68 songs... 5 hours long... great show
This concert is one of the main reasons I believe he's the one of the greatest guitarists to ever live so I'll what I said there - I honestly can't believe this isn't number one on the list. This concert and really all of Clapton's music is so personal to me and so many millions of people in this world who've been inspired to pick up a guitar because of him. I remember never particularly liking the guitar as an instrument, whether it was to play with or to listen to, but this concert changed everything for me.

I actually watched this when it aired... Great performance!
It's ok but it is not as good as his 68 comeback show.V 1 Comment
One of the best concerts of the Doors. Lysergic frontman Jim Morrison on fire and good work from the band. Unbeliable The End version
One of the best free concerts everV 1 Comment

How can this be so far down the list...it's top 10 if not top 5 easy!
It's primarily due to ignorance, as well as the age group, exposure and preferences of most of the users on the site. - Billyv
There's a video of the whole concert (over 4 hours) that shouldn't be missed - Billyv
It would have been amazing to have been there.
Jackie debuted all new material and ran the show like a professional emcee. All at the age of 12! - BobG
