Eric Clapton - The Real Legends
Chicago, Ill. - November 17, 1994 - DJ Copy - Aud 3
Geetarz Comments: Okay, now here's a mystery to hurt your brain! First, Zigzag released the The Lost Club Shows set, of which the first set was purported to be recorded at Buddy Guy's Legends club on November 17, 1995. But the cover art for that title is incorrect, because the first recording in that set is actually the first show from the Royal Albert Hall run in 1995. So then, DJ Copy released this title, "The Real Legends", which claims to be the missing November 17, 1995 show recorded in Chicago. Beware that some websites list this title as being recorded on November 7, 1995, which is clearly incorrect even if no absolute determination can be made of the exact recording date.
Sound quality is clear, but marred by a good deal of tape hiss and whine. A good, worthy performance, but worthy only to those who have the ability to tune out the recording deficiencies and enjoy the show!
Visitor Comments: "Hi-thought I'd tell you 'bout'The Real Legends'. I was lucky enough to go to the Chicago, N.Orleans & N.York shows. I managed to tape
the penultimate night at Legends-incredibly tight security, plus Alfie, who we knew and let us in, said to me specifically '..and no taping the f****** show'. I have to
admit that I did anyway, but blindly. I used to have a Sony D6 Pro and just turned the machine on and hoped the levels didn't peak. They did for the first few songs then
after a quick peek at the meter I turned the recording level down. The tapes of all the N.Orleans shows were all from my masters. I did tape NY but at least 2 better
versions have come out. Plus, on the last, great night, I had the 'pause' button on the whole damn show!" - MS
