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 1st block left hand side of stage. Excellent recording... One of my best recordings from the 1992 tour...
Unfortunately an average show & what I would best describe as Eric on ‘autopilot’ in terms of playing... Nice versions of ‘Running On Faith’ & ‘Old Love’.
No real memories to report about for the 2 shows at Sheffield. The security at the Sheffield Arena was nothing compared with the Birmingham shows.
All I remember is that since we were on a low budget we stayed at a Hotel that was a real dump.
It was going through a major renovation & everything was dirty. The good thing is that it was cheap!
Comment by Boguspomp :
Show #3 from DGB's 1992 recordings.I cannot agree with DGB, that this show seems to be on autopilot.
Very powerful performance. If this Sunshine of your love is on autopilot, than I don't know the meaning of autopilot (:
Sound is very crispy and well balanced.
Before Badge is a good place to split the CD's.
Enjoy the show.
