Recorded over several nights at Tokyo's Budokan Theater, this is an interesting release, as this is not a pure soundboard recording! Obviously mixed for broadcast / release, from several different nights, and the mix itself is what one could call a "radio" mix, in that crowd mics are used to add ambience as is usually done on broadcasts. One can only speculate that this was destined for release at some point, and plans were shelved. Luckily, Mid Valley to the rescue - an essential part of any Clapton collection, the eclectic mix of traditional blues, classic rock, and pop hits is a winner. Recommended.

One of the best Clapton bootlegs in my opinion. Great mix of blues and hits. Stunning version of Crossroads. Vocals are wonderful on all songs. Interesting to hear one of the few live performances of Circus Left Town.

Loved the version of Layla on this CD as it has a liberal use of a horn section and there is a great solo in Ain't Nobody's Business as well as great vocals on .44. Great mix of Blues and classics but the only draw back the version I had of 32-20 ran too fast when played but it did in all fairness sound a great song. If you want a good mix of Eric at his best get this boot..
