Ok, I have to give credit where credit is due. I've been sitting on an Eric Clapton show I got about three years ago. I have show dated 9/29/74, Eric Clapton in New York City. I thought to casually play part of it tonight to "get through" it, to add is to my list. I thought, 1974, several years since D & D, prolly gonna be lame. OH **** . This show is kicking ass. It is a big time soundboard, maybe a released, illegitemate live show. I need to research the show. Anyway, I got this from a buddy in Japan several years ago, back when I was collecting FREE shows. I got this show as a freebie. Anyway, this is my first real old Clapton show, and my only Clapton bootleg. I gotta say, it's really fine. WOW. Very nice. Let me go find a setlist for this promo thread/post.

Thank you Yoshinora.

Eric played Atlanta in I think 1976, and as the encore he played Layla with Dicky Betts as his guest.

I saw EC at the Providence Civic Center(late '70's?) with Phil Collins on drums. Pretty cool.

I worked that show. They did "White Room" for a sound check

Did Bobby Whitlock play live with EC much after D&D?

Well, I've heard the entire show now. It's simply an outstanding bootleg. I seem to remember Yoshinora said it was called Little Jeep or something? That doesn't sound like anything to me, and I just labeled it by the date. But this sounds as good as the released D and D Fillmore show. I don't know who the females are singing on some of the vocals, but this sounds like a commercial release. If you wanted to start with a Clapton show, this one would get you primed to collect a few.

Clay, according to the liner notes to the Layla box set, the breakup of Derek and the Dominoes was pretty traumatic, and a lot of bridges were burned. Eric tells a sad story of Bobby Whitlock coming to his house, but Eric was too smacked out to deal with him and wouldn't answer the door. Bobby knew he was home and knocked for a long time, but Eric basically hid from him.

I don't think their relationship ever recovered, and I don't think they played together after that.

Wow. D&D with a REAL Derek on slide. Can you imagine that?

How awesome. Eric could use a little schoolin' from Derek...

I saw EC at The Garden probably around that time frame, unfortunately I was behind the stage, which sucked, but I think it was his coming out tour after rehab for the H problem he had. I rememeber Todd Rundgren jamming with him on an encore and Dicky walking out to play as Eric shut it down for the night.

I'm going to be with Bobby this weekend, and if it presents itself I'll be sure to ask him a few questions about D&D.

I have seen him live 5 times now - going back to the 80's. IMHO, this man has the MOST amazing stage presence of any one I have seen live.

5. Bobby Whitlock Interview *

This was a Jools Holland TV show appearance that Whitlock did when he released a solo album a few years ago. This album (It's About Time) was only available as an import for some reason.

There was an article in Mojo magazine regarding The Dominos' story(2001 with the lovely Gallagher Brothers on the cover). Interesting take on the piano coda of Layla, & it's origins(Bonnie Bramlett told Tom Dowd that coda bit originated during the D&B days touring. He met her again at Joe Dan Petty's services).

Anyway, it appears that EC & Whitlock haven't played together since the breakup of the Dominos. The article ends on the note by EC telling BW that, "We are still standing."

He supposedly replied, "So we are."

Kinda eerie for people to be talking like that. I have this recording if anybody's interested.
