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 Ericís performance. I have seen Eric Clapton countless times (80+ and counting) and am very critical, not only of my own recordings, but also of Ericís 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.



Comment by DGB about this show :


1st show at the Royal Albert Hall for me... Excellent show with lots of mistakes & very aggressive quick playing... Very different performance compared to the previous shows in Brighton, Birmingham & Sheffield.


Comment by Boguspomp :

Here is the RAH run as recorded by our own DGB. We will have 4 RAH shows and the Montreux 1992 during this weeks series. As before, all of these come directly from the master cassette or since 2001 from DAT. 
Today's show starts very dynamic and continues so throughout the over 2 hours. EC is on fire. 
After 'Before You Accuse Me' is a good place to split the CD's.

Enjoy the show.
