    One More Car, One More Rider - Eric Clapton Live

    Not only was this one of the best concerts that I have attended, but Clapton's originals were performed excellently and this is the best version of Somewhere Over the Rainbow that I have ever heard.

    Awe inspiring

    If you're dumb enough to think this album was poorly selected and repetitious, don't call yourself a Clapton fan (in reference to some reviews below). Clapton was superb, his magic fingers doing their work, and a supremely perfect perfomance by the back up band. Any REAL Clapton fan should purchase and enjoy this album.

    Bland, with just a little bit of bland added to spice up the blandness

    Eric Clapton has made some great live albums, particularly the superb "Eric Clapton's Rainbow Concert". This is not one of them. Clapton and his band play supremely well, sure, but they're certainly not playing the blues. Instead they manage to turn everything they touch into slick, lounge-like pop songs with not an ounce of grit. If you prefer Eric Clapton in his 90s balladeer's guise, you'll probably like this album just fine. Nothing wrong with that. But if you like Eric Clapton the bluesman, and have gotten your hopes up by the inclusion of songs like "Hoochie Coochie Man" and "Goin' Down Slow" (in an unrecognizable pop rendition), you'll be sorely disappointed. Everything is done in a bland, unbearably mannered fashion, with not so much as a spark to ignite a little bit of passion in the listener, let alone the smouldering fire of Clapton's sixties and early seventies recordings. And for a closing number, he does "Over The Rainbow". 'Nuff said.

    What, nothing new (again) . . .

    I'm a Clapton fan, but this is getting repetitious. Most of us already have what's on here, how many times and on how many more cd's are we going to hear the same songs over and over. This would be good for someone who has never followed Clapton's career and would like a more current greatest hits cd.

    World Class Guitar, World Class Band, Rock On!

    Don't buy the "tired" or "going thru the motions" rubbish that has been written about this album. This Live 2001 tour shows a guitar master, firmly comfortable with his songs, and enjoying the celebration of performing them with the best touring band available. He opens solo acoustic; a gutsy move in front of 10s of thousands, and keeps on acoustic for the first few numbers with the band. And it is SOOOOO nice to hear new live versions of recent hits. "Tears in Heaven" is still a tear-jerker, but remarkably joyous in this venue, as a real masterpiece of sound. And EC can still play the blues riffs and rock out on Badge, Layla and Sunshine as well as ever. You never get tired of his lead work, and the production of this recording is flawless. Listen on headphones and my only gripe appears...there is way too much echo and reverb on ECs voice, perhaps to make it sound a little less fragile. But that's all folks. If you were not there, you will be with this 2 hrs+ of classy journeyman's tales.

    Another great live album!

    This is a great cd, especially if you saw him on the 2001 tour. Eric plays a variety of different songs with a variety of styles. This album shows how he constantly tries to expand his musical boundries.

    What is wrong with Clapton?

    He has written legendary classic songs that will be around until the end of time yet he has such horrible taste in his own music. Retire already will you! The top 40 hits on this cd like "Tears in Heaven" and "Change the World" were never his best efforts so why ruin a perfectly good cd. Thanks for "Badge" anyway. And as for "Somewhere Over the Rainbow" ,what did I do to deserve that?
