Eric Clapton’s 2017 concert in San Diego with J.J. Cale is about to be released as a live album.
Live In San Diego with Special Guest J.J. Cale was recorded on March 15, 2007. J.J. Cale died on July 26, 2013.
Clapton’s band at the time included guitarists Derek Trucks (now of the Tedeschi Trucks band) and Doyle Bramhall II. The concert came just after Clapton and Cale collaborated in the 2006 album Road To Escondido. At the time Eric said, “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.”
Live In San Diego With Special Guest JJ Cale will be available September 30.
