In 1990 and 1991 Eric Clapton performed 42 nights at the Royal Albert Hall in London; 18 shows in 1990 and 24 in 1991. During the run of these shows Clapton performed with three different line-ups: a rock band, a blues band, and an orchestra. The huge undertaking of rehearsing for performances of three distinctly different genres and set lists was made more challenging by the rock show line-ups varying from 4, 9 or 13 band members. Guest musicians included Buddy Guy, Albert Collins, Robert Cray and Phil Collins. The orchestra was conducted by the late Michael Kamen.
Many of the performances were filmed and recorded and the huge amount of audio and film material has been painstakingly restored and the quality upgraded. These deluxe re-issues are greatly expanded compared to the original 1991 release with a wealth of previously unreleased material. The set lists featured songs from Clapton’s career up to that time, including stunning orchestral and rock performances of “Layla,” “Sunshine of Your Love,” “Wonderful Tonight,” “White Room,” “Can’t Find My Way Home,” and “Crossroads.” Other highlights are “Knockin’ On Heaven’s Door,” “No Alibis,” “Bell Bottom Blues,” “Edge of Darkness,” and the recorded debut of the 30-minute Michael Kamen composition “Concerto For Electric Guitar.” The 14-song blues set features “Key To The Highway,” “Sweet Home Chicago,” “Watch Yourself,” and “Black Cat Bone.”
