughs of the setlist, there is some nice artistic expression here. At about 6:50 into 'Tell the Truth' the band goes into a funky vamp, which works out nicely, with a nice segue into "Hideaway" and the "Peter Gunn" theme into a spirited performance of "Ramblin' On My Mind". "Blues Power" also features some nice jamming by the band. Recommended.

Comments:
EC throws a tease of the "Killing Floor" riff into "Blues Power".
"Little Wing" is excellent, but incomplete with some issues in the tape source.
"Crossroads" is unique, with a different arrangement.
"Tell The Truth" is incomplete, missing the middle but a nice outro.

Geetarz Comments:

An excellent soundboard. "Have You Ever Loved a Woman" from this performance was officially released on "EC Was Here" and "Crossroads 2: Live in the Seventies" and is not included here.

Quality is excellent throughout, except for a marked decrease from the midpoint of "Little Queenie" through to the end, sounds like a problem in the analog source for this release.
