Tom have you seen the Cream Live from Royal Albert Hall ('05 I believe) DVD?

That's good stuff!

But that can be said of just about all DVD discs I've seen with Eric Clapton. And BTW, welcome to the forum fellow aviator!

Nice thread revival Tom. I started scanning from the beginning and thought the context of the posts was weird - that was when I noticed it was from 2007!

Anyway a couple of my favourite BR Concert discs are:

Dave Matthews and TR at Radio City

and

Chris Botti in Boston . This one is recorded in 7.1 even. Absolutely beautiful audio in this one.

Cheers,

I'll second Dave Matthews and will add Andrea Bocelli live in Tuscany to the mix, excellent SQ and PQ.

Yup, I have the Cream DVD.

The reason that I like & respect Clapton is that he has really matured as a top notch, professional musician. No flashiness, gimicks & needless jumping around the stage. He just stands there & plays, and oh does he play! Furthermore, he & a few other British artists were largely instrumental in saving 'The Blues' from extinction in the 1960s. Thank gawd, as I luv 'The Blues'.

Clapton's extraordinay attention to detail in the recording, mixing & production of his CDs & DVDs makes his recent releases exemplary WRT sound & visual quality. Furthermore, in the past few years he has made a point of performing (jamming?) with many other extraordinary musicians such as BB King, Robert Cray, JJ Cale, Steve Winwood, etc, that makes these sessions quite special.

These qualities apply to the following DVDs that I own & really enjoy, espcially if I get into the sauce, ha!!:

Live in Hyde Park (1997) - this concert kicked off a world tour that I was honoured to attend in Vancouver several months after Hyde Park. One of EC's best efforts IMHO with wonderful content;

One More Car One More Rider (2001);

Sessions for Rabert J (2004); &

Crossroads Guitar Festivals (2004, 2007 & 2010) - lots of performers playing in different genres.

Another wonderful concert - Carlos Santana playing his older material that I like better than his recent stuff:

Sacred Fire Live in Mexico

I have a many others but the above are really superior IMHO.

Ack. A doppelganger. I wonder if Tom also lives inside a Stevie Ray Vaughn hat?

Yes, I have a SRV hat, & western boots as well, ha!! Sad that he was taken from us too soon.

I'm a rank amateur 5-String Electric Bass player. Blues is the only genre that I can jam along with 'by ear' after I figure out what key the tune is in, ha!!

I personally know a local blues player here on Vancouver Island (Nanaimo) - David Gogo (his real name!) - who is a simply stunning blues guitarist.

Check out a sample of his prowess with the bottleneck slide in YouTube:

David Gogo Plays the Blues - Live HD.

His CDs for the most part are outstanding for those who like electric & acoustic blues. Google 'David Gogo' & look for the following CDs (the tracks mentioned are the highlights of his overall great blues material):

'Halfway to Memphis' - Tracks 08 'This is a Man's World' & 11 'Blues Medley' are simply outstanding guitar work;

Skeleton Key - Track 10 'It don't make sense';

Live at Deer Lake - Track 08 'Hoochie Coochie Man';

Acoustic - good renditions, many on a vintage National Resonator guitar.

Different Views - Track 07 'Where the Devil Won't Go'.

He remains mostly unknown due to the fact that he resides so far from Toronto.

Another under-acknowldged blues guitarist is Walter Trout - absolutely exceptional.

I have a wonderful collection of Blues VHS Tapes; however, I recently retired that format from my system so I'm now trying to rebuild that collection on DVD; however, it is difficult to find some of the older content now.

BTW, I like older material from 'SADE' as well; however, her newer stuff has kinda lost its way IMO.
