Eric's voice is very strong and he's sharing vocals with Yvonne Elliman. Further On Up The Road. I think that this version match the one on " From The Cradle ".
If you want more songs from this period, let me suggest his box set "Crossroads 2". But the tone, phrasing and resolutions are generally excellent and even in this speeded up blues context each line is marked by an intelligent sense of pacing.
One of the better live performances of his career. The song basically has an accoustic phase and an electric phase.
Very good vocals, al though Eric mess up the first verse. Even the guitar solo is not Clapton at his best. He has recovered the crisp, fluid sense of phrasing that catapulted him into the vanguard, while maintaining the mature vocal style that has characterized his latest studio efforts. He was no longer God, just another talented guitarist.
On a more positive note, though, the two acoustic cuts included here 'Drifting Blues' and 'Can't Find My Way Home' are quite convincing, and they anticipate the live sound later perfected by Eric on his 1992 Unplugged recording. Keven Rating: Would he ever really play again? Instead of singing "Someone's gonna hurt you like you've hurt me", he's singing "You gonna hurt someone like you've hurt me"!
Michael Wheeler Rating: Indeed, after hearing these cuts you can understand why Eric eventually dumped this American band for the crack British outfit featured on 1980's Just One Night live album.
This is also very laidback, with the exception of that great guitar part in the middle. Eric does a great job with this Robert Johnson written song. Eric uses his guitar to do the talking! Each and every song on this record shows that the record-buyers and critics could not be any more wrong!
