Review by Ted Pewitt - Birmingham, Al. :

EC and Company put on another incredible show in Birmingham, Alabama on 10/18. The set list was the same as the last few shows except for the acoustic set. Gone were "Back Home" and "I am Yours". They were replaced with "Key to the Highway" and "San Francisco Bay Blues". Clapton even played the kazoo! (awkwardly, I might add) The whole band got a chuckle out of watching EC play a kazoo with a harmonica holder around his neck while strumming along to "San Francisco Bay Blues". Eric also seemed to think it was pretty funny. The crowd loved it! Clapton waved off the Gibson 335 he has played the last couple of shows during "After Midnight" and "Little Queen of Spades" and sent for the Strat. I saw the show in Georgia a few days ago and I was blown away. The Birmingham show was equally as good. The people with me said it was the best EC show they have ever seen. I've seen him 10 times including a Cream show and I would have to agree. This current EC band is amazing! I can't say enough about Derek Trucks. Clapton seems really relaxed and seriously enjoying what he's doing. He was very "in to" the music. You can tell he still really loves what he does. It's great to see him at this stage of his career delivering above expectations every night all over the world. He is truly one of a kind. If you have an opportunity to see this tour, do yourself a favor, make sure you're there. It's a great night of music..

Please note, there are (at least) two different recordings of this performance, available in three different sets. This recording (see source details above) is the more desirable of the bunch and is not to be confused with the Sennheiser version which is inferior to this one. If you have a copy of this performance and are not sure which recording you have, check the audio sample of the "Pretending", above. Please also take care to source correct artwork for the recording version you have .
