General notes about The MikeyMikeMaster series: 
Although introduced to the Bluesbreakers with Eric in the 60's when still a schoolboy, MikeyMike first saw EC at Hammersmith Odeon in 1974 but was hooked from that point onward. Since then he has seen Eric play literally hundreds of times on many continents, and from massive auditoriums to small venues with a handful of other lucky people. 

Never wanting to 'miss the moment' he taped that first show and has 'archived' virtually every one he has witnessed since then. From the early days of tape-recorders with built in condenser microphones, via mini-disc, DAT and also visually with VHS-C, 8mm camcorders up to SD cards and beyond, he has built up after over 40 years of recording and videoing a massive amount of archival live recordings of his hero. 

From EC solo in the 70's, his drunken 'lost years' through to his re-emergence as a real guitar hero in the 80's & 90's, the Blues tutorials of the mid-90's, via various eras such as the Roger Waters collaboration to the Jazz influenced Legends. Initially, a lot of his recordings were shared with fellow fans but he soon found many of these eventually appearing on expensive Bootlegs. 

So, he curtailed sharing them.....until now. Realizing that no-one is immortal and not wanting his precious recordings to end up as land-fill, plus with a bit of gentle coercion from a fellow fan, some of the many recordings and videos will shortly be seeing the light of day, many for the first time ever. 

All recordings will be numbered as part of the MMM series, and the videos will receive a watermark making life for people with commercial interests in the tapes, as hard as possible. 

Enjoy them all. Collect the series! 

MMM's simple requests: 
Do not sell this or use it in a video that is sold
Do not modify the info file. Create a second file if needed.
Do not remaster and/or post on other sites that are not 100% free 
Do not convert to lossy formats except for personal use 
Do support the artists 

And finally a special note to fellow Clapton tapers out there: 
If you have not shared your EC recordings or films before, please take this opportunity to start doing so. If you are not sure how to share, if you want some advice or just need someone to digitize your old tapes, please reach out to this email address: Time is passing, and some EC recordings might already be lost forever. Our goal is to ensure rare and unique recordings and films with Eric Clapton, are unearthed and shared for free with fellow EC music fans, before they are lost forever in old shoeboxes. We can even help digitize, remaster and share with respect for your work and efforts recording.
