Reseña de álbum
Eric Clapton's new millennium has largely been defined by collaborations with friends, beginning with a duet album with B.B. King following through with a Cream reunion and closing with tours with his former Blind Faith running mate, Steve Winwood. Clapton and Winwood did three concerts together at Madison Square Garden in February 2008 and the results were fruitful enough to spawn this double-disc album — along with its accompanying DVD set — and a moderately scaled 2009 tour. Live from Madison Square Garden culls 21 highlights from those three nights and spreads them over two discs, sequencing the songs so Traffic numbers alternate with selections from Blind Faith, Derek & the Dominos, blues standards, a handful of Clapton's hits, and a heavy dose of Hendrix, who has no less than three songs here. That extended salute to Jimi is a good indication of the vibe here — this is a genuine shared co-billing with Clapton and Winwood trading vocals and solos almost equally. There's not much ego here and not much hunger, either, with the two stars sliding into a relaxed groove that yields plenty of rewards. There's a comfortable touch to their playing that's greatly appealing, and the straightforward setting places the spotlight directly on their interplay. Clapton and Winwood might roll easy but they can still create some sparks, sometimes in unexpected places, such as the somewhat forgotten '80s hits "Forever Man" and "Split Decision," both which are highlights here. Ultimately, this isn't an album of moments, but rather a sustained whole that finds Clapton and Winwood egging each other on to produce a wholly satisfying, if not quite surprising, reunion.

I went and saw this show last spring, and it truly changed the way I view both of these artists. I went to the show expecting to hear some cream, maybe some Traffic of I was lucky. But I was SO glad to hear that they went out of their comfort zones to play songs such as Georgia on my Mind, Kind Hearted Woman (sorry, the show I saw, Clapton played Kind Hearted Woman, not Ramblin on my mind) and Them Changes. It was very ironic that they played Changes, a buddy miles song, that night because only a few days later did Miles die of congestive heart disease. Rolling Stone said that Eric picked steve's songs they were going to play, and steve picked the eric's songs they would play. And i think that they chose the best of each artists and they played an INCREDIBLE show. Truly life changing performances from both of them, even at their age.
SYNERGY TO THE MAX!!!
This is not just another live Clapton album, it is Eric Clapton and Steve Winwood bringing out the BEST in each other! These two legends define the meaning of SYNERGY!!! I did not expect this release to be such an energetic album. This is some of Clapton's BEST live guitar playing to date, with him using the foot peddle to introduce several unique tone signatures into old "Blackie". Meanwhile, Winwood has the B-3/Leslie spinning at full speed! In the past, Winwood's organ work has more or less been in the background, with the listener wanting more. With this concert, he's upfront and in your face to the point that you almost want him to back it off a bit (but of course, not really). THIS IS BRILLIANT and the tech quality is above average. Don't even think about picking and choosing songs. BUY THE ENTIRE ALBUM! Voodoo Chile is SICK!!! It's a rockin' "blues groove" treat that would have even Hendrix standing back in awe!!! Whether you're a diehard fan or a newbie to these Guitar Heroes, you won't regret this purchase. It doesn't get any better than this!!!
You got to love the Hammond B-3 crankin in these tunes rock from yeasteryear. What a great song selection, Steve Winwood sounds like he is 23 yrs. young. ( The White Ray Charles) 5 stars great live performance. highly recommended.
