Eric Clapton - 2017-03-20 - New York City, NY (AUD/FLAC)


(Audience FLAC)

Eric Clapton 
Madison Square Garden

Night Two 

This was the second night of a brief tour, with few changes from night one. The set was short, virtually no pauses between songs, same setlist as night one, but different sequence. With no second guitar player, Clapton played lead, rhythm and handled all the vocals. Not bad for a man of his age. 

Overall I would say the show was satisfying, but far from his best. I do not expect EC to be touring too much longer, and wanted to have one last chance to see him live. 

The sound in MSG was surprisingly good, at least where I was sitting. The patch cord from the preamp to my recorder was bad and caused a number of short drop-outs in the left channel, which I patched from the right. I apologize if I missed any. Overall I think the recording is quite good and would have been better without the usual chatter from my neighbors. Sample is attached.
