Eric Clapton EC Was Here Overall Review Rating – ?/30
A 46 minute set where Eric Clapton focuses on the blues whilst also acknowledging his after Cream output.
- Have You Ever Loved a Woman – 7:49 (from the Layla album by Derek & the Dominos)
- Presence of the Lord – 6:40 (Blind Faith)
- Driftin’ Blues – 11:30 (blues standard first done by Clapton on this album)
- Can’t Find My Way Home – 5:18 (Blind Faith)
- Ramblin’ on My Mind – 7:38 (Robert Johnson song first recorded by Clapton with the Bluesbreakers)
- Further on Up the Road – 7:30 (first appearance of Clapton’s version of this Bobby Bland song)
I think that it’s a shame this album hasn’t been extended like many of the other single live albums from the 70s.
I give the set list 8/10 because it’s so short but the quality is consistently high.
