Dr. John Again -- with Clapton

In an earlier post about Dr. John, I mentioned that I'd heard tell of a live version of him and Eric Clapton performing "St. James Infirmary" as a duet. The other day, in looking around for information about the Oingo Boingo version, I learned that there's a video of that performance on YouTube.

Basically, I'm not a fan of anything Eric Clapton has done in the last, I don't know, 20 or 30 years. But if you're into that sort of thing, there is in fact a humongous (and totally sterile) guitar solo or two, plus Slowhand (bloodlessly) sings several verses.

Also, it's really long.
