One of EC's Best Live Albums,
This review is from: EC Was Here (Audio CD)
This was Eric's first live album after his 1970s `comeback' and it's one of his best live efforts, up there with Just One Night and the Dominos at Fillmore.
After the relatively low-key guitar work on 461 Ocean Blvd and There's One in Every Crowd, this set has some cracking guitar, not only from EC but also from George Terry. The rhythm section is solid and Yvonne Elliman's back up vocals fit in well, particularly on 'Can't Find My Way Home'.
The remastered CD sound is superior to the old LP, plus it has the full version of the acoustic Driftin' Blues. The drum sound is crisp and much better than on, for example, Just One Night.
The album opens with a great version of Have You Ever Loved a Woman - complete with a referefence to Patti Harrison - and closes with an absolutely storming rendition of Further On Up The Road.
An essential purchase.
