News has been slow coming in from North Carolina. At the show in Charlotte on 2 April, Eric Clapton seemed more laid back than expected in the first part of the show according to longtime Where's Eric! contributor, Steve Proctor. He continued, "'Got to Get Better in a Little While' was an early highlight while 'I Shot The Sheriff' was good but fell short of past performances. With the Robert Johnson set, things finally reached the stratosphere. 'Sunshine Of Your Love' was powerful and a welcomed return to the setlist."

American radio host and legendary program director, Redbeard, celebrates the 45th Anniversary of the classic album Disraeli Gears in a new episode of InTheStudio: The Stories Behind History's Greatest Rock Bands with guests Eric Clapton and Jack Bruce. Having established themselves as the "power trio" on their debut album, Cream took a bit of a left turn sonically with the help of producer Felix Pappalardi on Disraeli Gears. When released in November 1967, it introduced a psychedelic sound to the blues and spawned a number one single, "Sunshine of Your Love". But as Clapton recalls, the band's perception of themselves during their rise to stardom was surprisingly humble.
