This dvd was recorded at London’s Royal Albert Hall as part of the “24 Nights” project, the January 24, 1990 “Four Piece” band show has seen distribution in various forms. Parts were heavily edited (with added special effects) and released officially on the “24 Nights” video; other portions were broadcast in Australia and New Zealand as part of the “Four Faces” broadcast. This dvd however features all the 18-tracks performed this night, including the 3 encores with Phil Collins as special guest. On Jan. 18, 1990, Clapton started an ambitious 18-night residency at the Hall, divided up into different approaches to his classic catalogue. For six shows, he performed with a four-piece band; for another six, he expanded it to 13 pieces. Three dates featured a blues band that included Buddy Guy and Robert Cray, and for the final three concerts on the itinerary, he played with the National Philharmonic Orchestra conducted by Michael Kamen, with whom he’d worked on the (still sadly unreleased) ‘Concerto for Electric Guitar.’ Enjoying a resurgence in popularity after the release of 1989’s ‘Journeyman,’ Clapton was filling venues far larger than the 5,200-seat Hall, so what made it so special for him? “It’s a very very comfortable homey place for me. I tend to think of it as mine,” Clapton laughed during a 1990 interview with the BBC. Admitting he’d gotten annoyed while sitting in the audience for a boxing match at the venue, he elaborated on what kept drawing him back to the stage there. “It’s got a very genteel, sophisticated and yet comfortable atmosphere. Like it is like a club,” he mused. “It reminds me of what the Marquee was like in the early days, you know; everybody is very very comfortable at home, and you feel welcome. I don’t have half the nerves there that I have anywhere else.” Describing the atmosphere as “incredibly intimate” and adding that while looking out at the audience from the stage, “you can virtually see the whites of their eyes,” he added, “It’s almost like the house lights are always on, you know. But for some reason, that place — because it’s in a round, all the people are very close to you. It feels like you’re amongst friends.”
