CLAPTON ERIC & STEVE WINWOOD

BBC Review

Eric Clapton's millenium has seen him revisit many of his past glories. The Cream reunion gigs were a bona fide (if tense) treat while his pairings with BB King have yielded some easy going treats. Then, in 2008 he joined Steve Winwood on stage in New York and over two nights played a wide variety of old gems from which this double CD (and DVD) has been culled. Depending on whether you subscribe to the church of 'Slowhand' or consider him a reactionary guardian of something that wasn't his in the first place, this album will be a an easy ride through the past, or a yawnfest of epic proportions.

The album does hold many delights. Clapton's playing is as brimful of feeling as it ever was while it never strays too far from his purist path. What does invoke the magic is the combination with Winwood's voice and playing. Democratically sharing both soloing and vocal duties means that Live At Madison Square Gardens is as much a treat for fans of the ex-Spencer Davis prodigy. Three Winwood numbers (Glad, Dear Mr Fantasy and No Face, No Name, No Number) leave you praying for a Traffic reunion. Of course you get a few Blind Faith numbers. And given the abortive nature of the 'supergroup''s lifespan it's good to hear such under-appreciated material getting a new lick of paint.

But three Hendrix numbers (well, two plus Buddy Miles' fantastic Them Changes) and two by JJ Cale tell you all you really need to know about this prime slice of rock at its most classic. The guitars are as important as the voices, and the vibe is relaxed, respectful and never overly frenetic. It's like a cozy evening in with your two best mates, and none the worse for it. --Chris Jones

If you are familiar with Blind Faith and Traffic then no doubt you will buy this on the spot and you will not be disappointed, I promise.

However it is Voodoo Chile which is well worth the price of admission alone! Not to be confused with it's sibling Voodoo Chile (slight return) which was released as a single, this is the extended bluesy jam version and it weighs in at just over 16 minutes! The original version was recorded 'live' in the studio and can of course be found on Electric Ladyland. An alternate version which was recorded as a warm up can be found on Jimi Hendrix: Blues. Both are simply wonderful.

To hear Messrs Clapton and Winwood playing this song together is a joy to behold. Of course Winwood played with Hendrix on the original in 1968. Quite likely he has not played it in 40 years, but then one is hard pressed to think of anyone besides Clapton who has the pedigree with whom he could play. Rarely does Clapton have the opportunity to extend himself in a song of this length and it is an absolute treat to hear these two masters paying homage to an old friend.

What are you waiting for?

I came across the BBC4 concert almost by mistake whilst searching through BBC i-player for something else so as a lifelong Clapton fan I just had to download it. God, (pardon the pun) I was not disappointed. I know the BBC version was only an hour but when Steve and Eric played Voodoo Chile - I nearly fell off my seat. It was the best thing I've heard EC do in years! Throughout the whole of the concert these guys looked so incredibly relaxed and Eric's smokey vocals were awesome. However, I was astounded when Steve sang Voodoo Chile - to me one of the best live tracks I think I've ever heard. It made the hairs on my neck stand on end. I played and played it over and over until it expired on i-player .. I shall certainly be downloading the whole album from Amazon in the next few days and then I can play this track in my car til my heart's content - it'll certainly put me in the best of moods on my way to work in the morning and has knocked Eric's live 'Double Trouble' off the top spot for me. An outstanding performance by a couple of world class musicians (not to forget the rest of the band). Superb stuff!

Quite simply, this is as good as it gets. A truly magnificent live album, equal, if not surpassing all other classic rock/blues live albums that i've heard over the last 40 odd years..I thought the Cream reunion cd was pretty good - but this is in a different class altogether... which shows that the Clapton/Winwood collaboration shouldn't have ended after the blind faith album in 1969.....(in fairness that departure did produce my other favourite clapton live album Delaney and Bonnie on Tour)....but even so........

Although both men are in their 60's, Clapton's playing has never been so potent and Winwood's voice has actually improved and matured with time. Each known track, be it 'tell the truth' 'little wing' 'pearly queen' 'ramblin on my mind' 'presence of the lord' 'had to cry today' 'split decision', betters the original studio version. Winwood's rendition of his Traffic classic 'no face, no name, no number' is perfect and extremely moving. Originally recorded in 1967 when Winwood was 19 years old, it sounds more convincing, now that age and experience are behind him. The same can be said for 'georgia' , which Winwood recorded on the Spencer Davis Group 2nd album in 1966.

The musicianship throughout is sublime and Clapton's guitarwork is the best I've heard from him. The Winwood and Clapton voices compliment each other really well (i.e. presence of the lord). There are a couple of unexpected highlights: they bravely tackle Hendrix's Voodoo Chile (the slow blues version) and against the odds, pull it off. As everyone knows, Winwood played the keyboards on the original Electric Ladyland album version. If anyone is worthy of doing hendrix, there's no one more qualified than Clapton.

A totally fabulous release.First the Cream reunion saw Eric play like we've not heard him in years,now this with Steve Winwood he hits the heights again.Steve surely along with Messrs. Plant and Paul Rodgers is the finest vocalist to come out of Britain in the history of rock.Here he is in full flight,he had an album last year 'Nine Lives' that largely went unnoticed yet was one of the best sets of the whole year,get it now you'll love it.Winwood and Clapton compliment each other so well,and they chose each others songs for this tour and boy did they choose well.I was never a big fan of 'Forever Man',that's all changed this version is quite brilliant and really more than ever before shows this song to be a classic rock number.Steve varies between keyboard and guitar
and he's equally brilliant on either,just listen to the opening track.The cover of J J Cale's 'Low Down' is absolutely inspired.Disc two see's a couple of Hendrix covers,I don't recall EC doing JH stuff before though I could be wrong.Little Wing is well played but 'Voodoo Chile' is in another league altogether,EC's playing absolutely soars,he's on fire full of ideas developing as he solos,this is what still makes him the best around,hear this track if you need any proof at all.Steve's cover of 'Georgia On My Mind' is worth the cost of the 2 CD set alone.I could go on and on about this release,but you must hear it for yourself,because albums this good,this alive don't come around that often.They may have been around a good few years now but they are still the best there is.They are currently touring the USA again ,so please guys do come and do a few here because this is truly what genius is all about.These are reunions of another league these are masters of their craft bringing us music and quality of the very highest and inspired level,not holding onto the past but full of fresh and innovative ideas that will inspire yet another generation.More please.
