Blues Night - Royal Albert Hall, London, Eng. 2/25/91 (2 CDR)
This Royal Albert Hall blues show from 25 February 1991 was broadcast live on BBC Radio 1. Even though this is an excellent soundboard, the playing doesn't live up to the 1990 blues shows but it still makes the "essentials" list. Musical collaborators were Albert Collins, Buddy Guy, Robert Cray, and Jerry Portnoy. Clapton lets it rip on gems from his Bluesbreakers days, such as "Hideaway" and "All Your Love".

Blues From the Heart - The Fillmore, San Francisco 7/11/94 (2 CDRs)
These discs are a compilation from shows recorded on 7, 8 and 9 November 1994. Songs are not in their original order and are missing a second or two from their beginning or end, but this is barely noticeable. Additional cuts not in the PBS-aired special are included. It is worth getting this show just for a fantastic "Five Long Years", and a truly outstanding "How Long Blues". Lots of Acoustic along with electric blues

The Circus Has Left Town - Brighton Centre, Eng. 1/2/92 (2 CDRs)
The people at KTS liked this show so much they released it twice! The AMCOS release is sold as two separate CDs. This is a good audience recording that is a warm-up show for the annual Royal Albert Hall run. Recorded on 1 February 1992, Clapton is amazing on the first three songs: "Anything For Your Love", "Pretending", and "I Shot The Sheriff." It also features the first concert performances of "Tears In Heaven", "Circus", "My Father's Eyes" (plugged), and a rare performance of "Signe". Note that the audio level drops a bit during the acoustic numbers. Some say this set contains the ultimate version of "Layla".

Play With Fire - Royal Albert Hall, London, ENG. 02/17/91 (2 CDRs)
This is a complete nine-piece band performance from the Royal Albert Hall run from 17 February 1991. This absolutely flawless soundboard recording is one of the best Clapton boots ever released a perfect show from lights down to lights up. Several tracks from the BBC Radio 1 master tape were used on 24 Nights. Lots of great unreleased tracks can still be heard on this set. It gets no better than this!
