Minor nit on DeltaNick's message:

The November 1994 Blues Shows were at the old Fillmore Auditorium, on Geary near Fillmore. Cream had played here in 1967 and 1968. The building was used as a Black Muslim Mosque for a while in the 70s, I believe, but now is once again a music venue.

The Fillmore West [originally the Carousel Ballroom] was upstairs on Market Street, near Van Ness. I don't believe that Cream ever played the Fillmore West, which closed in 1971, if I recall correctly.

Winterland was an old ice skating rink at Post and Steiner. Some of the Cream shows in 1968 were at Winterland, which closed in 1978 and has since been torn down.

Bill Graham presented shows at all three venues at various times during the 60s and 70s.

>> Could someone please tell me if Andy Newmark was booted or left on his own after the 1st leg of the Blues tour? <<

Although I have no documentation on this -- other than seeing it here a few years ago on the Slowhand Digest -- word was that EC nixed the nearly-released "Nothing But The Blues" video around '95 or '96 because he was dissatisfied with Newmark's drumming, having asked Newmark to leave during the tour, during late 1994 or early 1995. Martin Scorsese, as we all know, filmed and directed several nights' performance (8 and 9 November 1994, I believe) in San Francisco (Bill Graham's Winterland Fillmore West). Apparently, thousands of copies were already printed, some has shipped, and cardboard setups for advertising in stores had already shipped as well.

If someone has more, please add or correct.
