Eric Clapton will release a double-disc live album and a separate DVD under the title "One More Car, One More Rider," Nov. 5 via Reprise/Duck. The audio discs wee recorded last year at Los Angeles' Staples Center and at Tokyo's famed Budokan Hall, while the DVD is drawn only from the L.A. shows. "One More Car" will also be available as a "combo-pak" with both the CD and DVD.
The 19-track album is loaded with Clapton favorites, including "Layla," "Cocaine," "Wonderful Tonight," "Sunshine of Your Love," and "Tears in Heaven." Also featured is more recent fare such as "Reptile," "Change the World," and "My Father's Eyes." The set closes with a rendition of "Somewhere Over the Rainbow."
Clapton is backed on "One More Car" by Nathan East (bass), Steve Gadd (drums), Andy Fairweather Low (guitar), Greg Phillinganes and Billy Preston (keyboards), and former E Street Band member David Sancious (keyboards and guitar). He has hinted the 2001 tour may be his last.
According to a statement, Clapton gleaned the project's title from "a fairground ride barker. [He] heard the man calling out, repeatedly, 'One more car, one more rider!' to fill the last seat in the last car available for each ride."
"One More Car" is Clapton's first concert set since his landmark 1992 "Unplugged," which won multiple Grammys. His most recent studio album, "Reptile," debuted in March 2001 at No. 5 on The Billboard 200.
