EC "Just One Night"

Original released on LP RSO RS-2-4202
(US, May 1980)

"Just One Night" is a live double album by Eric Clapton, released in 1980. It was recorded live at the Budokan Theatre, Tokyo, Japan, December 1979 when Clapton was touring to support "Backless", his latest record at that time. The sleeve contains a Japanese painting by Ken Konno. The album reached No. 2 in the U.S. and No. 3 in the UK, and was certified gold by RIAA. Well, these are the facts. But, personally, I can tell you that “Just One Night” is one of the great Live albums ever appeared in the history of Pop/Rock (it contains the very best version - the slow one - of "Wonderful Tonight", the song that a passionate Clapton wrote for Pattie Boyd in 1977, when they were husband and wife). I bought it in vinyl when it first came in 1980, and in double-cd later. Today the mail man appeared at my door with a little package, wich arrived directly from Japan (less than 2 weeks). The package contained the SHM-CD mini LP (13,5 cm X 13,5 cm), and my friends, it just have a terrific sound! Never heard this powerful album with such quality. If you are a Clapton fan like me, don’t hesitate to offer this precious jewel to yourself. Meanwhile you can download the mp3 files, but of course... isn't the same thing.

For me, the best live album of Eric Clapton, I loved it from the first time I heard it. I especially like the version of Blues Power, but the whole album is wonderful.
