In December 1979, Eric Clapton toured Japan, making a stop at Tokyo's Budokan, where the results were taped and released as the double-album JUST ONE NIGHT. For this tour, Clapton's back-up band included regular Joe Cocker keyboardist Chris Stainton and famed English country picker Albert Lee. The set list ignored any history of the legendary guitarist's work as a band member, instead focusing on either solo material or blues favorites. Going beyond familiar numbers such as "Tulsa Time" and "Wonderful Tonight," EC dug deep for lesser-known nuggets like "If I Don't Be There By Morning" and "All Our Past Times," off THERE'S ONE IN EVERY CROWD.
Clapton's first love remained the blues and its derivatives, so he made sure to pay tribute by covering a number of artists including Maceo Merriweather ("Worried Life Blues"), Otis Rush ("Double Trouble"), J.J. Cale ("After Midnight," "Cocaine") and Robert Johnson ("Rambling On My Mind.") Most importantly, Clapton introduced a seven minute-plus reading of "Further On Up The Road," a song that became one of his live staples.
