AUGUST 1987

To this concert I was going with my buddy Peter Hartmann. That's the one, who's doing the Jumping Jack in front of the big Eric Clapton poster. I turned also his attention to EC at this time somewhat.

The band consisted of NATHAN EAST on bass, STEVE FERRONE on drums, GREG PHILLINGANES on the keyboards and of course EC on guitar and vocals. Though they've been only four they laid down a mighty sound - also thanks to the excellent background-vocal performance by Greg and Nathan. If one will try to sympathize with it - the 24 NIGHTS' four-piece-band is expressing it.

Before, during and after the concert I was able to make some nice photos.

Unbeaten the CROSSROADS-version at the time. This one I've got also on some bootlegs from this and also later phases. And on AUGUST I was keen anyway...  Interestingly enough this piece never had been released on one of the official live-records, although it's been always part of the setlist until the PILGRIM-times
