4.0 out of 5 stars A fine addition to the Clapton catalogue, 2 May 2003
This review is from: Live At The Fillmore (Audio CD)
Eric Clapton, Bobby Whitlock, Carl Radle and Jim Gordon play some truly memorable live blues rock on this fine double album.
Clapton may not have had too high an opinion of himself as a singer at this point (he seems more comfortable playing his guitar), but his performance is really very good, and a few of the songs, such as the 14-minute "Got To Get Better In A Little While", would actually have benefitted from a little more singing and a little less guitar.
Sure, Eric Clapton is a tremendous blues player, but listening to him playing four ten-minute solos can be a little bit too much, especially since not all of his solos are innovative enough to keep you interested after the first four or five minutes.

But having said that, most of these live cuts are a very welcome addition to the Clapton legacy, especially the superb take on Big Bill Broonzy's "Key To The Highway", the rocking "Bottle Of Red Wine" and "Blues Power" (nice boogie piano by Whitlock), and the eerie "Crossroads". But every cut is strong, really, and I can't imagine anyone who is into early Eric Clapton not liking this fine album.
