Location: Twin Cities. Manic Mechanic , Apr 17, Location: Irvine, CA. This underrated set from is the best two-disc set out there IMO. Released a year after his highly-praised Journeyman album, and a year before the Unplugged CD, one will find no acoustic numbers here. The Cream tracks absolutely smoke, and the rarely played "Bell Bottom Blues" is incredible!
Repeated listening is highly recommended. Location: East of the Sun and West of the Moon I'm partial to this one recorded in , a good survey of his career. He was in good voice, a nice, slow, soulful reading of "Wonderful Tonight". Released in Richard the one in Texas , Apr 17, Location: Springwater, New York, U.
Now before you think I am just picking on him, let me put out some good points about him. He is, unquestionably, a fantastic guitarist. Cream and to a lesser extent The Yardbirds [less than the sum of its parts] was a fantastic band. These are things he should be praised for. The rest of this list, however; prove that anyone that sees him should legally be allowed to beat him just hard enough so that no permanent damage is done that way his life is just constant pain and fear without the release of sweet, sweet death.
Just to show how awful a person Clapton is, only two of these five reasons are about his music. And I really, really hate his post-Cream music. I might not be able to find five of them. Think of an Eric Clapton song.
If it is not a cover then it probably falls into the category I will be covering in reason three. Clapton would have been inducted into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame a record-breaking fourth time if he had joined The Band.
Clapton and The Yardbirds were at odds when they wanted to make a hit, and Clapton wanted nothing to do with it. During the Spring of , Clapton switched to a Gibson Firebird with a single pick-up. But, at the band's debut performance in London?
Eric Clapton also used a Crybaby wah-wah pedal at this time. His Fender Stratocaster of choice was "Blackie", with the tobacco sunburst "Brownie" on standby.
For his Behind the Sun Tour, his stage rig grew tremendously. Eric Clapton just rose from the ashes with ease and comfort.
You could feel his confidence and sincerity coming out of every note. The audience already knew and loved Clapton but this stripped down album, featuring new interpretations of his classics gave them a new perspective.
This album revitalized his career and I think it helped him move on with his life, after the tragic loss of his son. On top of it all, the biggest musical force — MTV , was backing him up.
