Tapers Notes: 
There was a lot of traffic on the way to the gig, so I missed the first few songs. Security was really tight, so I only recorded this show using the internal mike from my cell phone. I had cord issues, so the first couple tracks have static. I went with friends and their hoots and hollars and talking aren't too bad. I was drinking and had to take a rest break, so one track in the middle is missing. My batteries went bad towards the end of the show, so the encore is missing. Actually, none of that happened, because I've been taping since the 1970s. 

Seriously, Eric Clapton at the Royal Albert Hall with a ridiculous tight back up band. Who could resist. We were a bit too close for the perfect tape, but still a good pull. The ALD was new, so there was a learning curve for that unit and proper placement for the first night.
