Wot no John Mayall?
13 January 2001 | by Ricardo-8See all my reviews

17 tracks here: Louise (Yardbirds), Crossroads (Cream), I Feel Free, (Cream), Sunshine of Your Love (Cream), Strange Brew (Cream), White Room (Cream), Badge (Cream or Blind Faith, I forget), Worried Life Blues, Layla (Derek and the Dominos but performed solo), Knockin' on Heaven's Door, Cocaine, I Shot the Sheriff, Wonderful Tonight, Forever Man, Tearing Us Apart, Behind the Mask, Holy Mother.

What you think of it depends on your opinion of the Four Eras of Clapton (pre-Cream blues, Cream psychedelica, Derek and the Dominoes, and solo) - the balance is tipped more towards his solo work which I'm not too keen on. I found the last three tracks in particular to be diabolical.

However this video can be bought *very* cheap - £6 - so it's probably worth the price for ace footage of the Yardbirds (a mile away from For Your Love, thankfully) and Cream both live and in the studio (or the old grey whistle test, or something). Layla is disappointing as it's cobbled together from bits here and there, including one section with (yikes!) Phil Collins on drums. If you are reading this and are an archivist, make it your duty to go out *now* and search for Derek and the Dominos live footage!
