ERIC CLAPTON
Tulsa Tops Were Here! [ECDR 762/3, 2CD]

Live at the Convention Center, San Antonio, November 12, 1976. Very good soundboard.

Here’s one to add to your Eric Clapton collection, on the No Reason To Cry tour.

Thanks to the person who shared this in 2006.

Here’s a comment from Geetarz:

It was a dark and stormy night, and deep in the inky shadows, a single street light illuminated a guitar player, wailing the blues in the darkness of his soul. Well, not really, I just always wanted to use that line and this was as good a place as any!

This is a nice soundboard, and a fun show. Certainly not many pyrotechnics, but this tour had a certain laid back vibe that’s just right on a summer night with the windows open, the stereo on, and a nice glass of scotch (rocks). I usually say “play this fucker loud, and enjoy!” but this is more of a “groove” thing so in this case, you have dispensation to play at normal levels.

  10. btw thats gary moore’s still got the blues, leadbelly’s goodnight irene, peter tosh’s till your well runs dry, the jazz standard all of me and george and ira gershwin’s love is here to stay. i figure some might be curious.

    i wonder if ec will do any tv appearances to promote the new cd. perhaps an fm or tv brdcst of one of the shows. maybe one or more of them will leak out from the sbd. i know all of them will get recorded from the audience.

    By darth on Feb 6, 2013

  11. old news boy, you gotta come up out of the cellar now and then.the world is passing you by. hey its tuesday, weiners and kd day yahoo!’

    gotta go back to the health center where you can eat your crackers in bed and get your meds on time,lol

    By Miles Long on Feb 6, 2013

  12. “i wonder if ec will do any tv appearances to promote the new cd.”

    im sure youll be the first to tell us if he’s on the view. i heard he’s going to be in a bar band that plays at paddy’s pub in its always sunny in philadelphia.

    By barth on Feb 6, 2013

  13. darth, that’s some first rate sleuthin’ you did there boy, are you some kinda 00 spy, jest like Jethro Bodine? There mus be anuther house on top o’ yore basement!

    Here’s a lot of good info on Eric Clapton- http://www.ericclapton.com

    And here’s the bad news on his new album: “The album explores romantic standards of the 30’s, reggae, soul, rock, and includes a stand out playful collaboration with Paul McCartney, to create an experience that is quintessential Clapton.”

    Uh oh. Not looking forward to this one. Looks like he spent almost as much on the album cover as the Rolling Stones did with Gloom And Doom and GRRR!. Read it and weep, people: http://tinyurl.com/a68k8qt

  18. LAYLA REMINDS ME OF DELORES CAUDLE (OF CHESLEY) . WHEN I HEAR THE SONG I REPLACE LAYLA WITH DELORES. I FEEL THE SAME WAY ERIC DID WHEN HE WROTE THE SONG ABOUT GEORGES WIFE PATTI.

    By allan corlett on Feb 7, 2013

  19. What? Allan please kick the glue habit, it’s making you sound like you don’t have a clue what your talking about! Now my son Darth is a man who knows what’s what in Music, ask him anything…he’s like MAX THE 2000 year old mouse!

    By Darth Mom on Feb 7, 2013

  20. In case anyone is interested in this show as opposed to the other topics mentioned: The sound quality of this set is not great. I would call it “fair to good” soundboard. Perhaps this comes from a cassette tape copy. The mid range (including lead vocal and guitar) are ok but the high end isn’t there (either that or the drummer had no cymbals) and the bass is boomy. The drum sound is poor - the percussionist is higher in the mix, at least early on. The recording is nice enough to enjoy the show but that is about it.

  24. if anyone wants to hear the first song released to fans from the new cd -
    http://soundcloud.com/bushbranch-surfdog/eric-clapton-gotta-get-over
    this is one of the 2 songs eric wrote. the 10th track on the cd.

    and no.. i stopped taking pics completely in 2002. i mostly stopped in 95 but i did a little more in 96 97 and 02. shot a couple of shows and a few conventions.
    i havent shot eric since 95. the earliest time ive seen him was 74. i didnt start shooting him til 83 tho. the best on stage shots i have of him are from the final show in 86.

  26. i listened to the youtube link you provided oh king of the kodak paper,sounds lame as usual
    Clappers hasn`t really dug in for quite some time. Can`t see anyone getting excited about this rehashed crud.

    By dunktank willie on Feb 16, 2013

  27. can’t see anyone getting excited over your lame attempts at humor either

    By joe psycho on Feb 16, 2013

  28. lemme know how disappointed you are after you shell out real money for the clappers crud or are you like darth and just steal it ?

    By dunktank willie on Feb 16, 2013

  29. did u listen to the song on youtube w/o paying for that priviledge? eric himself didnt post it there. i wonder how many illegitimate recordings posted on yt and official recordings that u didnt pay for the right to listen to and enjoy u clicked on youtube for. i also wonder.. while u wont exactly admit it.. how many items u have dl’d both official and unofficial without paying. the artists dont want u to have these recordings on this site and other sites like this. yet u dont care do u? i dont believe for a minute u only own licensed product that u have paid for. granted i agree with the probable argument that u will throw up about bootlegs dont hurt them but pirated product does if its in print etc. hell ive been using that one since 75 myself. u dont know what i ’steal’ and what i pay for. but get off your high horse and dont point fingers unless u are totally innocent. but since u cant prove u are.. stfu!!

    By darth on Feb 16, 2013

  30. Darth, i `m typing very slowly so you can get the full meaning.
    we all know about your stealing and selling it is available online if anyone wants to search for the arsehole who went to jail for selling bootlegged material.

  36. i dont use other names on here.
    i have also never sold a single cd or dvd. i didnt start downloading til 2004. i didnt start burning cds til may 06. i didnt burn my first dvd til about 4 yrs ago. things u may read in newsgroups and message boards and chat rooms is not factual. its posted there by people like yourself. they know no more than u do. they made up their info just like u do. if someone makes up something and another runs with it that doesnt make it fact. newsgroups and such are not moderated for accuracy. anyone can say anything they want just like they do here. u can say u know positively that jeffrey dahmer killed jfk. u saw him do it. it will show up on google search engines. 100s of people can respond to it and it will show up for years when u search for the persons name mentioned. others can back up the idiots who say yeah me too. some can even say yeah he killed my father i know its true. its ridiculous. some people.. not many mind u.. but some are above it all enough to know not to pay it any attention. ive been hearing about how i went to jail for over 10 years. sometimes people tell me i went to jail for 10 yrs. sometimes i hear that im actually currently in jail and i am using a snuck in cell phone to post messages on here. i have heard that i killed 2 people in nyc. i have heard that i drugged and raped women. i have heard incredible stories. some even reported that im dead. the methods that i died were incredible. in some i killed myself others i was shot. hit by a train bus etc. ive been dealing with this shit since aug 98. another sniveling idiot like u on here wont matter much. u wanna believe what u believe thats fine. i dont care. i dont and have never sold any cds or dvds. i have never sold anything pirated in my life. i have never done time for pirating or actually selling anything pirated or bootlegged in my life. your information on this is incorrect. dont believe what people tell u. how slowly u type is a reflection on u not me. it still shows up all at once. how slowly i read it is another story. u schmuck.
    im not the one hiding on a different name here. funny thing about that. isnt it. u hide on another id and attack and accuse me and youre to be believed. wow.
