Well, judging from the bootlegs and videos I have, the two had some great shows as well. My favourite live version of Layla (I heard doyens of them) comes from a Japanese gig from 1988 which was the same band essentially plus Elton John as a special guest. By the way, he had Keith guesting on Layla and Cocaine in 1986 once. There is a bootleg of that show.

The Blind Faith LP was often played by me when it was released, and I still find myself going back to it. The EC and Winwood guitars and wonderful. They cut some beautiful numbers. I think the soulfulness of Stevie Winwood probably made this album a great one. It has this dreamy feel to it. Funny, I like to listen to this one while working out. For me it doesn't matter what those guys did live together. The record kicks ass, and that's enough.

Well, as I have a lot Of EC shows I think I have also one from which some of this is taken. He was loaded on manz shows until 1983, but twhere this comes from is easily in the top 3 among the recorded ones / here he was overloadd so to say. Still, there are some briliant shows from this 74 tour, but much more briliant ones were in 75, late 77 and late 78.

To continue my train of thought in my first post in this thread, just think how daring an innocent song title like "Do What You Want" must have been sounding back then. Real hippie stuff!

Blind Faith: excellent album. I recommend the bonus disk edition for some cool alternates and formerly unreleased gems.

For those interested in Eric, I may list and send a few of my favourite post Cream boots here. Just let me know.

As for a rarity, I have seen a picture from a mid 70s gig in Japan where he plays a Tele.


Would love to get a list of your favourite post Cream Clapton shows.

It was Stevie Winwood that made that band for me. Can't Find My Way Home will always be one of my favorites. Somewhat agree with His Majesty that Ginger Baker was the wrong drummer for the project.


Can't Find My Way Home resonated in 1969 because I think a lot of people, especially the rock musicians, were getting burned out from the drugs, and feeling a little despair. It was a soothing balm with a sobering message underneath.

Soothing balm. Love that description! Couldn't speak for 1969 but the medicine was still working over a decade later when I discovered it. I wonder who the song was written for if anyone in particular?

I love the tour with Mark Knopfler in the late 80's. Some of the best renditions of EC's catalogue.

Superb album, with some excellent drumming from Ginger. Who just edges ahead of Charlie as my favourite drummer.

That's probably why I wasn't crazy about the record: the "laid back" aspect. I was predisposed to a furious guitar from EC, ala Cream.
