Show Notes: 

The band travelled in private rail carriages hired from the Orient Express for the European Leg of the Backless Tour. Filmmaker Rex Pike was given unprecidented access on-state and off to film a fly-on-the-wall style documentary. Over 120 rolls of film were shot across Europe and in England. Edited to roughly 2 hours, "Eric Clapton And His Rolling Hotel" was shown at a few film festivals, but never released.  

This concert was filmed (3 cameras) and recorded in its entirety for the documentary project.
