The Core [Side 2] 7. May You Never 8. Mean Old Frisco 9. Cale's "Cocaine", the love song and perennial compilation filler "Wonderful Tonight" and the poppy "Lay Down Sally" had on his radio popularity. Clapton keeps the simple melody but again makes it feel like it was an EC song all along. It's a winner. I'd have to say that the Bonus Tracks on Disc 1 are largely disappointing and it's pretty obvious why his dreadful "Stars, Strays And Ashtrays" stayed in the can his vocal is awful and he sounds stoned.
But all that pales into the distance when you get to the shock of Disc The band the same line-up he had on the album minus Saxophonist Mel Collins is on fire and each version of each song is infused with energy and playing that is amazing "Further On Up The Road" rocks like a mother and receives a warm audience response. A major bummer is that there's amp feedback prevalent throughout the minute Blues of "Stormy Monday" which really detracts especially in the solos - but it's still a great purist performance.
Better is "Badge" which gets slightly funked up and elicits crowd handclapping and cheers. Disc 2 ends as it had to do on the crowd-pleaser "Layla" where the guitars rock out. I'd love to see the underrated "Backless" from receive the same treatment - and for that matter the equally underrated and forgotten "Another Ticket" from Once more unto the tape vaults Mister Levenson Like many fans, this wasn't the first time I'd heard this album, but it has taken me a while to buy this particular variant, purely because I thought it was so costly when it was fantastic return released.
Anyway, a quick review - the main album you probably all know and love anuway, and a fair bit of the Hammersmith show has already been released on other albums; but it does contain an absolutely humongous version of Steady Rolling Man, on it, which is probably worth the whole buy alone - an absolutely stonking rhythm that runs through it.
It's also worth playing the Hammersmith show and this one back to back too. It gives you an idea of the confidence gained, that had brought Eric to Slowhand, since Well recommended. I actually bought this album for my father as he's a big fan and I thought the artwork would look good in one of those vinyl frames that are pretty cool. It's not to my taste but the recording is great if you love that vinyl tonality and there were tracks on here my father hadn't heard before which was cool.

Once again the rhythm section is full tilt and rocks like a good old garage band having a jolly workout.
All the original art has been restored and the cover folds out to poster size. Although everyone is entitled to their opinions, for me Clapton just doesn't get any better that with what you hear on this album. It is as heart felt as they come. When I was a teenager and this came out, I intitally bought all the single's from the record, then finally saved up for the album and I wore that sucker out!
Aside from Clapton's well known hit's that most people are familar with, if you truly want to dive into EC, you simply can't find a better record to do it with than Slow Hand. See all reviews.

J.J. Cale's "Cocaine" starts the festivities. Clapton covers the song well and the memorable riff has never left the play list of FM /5(9).
