Eric Clapton, Santana: Nassau Coliseum, Long Island

Ian Dove, Cash Box, 12 July 1975

ERIC CLAPTON, kicking off his new American tour, provided the perfect program for his fans — a total recycling of his old hits. Initial baying for 'Layla' was cut off when he began his appearance with this most durable hit. From then on it was 'Bell Bottom Blues', 'Sunshine Of Your Love', 'I Shot The Sheriff' and so on, reworking most of the material associated with him from Cream to last year.
