Eric Clapton - Springfield Civic Center
Springfield, Mass. - June 24, 1975 - CD-R2 - Aud 5
Comments: Superior to most bootleg releases, this is the audience recording directly from master: Sony ECM-99A -> Sony TC-152SD Master Cassette -> DAT -> CD. Mastered by Steve Hopkins. An excellent audience recording, especially considering the era - far better and more listenable in fact than many aud recs from the 21st century! Worth noting are an excellent instrumental jam performance on Disc 1, and an interesting performance of 'Crossroads'. Listen carefully during the band's rendition of 'Mainline Florida' and you'll catch a hint of the 'Layla' riff as well as a tease of 'Motherless Children'. This performance is also available in a slightly tweaked version on the Mid Valley release Joker.
