このツアーは、長年クラプトンの右腕的存在となっているドイル・ブラムホール二世が初めて起用されたもので、今聴き返しても彼のサポートがいかに楽曲を活力溢れたものにしていたかが判ります。さらにキーボードにはクラプトンの60年代からの親友だった故ビリー・プレストンが2001年ツアーに続いて参加していました。Got To Get Better In A Little Whileで聴かれる躍動感溢れるクラビネットは、まさに彼の真骨頂とも言えるプレイです。そしてバックの女性コーラスには、現在にも繋がるミシェル・ジョンとシャロン・ホワイトが初めて起用されたツアーでもありました。黒人女性ならではのソウルフルなコーラスワークが楽しめます。しかし何といっても注目すべきはドイル・ブラムホールのプレイです。前ツアーまでのアンディ・フェアウェザー・ロウの地味なサポートとは打って変わってのアグレッシヴなプレイには耳を奪われます。Let It Rainのブリッジ部での艶やかなプレイに始まり、Got To Get Better In A Little Whileでのクラプトン顔負けのワウワウを駆使したソロ、そしてこの人の右に出る者はいないと断言できるLaylaのイントロでのオリジナル・バージョンを重視したナイスなサポートぶりが光っています。2000年のB.B.キングとのアルバム『RIDING WITH THE KING』で彼の実力を確信したクラプトンは、70年代のジョージ・テリー以来となるLaylaの後奏でのソロをドイルに任せるまでになっています。そして彼から引き継いで閃光のような速弾きをクラプトンは炸裂させます。ドイルの参加によってクラプトンが刺激を受け煽られていたことは明らかで、I Shot The Sheriffの後奏のソロ、Have You Ever Loved A Womanでの凄まじいソロにもそれが現われています。アンコールの2曲にはオープニング・アクトを務めたクラプトンのお気に入り若手ギタリスト、ロバート・ランドルフが飛入りし、卓越したペダル・スティールでのプレイを披露しています。聴きどころ満載、聴きごたえ十分の2004フランクフルト。Beanoレーベルよりの、限定プレスでのリリースとなりますので、お早めのオーダーをお願いします。
