Aloha !

I'm a small Clapton fan myself, I've got a few albums from him and have seen him live several times now. None of his studio albums can live up to him live. The live album One More Car, One More Rider is a reflection of how he is now, though his directions of making music changes about every 5 years as he is very diverse.

It contains a classics, a few album cuts from Reptile (one of his latest studio albums) and some blues songs. The power in this live album is not that all songs sound as great as they did when they just were released, but the performance itself, Clapton does gives all songs his best shot. The show starts acoustic and slowly builds up to the electric climax with Cocaine, Layla and the Cream classic Sunshine Of Your Love.

This CD was released because Clapton said he wouldn't go on tour again as he's getting a little older now (he's turned 60 last birthday I think) and doesn't want to live in hotel rooms for so many months per year. That's why the setlist was so carefully chosen. However, as soon as he released a new blues album, a small tour was planned, because he simply couldn't give up playing live. I've seen him live on this tour and this is one of the first live CD's that actually shows what it was to be there. The atmosphere is exactly the same and simply brilliant, in my opinion.

Tracklist:
CD1:
1.Key To The Highway (acoustic)
2.Reptile
3.Got You On My Mind
4.Tears In Heaven
5.Bell Bottom Blues
6.Change The World
7.My Father's Eyes
8.River Of Tears
9.Goin' Down Slow
10.She's Gone

CD2:
1.I Want A Little Girl
2.Badge
3.Hoochie Coochie Man
4.Have You Ever Loved A Woman?
5.Cocaine
6.Wonderful Tonight
7.Layla
8.Sunshine Of Your Love
9.Over The Rainbow

Salaam Aleikum,
Sebastiaan

i agree with seb. that version of layla is absolutely fantastic, even though the song is cut from two different shows. as for studio stuff, my favourite is probably derek and the dominoes' 'layla and other assorted love songs'.

Are you sure it's from 2 different shows? What makes you think so?

Start with "The Cream of Eric Clapton" because that's probably got most of the well known hits and popular songs on it. When (not if) you like it then get another hits compilation album called "Clapton Chronicles". This features 15 completely different songs than "The Cream of..." including 'Tears in Heaven', 'Bad Love', 'Before You Accuse Me' and 'Layla Unplugged'. It's not as upbeat as "The Cream of..." but definately worth getting. If you like this then you could also try "Eric Clapton Unplugged" or "The Very Best of Cream", before Eric went solo. Although you might already have some of the songs and there's a lot of Blues music on that album, which might not be up your street.


You'll love Eric, enjoy! :P

Yeah I think a lot of the songs from Time Pieces though are on either Cream of... or Chronicles though.

the extended ending is exactly the same on the dvd as it is on the cd, yet the rest of the song isn't.

Hmm, I haven't noticed that. I thought they only cut a part off the beginning before the song actually starts. I'll check it out later this week, I thought the show was actually without almost any overdubs because Clapton was surprised about how good the show sounded.

Salaam Aleikum,
Sebastiaan
