Review from Collectors Music Reviews:

Of the many soundboard fragments to surface from Eric Clapton’s 1974 US tour, the earliest belongs to the June 29th show in Philadelphia.  This was the second stop of the tour after the opening night in New Haven the night before (and which only an audience recording circulates).  Electric Smile is the only silver pressed version of the show available.
Like other soundboard tapes this is a high generation dub of a dull sounding tape.  Although it’s clear enough to be be enjoyable, it lacks the dynamics, preventing it from capturing the true atmosphere of the show.  Since the setlist changed nightly it’s hard to say what exactly is missing, but the previous night in he started with “Let It Rain,” ”Drifing Blues” and “Badge” and the following night in New York started with the acoustic set common to the rest of the tour.
It cuts in during “Willie And The Hand Jive.”  There are several minor cuts between some of the songs and one at 5:28 in ”Have You Ever Loved A Woman.”
The medley of “Willie And The Hand Jive” and “Get Ready” is very restrained in Philadelphia, sounding closer to the studio recording that it would as the tour progresses.  “I’d like to propose a toast to you fucking lot” he slurs afterwards.  “And this ain’t Coca-Cola.”
“Blues Power” starts with a short country & western melody and segues into “Have You Ever Loved A Woman.”  Before “Mainline Florida” he pauses “for a bit of bevy to wet my whistle.”

 Afterwards is the first live performance of “Smile.”  Charlie Chaplin composed the music for his 1936 film Modern Times and the words were written  by John Turner and Geoffrey Parsons 1954.  It would be in rotation as a set starter for much of the year in a mellow acoustic arrangement.  In this show its played on electric guitars, but otherwise doesn’t differ much.
Clapton sings some innovative lyrics in “Little Queenie” such as “Meanwhile, back at the ranch, Roy Rogers was giving Trigger one up the behind, you know what I mean?”  The Chuck Berry cover closes the set.
After a cut in the tape a bunch of firecrackers, and Yvonne Elliman’s excited reaction, are heard before they start off the first encore “Layla.”  At this point the balance of the soundboard changes.  The guitars are mixed lower and the vocals are much higher than before.  Only the first half is played and it segues into “Presence Of The Lord.”
A hard rock rendition of “Crossroads” closes the show.  Clapton turns it into a Robert Johnson pastiche by throwing different verses such as “squeeze my lemon until the juice runs down my leg” from “Travelling Riverside Blues.”  They hammer the final chorde several times bringing the show to a climactic finish.
Electric Smile on Outrider comes packaged in a simple single pocket cardboard sleeve with two photos from the tour on the front and back.  Eric Clapton collectors would want it because it is such an early show from an important tour and having the electric “Smile” rarity in such a good recording is a plus.  However there are much better performances from the era to choose from that this isn’t an essential title to have.

LINEAGE: My Silver CD>EAC(secure mode)>FLAC

COMMENTS: A very good soundboard, with the rare electric Smile arrangement.

Do not share in lossy format.

- This was a very special show for me and all in attendance.  It was 11 days after the passing of Jerry Garcia, and Bobby was visibly emotional throughout.  There wasn't a dry eye in the house, including my own, during Knockin. Bobby is also chatty throughout the show, and makes a couple references to what is on all our minds throughout the show
- Every Light Shines On Me is Matthew Kelly solo, written and dedicated to Jerry
- Drum and Bass solo includes NFA>Satisfaction>Amazing Grace
- Levels go very low for ~45 seconds during the drum solo

08/09/95  All     Hampton Beach, NH - Club Casino    S:C,D          A    2                                          
          Last night wasn't a was a wake, and the sermon was given by Robert Hall Weir. Throwing
          Stones: Weir sang over and over: "Papa's gone, we are on our own!" I have never seen such GUTS     by any
          individual like a few thousand people witnessed by four men...especially Weir. At the end of an
          unbelievable Knockin', Weir, in anger and in pain, tossed his guitar to
          the ground and bolted stage
          right! The last verse included, "Why is it such a damn waste/ I believe I'm knockin' on Heaven's door."
          The Club Casino set up speakers outside in the parking lot for the ticketless...a grand gesture. Before
          the set started, Weir said: "Well, if there's anything our friend taught is, it's that music can be used
          to ease us through the sad times." Wasserman's
           Amazing Grace solo was indescribable, with tears streaming
          down his face at its bittersweet end. I have nothing but the deepest admiration for Bob Weir! He is a true
          brother! By all rights, he could have easily been in the bay area, but he chose to play. He needed to get
          it out of his system...a true musician paying homage to family! A true soul! At the end of Knockin', there
          were numerous chants of "JERRY, JERRY" before it segued into the NFA chant... for over 15 minutes!!!! I
          lost it at the end of Knockin'...I broke down... and then the NFA chant! For a Deadhead, there was no
          place you'd rather be than at Hampton Beach. ---author unknown
