Geetarz Comments:

Ok, what's wrong with this picture? Hmmmm, let's see ... designer boots ...
leather pants ... designer shirt ... designer guitar strap ... and BASEBALL
CAPS? Yes, that's right. The University of Connecticut "Huskies" Basketball
team in 1990 had what has been referred to as the "Dream Season" finishing
36-6, and performing in their home arena EC and Nathan donned team caps to
commemorate the event. during the instrumental "A Remark You Made" prelude
to "Layla". It's the sort of thing that makes this show fun to watch. The
band isn't particularly "on fire" this night, there are no really memorable
blistering guitar or drum solos or dazzling keyboard runs. It's one of
those nights where Eric and the band are there to relax a bit and have FUN
with several thousand of their friends. A sold out show with the seating
behind the stage filled, EC occasionally takes his solos behind the stage
facing to the rear, at which point the crowd back there just go wild. It's
a spirited crowd but the audience noise doesn't intrude on the recording at
all. EC comes out for the encore and does an extended "Boogie Chillin" solo
jam before the band kicks into "Crossroads. EC and Nathan even take the time
for a slow dance with Tessa and Katie during the jazzy prelude to "Sunshine
of Your Love". Shot from a single, tripod mounted camera, this is the
complete show. Standalone DVD transfer directly from the master VHS makes
this one as good as it gets!

Received direct from taper's master (thanks Matt, you rock!)

Seeded by Request from the Claptonboots Group for the Melmeister!
