This is a Reseed of Mid-Valleys remaster of the original video torrented here on dime,the only change is to the Info file and a new MD5 I created.This was the first night of the three night run at MSG and although the band was a little sloppy (with only Two Hours rehearsal time:See quote from Clapton's Biography about this below),the energy in the crowd was incredible...(I was there!!)

Comments by EC himself in his new autobiography about these 3 shows....

'...In October I caught a plane to NYC, where Cream had agreed to perform three shows at the MSG. In many ways, I wish we had left it at the Albert Hall, but the offer we were made was too good to refuse. We walked into a rehearsal room the day before the first show and did a meager two-hour run-through without breaking a sweat. Of course, we didn't need to practice too much. We were above that. In that short amount of time our mind-set had gone back to the sixties, and once again we were flying high on our egos.

As a result, and this of course is just my opinion, the NYC shows were a pale shadow of what we sounded like in London. Lack of rehearsal was one thing, but it reflected something else. The arrogance was back. Also MSG is a big place, and we sounded small and tiny there. I repeat I'm only stating my opinion, but for me the heart had gone out of it, and also a certain amount of animosity had crept back in. Maybe it was the money , who knows, but I did know that enough was enough and I would probably not be passing this way again.....'

Eric Clapton: guitar, vocal
Jack Bruce: bass guitar, harmonica, vocal
Ginger Baker: drums, vocal

I beieve Mid-Valley Remastered(Eq'd) Zackman's Audio recording of this show and dubbed it onto the video when remastering.

Zackman's AUDIO Info:Recording Title-
"Do What You Like!:

CoreSound Binaurals>Sony PCM1>Sony POC-DA12MP Optical Link>Philips stand alone burner...
Recorded by sad Zackman from Section 112

Oh the joy! The anguish! The sexy girl in the fourth row who nearly orgasmed to "Politician" (what IS it about the line "Hey now, baby, get into my big, black car"??!!). The curious audience participation from the generally quiet surroundings around me (slightly side/back stage on Jack's side) during, of all songs, "Toad"! The latter of which gives rise to the title of this particular recording...

...Using a two hour DAT tape, and a fresh set of batteries, panic began to set in around the time of the false start to White Room, as a glance at the meters showed one bar left, and approximately 15 minutes of tape. Would they play the same set as London? Could I risk changing tape and battery between White Room and the next song? (Mind you, as any field recorder knows, there is no way of knowing what or how long the next song will be, let alone the length of the banter in between...and the only pause between songs of any length up to this point was after Rollin' and Tumblin', as Eric chuckled, "You okay? You ready?" at Jack's winded state of health after his wailing harmonica/vocal jaunt that number, and even that pause was only about 20 seconds....I decided to risk it and let the tape run....and as Ginger launched into an extended solo, my gaze alternated between the time remaining counter on the DAT, the battery bar, and Eric's non-chalance sitting in the darkness on the side of the stage chatting to a stagehand about this and that, joined by Jack a few MINUTES later while Ginger still played, and even Jack finally rolled up his sleeve and glanced at his watch and he and Eric shared a giggle as I fidgeted frantically to get the extra batteries, and a fresh tape, and remember which way the batteries went in, and again thought "Should I swap out now during "Toad"? Did they launch into a new song out of Toad in London? Will the battery please, please, please hold out for another 5 minutes, when lo and behold, the stage hand wiped the neck of Jack's bass, handed him his guitar, and he and Eric rejoined Ginger for the conclusion of a ten minute Toad, the crowd went wild, and just before I quickly swapped out tapes and batteries, as the lights dimmed during the pre-encore applause, I noticed there were 2 minutes left to spare....oh the joy! the anguish! Just another day in the life of a taper...

Geetarz Comments:

A digitally remastered version of the original "Men Without Legs", done by Bill F. some years back.

The tweaking makes the songs much more listenable, but also has the unfortunate side effect causing some artifacts in the quiet passages between songs.

Performance-wise, the Woking shows are always fun, and this is no exception.

Of note, E plays the "Acoustic" arrangement of "Layla", but on Electric guitar.
