ERIC CLAPTON - Richmond, VA 1985

Sorry not to have posted any toonage since the Super Bowl...man, having a 6-month-old baby boy can cut into one's bloggin' time!

Anyway, tonight I'll be happily seeing my first show in ages: in a word, GOD. (No, not Hendrix -- I mean the ORIGINAL psychedelic-blooze-rawk geetar god.) I've only ever seen Clapton twice; once recently, with short-lived Blind Faith bandmate Steve Winwood at the Hollywood Bowl, and once way the hell back in high school, at the Baltimore Civic Center, the very night after this live boot was recorded. This here show was recorded FM-stylee for ye olde King Biscuit, so it's an all-'round ass-blaster.

Promise to be back sooner than later...'till then:

Coliseum - Richmond, VA - April 22, 1985 (SBD @320 kbps)

How was the show? He's great of course, but seems to be so stagnated - just a noodle jammer. To me his godness is in the (early) songwriting and singing. Great pair.

Show was fantastic -- his singing and especially playing are seriously better than ever. He's into a heavy blues bag now -- where he always wanted to be anyway, really -- so no '80s pop crap to sit through.

And sitting 5th row center didn't hurt none...!

PS -- For the first-ever prog-nerd math-rock porno flick, can I nominate "Noodle Jammer" as the title?

Most women, especially those who have not started exercise routine exercise training appears to be threatening. However, in order to achieve the best wishes of health and fitness, other people's great leap forward, and found that the real women fitness score.
