I'm surprised this hasn't been mentioned yet (especially by our buddy Tom G)
but a new Eric Johnson dvd came out on tuesday. Recorded in 1988, it is EJ's performance from the "Austin City Limits" tv show.
The setlist is:
2. Love Or Confusion
3. Steve's Boogie
4. Trail OF Tears
5. Western Flyer
6. East Wes
8. Camel's Night Out
9. Emerald Eyes
10. Cliffs Of Dover
11. Desert Rose
13. Are You Experienced?
All i can say is that every guitar player reading this should make an effort to see the dvd. This is EJ in his prime!!!
It's also interesting to note when comparing this to the Crossroads dvd that EJ's strange taste in shirts hasn't changed much
Speaking of comparisons, watch this performance of "Desert Rose" with the one on "Crossroads"- yikes!!!!!!!!
The last 4 songs in a row are stunning, but the whole show is amazing really. The performance of "Are You Experienced" features EJ doing Hendrix's backward
solo from the record live (!!!!!!!!!!), and is one of the most incredible things i've ever seen in my 30+ years of being a "guitar fanatic".
The dvd runs an hour long, and there are no bonus features at all, which was disappointing, but for my money, this was still worth every penny.
