All of the music recordings on this site are recordings of independent origin (ROIOs) Music that has not been officially released. If you are an artist or a legal representative of an artist and you do not want your ROIO shared on my site for free among your fans (and creating new fans), just tell me in the comment area and I will remove them. By the way these recordings exist. They won't go away. All of them can be found at various places on line. Sharing just keeps the fans that support the artists from having to get ripped off by purchasing them on auction sites, and it also introduces music to people who would never have known the artist, creating a stronger fan base.

Eric Clapton, Tokyo Japan, October 1993 (SBD)

This one is a really nice Eric Clapton recording, recorded over several nights at Tokyo's Budokan Theater.  It has a great mix of Clapton doing traditional blues like his "Cradle Music" stuff, and some of his classic rock, and a little of  the pop hits he received Grammys for.  It appears to be a Soundboard / PreFM  that was mixed for broadcast with a mix of soundboard with some crowd mics used to get that live ambience.  It was taken from some Mid Valley silvers.  This is a must for any Clapton fan

  3. Dave. Thanks for the offer. Truth is I have that show. I posted it and for some reason there was a complaint that it had official material, and it was taken down and my links were removed. I'm still not sure why.
