Why didn't they release this?

This is a fantastic piece. It provided the genesis for Martin Scorcese's recent series on the blues; why couldn't it have been as good?

Anyway, this is just breathtaking, and any Clapton/blues fan should try and get a hold of a copy. His playing is incendiary, especially on 'Early in the morning', 'Groaning the blues', 'it hurts me too', and 'Ain't Nobody's Business', which starts off with just the piano and vocal, and Clapton finishes off with an amazing solo, just drenched in sweat.

Maybe in a few years, the record company will get its thumb out and release this.
