The collaboration with longtime mentor Cale led to a 2008 Grammy Award for Best Contemporary Blues Album, and the companion tour saw the singer/songwriter join the bluesman for five tracks on the new live release, including three from "Escondido" and two made famous by Clapton: "After Midnight" and "Cocaine."
