EDITORS’ NOTES

Recorded on August 18th and 19th of 2001 at the Staples Center in Los Angeles, One More Car, One More Rider continues Eric Clapton’s tradition of releasing a live album to document each band in his ever-evolving career. This lineup is killer, featuring session wizard Steve Gadd on drums, longtime Clapton trustees Andy Fairweather-Low and Nathan East on guitar and bass, respectively, and on keyboards Michael Jackson affiliate Greg Phillinganes and Beatles soul man Billy Preston. Former E Street Band instrumentalist David Sancious chips in on multiple instruments. The band sounds robust on requisitely thunderous versions of “Layla,” “Sunshine of Your Love," and “She’s Gone,” but the outfit's real skill is displayed in the subtle interplay of “Reptile,” “My Father’s Eyes," and “Change the World.” In terms of reinterpretation, this lineup brings the R&B out of “Badge,” which ends up sounding like a great forgotten Motown song. The crowning surprise, though, is a dreamy rendition of “Over the Rainbow,” arranged in a way Curtis Mayfield might have imagined it

The best live album yet.

Eric and his band are very cool. Many songs in this album are very high level performance.

Eric is god of music. It's truth.

And i bought this album by iTunes. And it's cool, too.

I love Eric, apple and iTunes.

Fantastic.

This is probably my favorite Clapton album. Flawlessly executed. Watch it on YouTube and they are just having a ball.
Eric is at home during this and seems to be thoroughly enjoying himself.

Somewhere Over The Rainbow will make a grown man cry. It does every time, as he speaks to you in a way that touches you.
I played this for my fathers celebration of life, nothing else fit better.

Excellent

One of the best live albums ever made. Clapton paired with Billy Preston on organ, Nathan East on bass and Steve Gadd on drums is magic. Do yourself a favor and buy this album ASAP. You're welcome
