When Eric Clapton is playing, one forget about his outragously stupid outbirsts over this or that. This might be a great release, based on the tracklisting. "Golden Ring".....has he ever performed that one, live?

Not that I am aware of but I don't really collect EC bootlegs. "Golden Ring" definitely is a deep cut and "Backless" is an under rated album IMO.

He gives a nod to the late Peter Green as well with Black Magic Woman and Man Of The World.

Never ever — even once.

Of particular interest is, sometime ago when Eric was asked to pick ten favorite songs that he had recorded and released, Golden Ring (from Backless) and Believe In Life (from Reptile) were included there. Both songs have never been played live to this day so this is the first occasion they are given live outings...even “behind closed doors”.

Who said the setlist was full of warhorses, a bore like the Stones’ one?

Thanks for confirming, both you and terraplane. It's a very interesting setlist, for sure. Backless, it doesn't show Clapton as the guitarplayer he really is, and it's got some quite boring tracks. Yet, it has some real nuggets, and I tend to listen to this album every now and then. "Golden Ring" "Promises" and "Tulsa Time" are some of the reasons, Though "Tulsa Time" was even better on "Just One Night"

"I'd Make Love To You Any Time" is the highlight, but the thing is that JJ Cale's version is better, I listen a lot more to him than I do to Clapton, when it comes to studio recordings of the 70s and 80s.

If I Don't Be There By Morning is another great track from Backless. I agree though that it is hard to beat the versions on Just One Night with Albert Lee playing along.

Backless is a mixed bag. It’s not my personal favorite among the post-461 Clapton albums — shows the inspiration running out from the Tulsa Tops, his then outfit. Backless indeed.

This track and 'Tell Me That You Love Me' - If you replaced Eric's vocals with Mick Jagger's then these tracks wouldn't be that far removed from something you would hear on Voodoo Lounge

Best track off of Backless imo, though there are several other great ones:

Yeah, "Watch Our for Lucy" is great! So is "I'd Make Love to You Anytime", "Golden Ring", "If I Don't Be There By Morning", also "Promises." I enjoy the whole Album/CD. My favorite though would be "Tell Me That You Love Me."

On the new upcoming release I am really looking forward to hearing the Peter Green-era Fleetwood Mac tracks “Black Magic Woman” and “Man of the World.”

Here is a link from "Where's Eric!" website with some more info on the new release:

So...Clapton commences the eight-date Southern U.S. tour today (the 13th). What are the safe measures of these concerts?

Hey Eric. Always loved you and your music. You lived a tough life and can talk about what you have been through. Well I have too in many ways. You’re a multi millionaire with a car collection that people can only dream of You’ve met kings and queens and some of the greatest. Now do me a favor just shut up. You have nothing to bitch about.

To me, losing use of his hands (which could have been permanent) from taking a 'vaccine' which was said (to him) to be harmless sounds like grounds. Or isn't he allowed to share his experience?

He’s been talking about neoropathy for awhile. Pre covid. Now he’s out on tour and recording. He hasn’t been on a respirator he hasn’t been hospitalized. Just another whiny multi multi millionaire. Maybe all those years of playing drinking and drugs caused a flare up. I’m sure he can grip the wheel on one of his 10 Ferraris.

Agreed 100%. He has had neuropathy for years and even announced he was going to stop touring because of it. If he was unvaxxed and caught it he would have ended up like John Prine and Toots Hibbard. The odds of him completing this tour unvaxxed and healthy would have been quite low as well.

First Clapton tour I have missed in a long time and don't feel bad about it.

He had neuropathy for years before he took the vaccine.

Yes, in fact he was open about it. The main point he was making is that he was led to believe the vaccine was safe for everyone but in hindsight, he never should have taken the vaccine.


“Needless to say the reactions were disastrous, my hands and feet were either frozen, numb or burning, and pretty much useless for two weeks, I feared I would never play again.”

Clapton added that he suffered from peripheral neuropathy, which is described as a condition that results when nerves that carry messages to and from the brain and spinal cord from and to the rest of the body are damaged or diseased.

The rockstar admitted he “should’ve never gone near the needle,” but the “propaganda said the vaccine was safe for everyone.

That's why we know it's BS. All of those symptoms are signs of neuropathy.

I know this first hand, as I've had the same symptoms as a side effect of chemo therapy.

14 song setlist of which four are acoustic . Yuck and bore ( playing acoustic ) I am a super mega EC fan . I remember a Concert Caravan Bus trip in 1994 during the From The Cradle tour ( great killer blues album ) so on the bus a lady turns and asks me if he will do Tears in Heaven ? That was the mentality in the early to mid 90's of that type of snooze fest /track . EC to me is so boring and dare I say elevator back ground music when he is playing acoustic . I know this sounds harsh , but on acoustic the listener is robbed of hearing EC signature vibrato and his work up and down the fretboard . I am spoiled as I prefer him playing a Gibson , but I will take a Fender . One of the all time best in the traditional 12 bar blues . Who can forget his killer work while in the super group CREAM . The Beano album with John Mayal's Blues Breakers -does not get any better than that !

Re: OT: Eric Clapton stuff

Agreed, not much there to get excited about. I know some people like it but turning Layla into an acoustic song was awful.

on 'unplugged' he says 'see if we can spoil this one' before plays 'Layla'. Well, he succeeded

Firstly, sorry to hear about your troubles. I have read about the link between chemotherapy and peripheral neuropathy.

There is also a link between COVID vaccines and peripheral neuropathy. John Hopkins says:

Many patients ask if they should get the COVID-19 vaccine, particularly if they have peripheral neuropathy. FPN’s Scientific Advisory Board Chairman, Dr. Ahmet Hoke of Johns Hopkins University, encourages patients to get the COVID-19 vaccine when offered. “The risks of COVID-19 far outweigh the risks of developing increased or new PN symptoms,” states Hoke.

Maybe Eric was one of the unlucky ones?

hm, I always heard and still hear "spoil" and I thought/think he was joking. Anyway: I'm not a native English speaker… Still "spoil" makes more sense (a Freudian slip of the tongue?)

He was ironic smiling smiley «See if you can spot this one»
