Eric Clapton Preps 10th Anniversary ‘Live in San Diego With JJ Cale’ DVD/Blu-ray

2007 gig also featured Robert Cray, Doyle Bramhall II and Derek Trucks

On March 10 2017 – almost ten years to the day of his concert with special guest JJ Cale – Eric Clapton will release a DVD / Blu-ray of the event. It was filmed live at the IPayOne Center (now the Valley View Casino Center) on March 15, 2007. Live In San Diego With Special Guest JJ Cale has the two legends teaming up on five tracks: Anyway The Wind Blows, After Midnight, Who Am I Telling You?, Don’t Cry Sister, and Cocaine. The show concludes with Robert Cray joining in on Crossroads.

This was the only show on the tour where EC and JJ teamed up. The concert followed the release of their critically acclamied album, The Road To Escondido, by a few months. Remarkably, it was one of a handful of times the friends and collaborators played live together.

“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,” Clapton said of Cale at the time.

The DVD / Blu-ray will not have Little Wing, which was included on the September 2016 CD/Vinyl release.

In addition to the concert, the DVD and Blu-ray includes bonus footage of Clapton and Cale rehearsing “Anyway the Wind Blows” and “Who Am I Telling You?”
