Introduction by DGB :
As previously indicated in a posting by Boguspomp, in a joint colaboration between DGB & Boguspomp all of my Eric Clapton
master recordings will be released under the DGB-EC series. All of these recordings will be transferred directly from my master
recordings & remastered by the wonderful & talented Boguspomp for optimum sound quality. Many of these recordings have been released
in various formats over the years including releases under bootleg labels such as Mid Valley. All of these releases have never been
taken directly from my master recordings since I have never given or authorised the release of my master recordings directly to
any bootleg label. The intent is to release the best versions possible of these recordings.
I will provide my own personal comments based on my recollections & memories of each show that is released.
Some of these stories will include the many challenges of recording shows.
References will be made to personal contacts & friends, but for privacy purposes, no names will be disclosed.
Anyone reading these stories will know who you are. I will also provide my own personal opinion about the sound quality of each recording,
as well as the quality of Eric’s performance. I have seen Eric Clapton countless times (80+ and counting) and am very critical,
not only of my own recordings, but also of Eric’s playing. These are my own personal opinions, which you may not necessarily agree with,
but having seen Eric Clapton as many times as I have, I feel that I am probably a good judge.
If you do not agree with my comments, please do not hold this against me. Remember this is just my personal opinion.
Both Boguspomp and I would like to hear from anyone with any feedback or opinions whether these are good or bad.
Comment by DGB about this show :
Located in the 1st block left hand side of stage... Very good recording... Another great show from the 1992 tour...
Great versions of ‘Running On Faith’, ‘Tearing Us Apart’, ‘Old Love’ & ‘Layla’.Now a little tired after seeing 6 shows in 8 days
(started this tour in Brighton on the 1st of Feb 1992). Started driving home right after the 2nd Sheffield show...
Stopped at a gas station & to our surprise Steve Ferrone (Eric’s drummer) was filling up with gas right next to our pump.
We chatted for a brief while about the tour & then continued our trip home. In the near future will be up the long residency at the Royal Albert Hall...
Comment by GEETARZ :
An excellent show ... the ultimate test of any performance is "do you want to hit the 'rewind' button and listen to it again", and in this case, the answer is "YES!!!"
Comment by Boguspomp :
Show #4 from DGB's 1992 recordings. Another very dynamic, powerful and long show. Sound is a little more distant than last nights capture, but still very enjoyable.
Before Tearing Us Apart is a good place to split the CD's.
Enjoy the show.
