Eric Clapton - "Can't Get Much Better Than This..."
Biloxi, Mississippi - September 2, 1990 - CD-R2 - 76:41/27:07 - Aud 3
Comments: The final show of EC's North American 1990 tour. EC kicks things off with a long, extended solo in "Pretending" and it
pretty much sets the tone for the evening. Following a powerful rendition of "I Shot the Sheriff", EC
gets in an agressive, "singing" guitar solo on "White Room". Someone near the taper exclaims "It Can't
Get Much Better Than This!!!" during "Before You Accuse Me", and he's right, it's a high-energy performance.
A tortured version of "Old Love" follows, with great solos by Eric and some beautiful, jazzy bass by
Nathan East. This was keyboard player Alan Clark's last performance with Eric's band, and Eric mentions
this during the band introductions, telling the crowd that Alan is on his way to rejoin Dire Straits, which
elicits a good reaction from the crowd - one can only hope because they like Dire Straits, not because
they were happy to see him go!
