Wonderful Tonight - On Stage 1978/83/85 The Swingin' Pig Records TSP-CD-196- 1/2, 3/4, 5/6
This well known (6) disc Clapton boot covers a large time period from the late 70's through the early 80's. Though I don't have the original Swingin Pig CD's the following shows make up the boot complete track per track. Sound quality is expectional on all recordings.
Heres what the Clapton FAQ says:
Wonderful Tonight (The Swingin' Pig / SB6) This six-CD box set comprises three complete shows in stunning soundboard quality Santa Monica Civic Auditorium on 11 February 1978, Stadhalle, Bremen on 20 April 1983, and the Richmond, Virginia Coliseum on 22 April 1985 (sourced from the King Biscuit Flower Hour master tapes).
This is one of the last projects to come out of the "golden age of boots".

Heres what the Eric Clapton-FAQ says:
This show from the Santa Monica Civic Auditorium on 11 February 1978, was broadcast on radio and has been widely booted. Almost all are incomplete because only seven of the 18 songs performed were broadcast. Bottom Dollar is a complete soundboard recording which has a gorgeous version of "Peaches & Diesel" plus rare tracks like "Rodeo Man", Fools Paradise" and a late-1970s take on "Bottle Of Red Wine". All the now-classic tracks from Slowhand are also present.
