These Guys Just Get Better With Age
11 July 2009 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

It's great to see these old pals now in their 60s and enjoying themselves and still entertaining as much as ever, playing music as good as ever. It's scary to remember these guys when they first played together in a band about 45 years ago. The two reminisce about it at length in a bonus feature on this concert DVD.

Keyboard player Chris Stainton, who was a key instrumentalist in Joe Cocker's "Mad Dogs and Englishmen" group in the '60s, belongs with Clapton and Winwood, all being about the same age. It's always good to see the three above-mentioned guys playing together, along with the rest of the group.

Song-wise, that's not a lot new (but even if it's familiar, it's still good) but I did really appreciate Clapton giving it a go on the famous Jimi Hendrix song, "Voodoo Chile." The only other guitarist I've ever seen attempt Hendrix's material was the late Stevie Ray Vaughan. Eric did just fine, too.

Don't overlook the three "bonus" songs offered. For me, "Lowdown," with a great a rockabilly beat, was fantastic and another example of how you can't go wrong with these old pros.
