In Concert is a live double album, recorded by Derek and the Dominos in October 1970 at the Fillmore East and released January 1973.

Six of the album's nine tracks were subsequently included on the 1994 album Live at the Fillmore. The three songs not included are "Why Does Love Got to Be So Sad," "Let It Rain," & "Tell the Truth." Live at the Fillmore also includes these songs, although they are from different sets than the ones appearing here.

Reception

While the album was generally well-received, Lester Bangs wrote in Creem: "[T]his piece of dreck represents one of the nullest excesses in a time when we've all been so drenched in excess as to be totally acclimated to it. . . . The recording quality is poor, the vocals are muddy and barely passable in the first place, but where [the album] really disintegrates is the solos. . . . [T]his is mostly just muddled idiot riffing for no reason at all . . . it's the dullest drabbest flattest saddest thing I've heard in ages." [1]
