Welcome Back To Landover [Get Lost Trax 443301-2 - SB 5, 2CD]

Live at the Capital Center, Landover, Maryland; October 4, 1974. Good soundboard.

For those looking for more Claptons, here is a 1974 show that has also circulated as a one-disc The Devil Knows You’re Lost [Slowhand SH004], which is missing Badge. Unfortunately, Welcome Back To Landover is still incomplete as there is only a snippet of Layla.

Thanks to Geetarz who shared this in 2009.

  2. Thanks! This post got me wondering what had become of Dick Sims, and I was sad to see that he had passed last year. He also put out a solo album in 2009 that sounds worth checking out

  3. classic clapton,he may be drunk but he knocks spots off anyone sober playing guitar,perhaps they should dig out the orignal tapes (r.s.o) and make e.c was here into a remastered double cd set…………..YES!

  4. The missing “badge” is worth the listen!
    As i hear clapton’s guitar playing in the early
    seventies,i can help thinking he was a pionneer
    (of course freddie king was a big influence),but in soloing,there was no one to
    copy,like virgin landscapes to explore.
    But if you listen to “who’s next” solos,it’s a
    fact that clapton & pete townsend were very
    closed and good friends too :)

  5. If I`m not mistaken E.C. was here has been given an expanded treatment.

  11. Thanks, Sluggo, for the track list. Think I have all these dates but others likely won’t. Rock on, BigO!

  12. yeah the 1st 15 tracks does kinda expand on ec was here doesnt it without actually saying so per se. however i would say that it makes it 21 tracks but the 6 tracks on the original album also appear on the crossroads 2 box and i have never sat down and compared the versions etc. ill leave that to those with more patience. so we have 9 more songs on the box than we did in 75. not exactly an expanded edition but ill take it.

    yes crossroads 2 was a hell of a lot better than the first box. he is so much better live than he is in the studio. if one were to take audio tapes one could take all the previously unreleased material from crossroads 1 and put it all on one 90min tape. then all the previously released material but rare stuff and fill another 90min tape. the rest was common material. the 2nd box set couldnt be beat tho.
    he had intended on releasing the garden show at the end of the 87 tour as a double live album but it for some reason didnt happen. many of the 86/87 shows exist as sbd’s. in fact so many of the 85s were brdcst and there is nearly nothing he did from then on that isnt extremely easy to get anyones hands on. he seemingly appeared everywhere and on everything.
    it does seem as if he will be doing only one live performance this year at that apollo theatre hubert sumlin event in february unless something happens between now and new years. maybe that chuck berry thing coming up will bring him out.

  13. I was at the Landover concert in 1974. 461 Ocean Boulevard was the “current” EC album at the time.

    The Capital Centre was a *horrible* venue for concerts. I remember it being hot and too loud.

    As a budding photographer, I remember roaming the hall push-processing my Kodachrome fill to get acceptable shots of the band.

    I don’t recall it being one of Clapton’s better concerts, but as has been said, a weak/tired/drunk Clapton is still better than most…

    oh boy another photographer. You are not going to tell us repeatedly that you have a zillion photos and they are all your friends but you can`t show any of them are you?

  16. audience recordings at landover are horrible but thankfully there are many sbds and fms from there and those sound wonderful. also many pro shot videos with line feed audios.

    fred - u had a 6 year jump on me with photos. i bet u have some incredible shots. 90% or more of mine are off stage candid type. and mostly nyc but sometimes phila sf and la. and i stopped in 95 with 3 or 4 exceptions in 96 and one in 02.

    By darth on Aug 17, 2012

  17. i photographed muddy waters in 1981. tri-x, asa 400, pushed 1 stop because tri-x had an actual asa of 200, f2.8 @ 1/125, printed on ilfobrom grade 2. it’s on my web site. i win.

  21. EC’s two Capital Center engagements in 1974 were the first two times I saw him. The first, in April as I recall, was incredibly disappointing. Aside from a blistering Have You Ever Loved a Woman, he pretty much left the soloing to George Terry. My Cream-fuelled friends and I were devastated. When the October Landover show(s?) were added late in the tour, we assumed it was as an apology/attempt at redemption for the disastrous first visit. The October show (this one, I suppose) was much better, although of course Clapton’s playing was nothing like it had been during Cream. We didn’t know then that we wouldn’t hear the Cream sound until May of 2003, almost 30 years later.
