Ditto here !
There aren't many like Clapton who are as comfortable in the background as the foreground . Since the 'Concert for Bangladesh ' he has constantly put in cracking , committed performances on these occasions .

Got this one for Christmas and played it last night. WOW! What a great disc. The stuff with Winwood is as good as it gets. And Derek Trucks is awesome! I thought I was a fan until watching this. Now,I'm really a fan of his. The kid is one of the greats! And Vince Gill might be a country guy, but he rocks.And a great surround mix for a live recording.

Anyone know who that very young girl playing the awesome bass for Jeff Beck was? I'm surprised. There's no credits for anyone on the show. Seems like they'd have put the musicians somewhere on the disc. Kind of wonder who did the 5.1 job,also.

Anyway, I'd recommend this one for anyone who likes guitar.

The 22 year old bassist from Australia is Tal Wilkenfeld - more info here http://www.talwilkenfeld.com/Tal.html

Mixing credits are in the liner notes (folder inside the DVD case);

"Stereo and 5.1 Surround mixed by Elliot Scheiner, Ed Cherney, Chuck Ainlay & Guy Charbonneau."

I have to say that with all the moanin' and groanin' going on here at QQ forum about the lack of new surround titles you would think that everyone would be all over this one - only 5 votes so far - all 10's - a stellar, 5.1 DTS mix.

This gets my vote for DVD-Video of the year. As Elmer says, this one is stellar. A must have for patrons of this forum! (y)(y)

PS. I can't believe she's 22 years old! :eek:

Thanks for the info. I was guessing she was only 16 or 17. But still, she has a heck of a resume for a 22 year old.

Was kinda guessing Scheiner had a hand in the mix. He really knows how to do surround sound right.

Disc two will be worn out before long!

What a way to wrap up a show. All of that talent. I too was not aware of Steve Winwoods' guitarmanship. Great show, great sound, a solid 10.:smokin

As an aside, I was also very impressed with John Mayer. I will follow up on some of his music.

Great show, great collection of performances captured by people who knew what they were doing (for a change). A boon for us guitar slingers too. Very entertaining and great sounding, I give it a solid "10". Eric Clapton, Derek Trucks, Jeff Beck, John Mayer, Doyle Bramhall II, and a host of others make for an excellent and very musical show. What I wouldn't give to share that stage for a while...

Now - Justin thingy who did the Queen Montreal abomination should go out & buy this live set and study it - it will teach him how he should have done the Queen one.
That Montreal set mixed like this is would have been truly stonking.

For me, the highlights are the 3 Blind Faith tracks:
Presence of the Lord, Can't find my way home & Had to Cry Today.
Had to Cry Today is definitely the highlight of the highlights though.
The 2 drummers & 3 guitars (or was it 4?) are not crowding each other, and I love the way the drumkits are using all 5 channels. Hello, Elliot Scheiner, methinks! Definitely not a Chuck Ainley mix there.
These are played so well & mixed so sympathetically they are literally sublime.
The whole set is stunning in every meaning of the word.

Awesome. So what are you waiting for then? I don't need to say anything else but "Go buy this set - NOW"
:banana::banana::banana::banana::banana:.:banana:
Five point One bananas - cannot give a higher accolade than that!

You know, he looked frail in the 70's. I am in awe that he still gets up on stage!!!!

Man I am still buzzin about the Clapton/Winwood show I saw last night at the Garden :sun. Sold out for 3 nights - what a set - I can't remember every song but it covered it all from Blind Faith to Traffic to Derek & The Dominoes - even covers of Voodoo Child, Little Wing, Georgia on My Mind - Stevie really knocked the crowd out with that one - just him and the Hammond B3! Nice tribute to Buddy Miles ( who just passed this week) with Them Changes. The crowd went nuts all night long - other standouts were Glad, Can't Find My Way Home, Dear Mr. Fantasy ( the finale), Cocaine, After Midnight, and a majestic In the Presence of the Lord.

A good couple of days - came home after the show to find the advance copy of Ringo 5.1 waiting on my doorstep(y)
