About this deal

Disc 2: Wide-eyed And Legless, You Can’t Hurry Love, You Know I Love You, A Salty Dog, Inside Out, Hold On I’m Coming / Soothe Me/ You Don’t Know Like I Know, I Want To Know What Love Is, Whiter Shade Of Pale, The Night Time Is The Right Time, Cocaine, medley: Turn It On Again / Everybody Needs Somebody / Satisfaction / Midnight Hour / Turn It On Again, I Wish, fireworks Pete Townshend: He obviously had some cash-flow problem, because he was selling guitars… to raise ready cash to buy dope.

Eric Clapton: I arranged by long-distance phone calls that there’d be something there for me because my heroin habit was going strong. So I fly over and there’s nothing there, and we can’t score. The highlights came from Eric Clapton, whois in fine form for several songs. The highlight for me being a strong reading of "Stormy Monday," featuring jazz great Chris Barber. "Cocaine" is on the of the more predictable inclusions, but also present are "Lay Down Sally,""Reconsider Baby," and "Willie & the Hand Jive." Another excellent segment of the show finds Ringo Starr delivering energetic takes of a couple well known tunes. Starr can do this stuffin his sleep, as "With a Little Help From My Friends" and "Photograph" find their way into every All-Starr tour he's undertaken in the past twenty years. But for anyone who hasn't yet seen him perform them, itshould be a nice treat. The two shows at the Rainbow may have proved a false dawn for Clapton, but they were recorded for a live album, released as Eric Clapton’s Rainbow Concert in 1973.Pete Townshend: Eric lost two people that he based his whole life on – Jimi Hendrix and Duane Allman– in fairly close succession. So there were a lot of reasons why he wasn’t working. Eric Clapton: Alice and I, stoned out of our heads, turned up late [at the Rainbow], to find Pete and [Clapton’s manager Robert] Stigwood tearing their hair out. The reason for our lateness was that Alice had to let out the waist of the trousers of my white suit, because I had taken to eating so much chocolate of late that I couldn’t get them on.

Alice Ormsby-Gore: I was desperately running around that city trying to score some heroin for Eric. And I remember thinking how stupid it was for me, even then. I did that for him, and for myself, for three years. It was probably childish to be over-protective, but I thought it helped him not to have to face the full horror, himself, of scoring his own heroin supply.With the exception of a March 19 performance in Bahrain, Clapton has not performed live since last September, when he embarked on a brief tour of the southern United States. The trek made headlines at the time because Clapton, an outspoken critic of COVID-19 vaccines and vaccine mandates,vowed to not to play at venues that required proof of vaccination, though he ultimately reneged on that promise.
