Eric Clapton has announced the upcoming release of Live In San Diego – With Special Guest JJ Cale. The album will be released September 30th on Reprise/Bushbranch Records.
Recorded at Clapton’s March 15, 2007 performance at the iPayOne Center in San Diego, CA, this concert was part of a world tour that was much loved by Clapton fans and featured a stellar band that included guitarists Derek Trucks (now of the Tedeschi Trucks band) and Doyle Bramhall II. The two-hour San Diego concert was a highlight of the tour as it featured JJ Cale as a special guest on five tracks (including ‘After Midnight’ and ‘Cocaine’), as well as Robert Cray on the final song of the record, ‘Crossroads.’
After successfully covering several JJ Cale songs over his career, Clapton finally collaborated with him in 2006 on the original album Road To Escondido. At the time, Clapton said “This is the realization of what may have been my last ambition, to work with the man whose music has inspired me for as long as I can remember.” So it is fitting that one year later, Cale joined Clapton on stage for this special concert where they performed five songs together - underlining the mutual respect the two musicians had for each other.
The concert features a superb set list from across Eric’s career. Notably, it includes songs from Eric’s classic Derek and the Dominos album LAYLA, with Derek Trucks playing many of Duane Allman’s original guitar parts.
Clapton’s career, spanning more than 50 years, has resulted in 18 Grammy Awards and the distinct honour of being the only triple inductee into the Rock & Roll Hall of Fame.
