Derek and the Dominoes: Live at the Fillmore - Review

Derek and the Dominos Live at the Fillmore was recorded at two performances in October 1970. It replaced an earlier album entitled In Concert by adding four songs and replacing three others with alternative takes. This includes the same band line up as Derek and the Dominos only studio album Layla and Other Assorted Love Songs excluding Duane Allman.  After all, he was only a guest on it and not a member of the band. 

Live at the Fillmore includes plenty of extended jamming throughout the two discs with five songs clocking in at over 10 minutes, several considerably longer. Many of the song selections come from the CD's Layla and Other Assorted Love Songs and Eric Clapton.   The versions of "Bottle of Red Wine" and "Have You Ever Loved a Women" are brilliantly played and are some of the many highlights.  

Derek and the Dominos Live at the Fillmore is Eric Clapton at his peak and his features perhaps his best supporting cast. If you want to hear Eric Clapton melting guitar solos off of his fret board this your front row ticket. As of this writing we rank this as Eric Clapton’s best live effort. If you enjoy this release you will also cherish the Derek and the Dominos 20th Anniversary Edition, particularly the jams.  ~ by Barry Small ©
