Album Review

In his liner notes, Anthony DeCurtis calls Live at the Fillmore "a digitally remixed and remastered version of the 1973 Derek and the Dominos double album In Concert, with five previously unreleased performances and two tracks that have only appeared on the four-CD Clapton retrospective, Crossroads." But this does not adequately describe the album. Live at the Fillmore is not exactly an expanded version of In Concert; it is a different album culled from the same concerts that were used to compile the earlier album. Live at the Fillmore contains six of the nine recordings originally released on In Concert, and three of its five previously unreleased performances are different recordings of songs also featured on In Concert — "Why Does Love Got to Be So Sad?," "Tell the Truth," and "Let It Rain." The other two, "Nobody Knows You When You're Down and Out" and "Little Wing," have not been heard before in any concert version. Even when the same recordings are used on Live at the Fillmore as on In Concert, they have, as noted, been remixed and, as not noted, re-edited. In either form, Derek and the Dominos' October 1970 stand at the Fillmore East, a part of the group's only U.S. tour, finds them a looser aggregation than they seemed to be in the studio making their only album, Layla and Other Assorted Love Songs. A trio backing Eric Clapton, the Dominos leave the guitarist considerable room to solo on extended numbers, five of which run over ten minutes each. Clapton doesn't show consistent invention, but his playing is always directed, and he plays more blues than you can hear on any other Clapton live recording.

Customer Reviews

One of the greatest live albums ... ever !

Recorded when Clapton was at his peak, this album is a masterclass in the power and glory of live music. There is a perfect blend of blues and rock played by a band that, despite whatever problems they had off stage, clearly combine into a tight and committed unit on stage. Claptons playing has probably never been better and future live albums pale in comparison. The sheer force of the middle section of "Presence of the Lord" virtually takes the breath away. The Plaintiff tones of "Why has love got to be so sad" never fail to engage. There are one or two tracks that are just excellent but they give you a chance to take a breath until the next brilliant track comes along. Whatever you do, don't pick some of the tracks, buy the whole album. Live music works extremely well on ipods and this is about as good as it gets. An essential buy.
