Richard Clapton is giving his fans the full Clapton experience at his sideshows during Red Hot Summer fans.
At the pub shows along the tour, Richard can expand the set and go deeper into the albums.
That has proven a treat for Richard Clapton fans, we tend to know the word for every song off every album.
The Clapton classic ‘The Best Years Of Our Lives’ was at the Spotted Mallard shows. It was absent from the larger theatre shows of 2018.
‘Goodbye Tiger’, the title track from arguably Richard’s greatest album ‘Goodbye Tiger’ was introduced as “a song about Melbourne” although legend has it that it was started out in Sydney when Hunter S. Thompson came to town and was finished a few days later after a flight to Berlin.
The ‘Goodbye Tiger’ classic ‘Deep Water’, clearly is Sydneycentric.
‘I Am An Island’, (the original recording featuring Jon Farriss and an uncredited Jimmy Barnes) is still one of the finest examples of Australian Rock ever.
