April 26, 1977. “OLD GREY WHISTLE TEST 1977” recorded at the BBC Theater is included. It was made from the official video and the introduction of “BBC VIDEO” nostalgic at the beginning (and outro) has been inserted. Once this video was officially released with VHS and Laser Disc, it has not been formalized as DVD even in the 21st century as well as Blu-ray. It is a famous story that Clapton was drunk at the time of this video recording, and when introducing female chorus, Yvonne · Eriiman of the time, Luji did not go around, there are scenes to expose “Ivenne · Oliman” and abomination. It is an unthinkable appearance from his current stoic appearance, but also looking back at the fact that Clapton of the 1970s was this way, it is also the second time to look back on his career that reached 50 years. The stage that started with acoustic and slowly progressing is the “raid back” that he practiced at that time. Even if it says it is not a bad content, there are also places that show us the true Clapton ‘s clear taste in the middle “Tell The Truth” and two final songs “Further On Up The Road” and “Badge”. On the solo career of Clapton, complete appearance of the appearance video in the British BBC music program “OLD GREY WHISTLE TEST 1977” familiar for the first time his “moving figure” first appeared in high quality video. It can be said that it is an essential piece of all rock and fan.

1977年4月26日。BBCシアターで収録された「OLD GREY WHISTLE TEST 1977」を収録。公式ビデオから作製されたもので、冒頭(とアウトロ)に懐かしの「BBC VIDEO」イントロダクションが挿入されています。かつてはVHSとレーザーディスクで本映像はオフィシャル・リリースされていましたが、ブルーレイ化は勿論、21世紀にはいっても正式なDVD化もなされていません。この映像収録時のクラプトンが酔っ払っていたことは有名な話で、当時の女性コーラス、イヴォンヌ・エリマンを紹介する際には呂律が回らず、「イヴェンヌ・オリマン」と、醜態を曝す場面もあります。現在のストイックな彼の佇まいからは考えられない姿ですが、70年代のクラプトンはこうだったということも振り返り、50年に達した彼のキャリアを振り返るのも乙なものでしょう。アコースティックで始まり、ゆったりと進行していくステージは当時彼が実践していた「レイドバック」そのものです。と言っても内容が悪いわけではなく、中盤の「Tell The Truth」や終盤の2曲「Further On Up The Road」「Badge」 で本来のクラプトンらしい冴えを見せてくれるところが観ものでもあります。クラプトンのソロ・キャリア上、彼の「動く姿」が初めてお目見えしたことでお馴染みの、イギリスBBCの音楽番組「OLD GREY WHISTLE TEST 1977」での出演映像を高品質な映像で完全収録。全てのロック・ファン必携の一枚と言えます。
