Eric Clapton - Richmond 1985

After the JJ Cale post now we have his friend Eric Clapton, one of the artists that recorded and played many of JJ's songs.
This recording was made on the Backless U.S. tour on April 25, 1979 in Richmond.
This is apparently from 1985, if any of you has the true Richmond 1979 show and wants to share it with us it would be great!
Edit: This seems to be from the Coliseum in Richmond, Virginia on April 22, 1985.

Sound Quality: 9.5

I'm Sorry, this live have been recorded after 1985, mots of the songs are from the album "Behind the sun" made in 1985... Anyway, the sound is amazing.

Last night I found a reel to reel of what appears to be the Aoril 22, '85 show at the Richmond Coliseum. It has Tulsa Time, Sheriff, Wonderful Tonight, Sally, Badge/Let It Rain. It sounds incredible.

This is an old King Biscuit Show available in WOlfgangs vault. I taped it at the time and wore it out. They said at the time it was the first King Biscuit to be recorded digitally, which is why the sound is so good. I've had a love hate relatioship with Clapton, but the recording and the energy in this show just crackles. Even the songs I don't like sound good on this.

This concert is part of the behind the sun tour in 1985 and this copy you have is not the complete concert the complete concert is 2 discs.
i went to the 28 feb 2nd night of his edinburgh playhouse concerts where the tour kicked off from and it was absolutely awesome and ever since then have been a stalwart eric clapton fan also i had the advantage of a front row seat right in the middle
