3.0 out of 5 stars parts 23 Nov 2013
By Richard
Format:DVD|Verified Purchase
After the previous Crossroads DVD's I was eagerly looking forward to this years performances however apart from some gems in between I am disappointed.
First the continuity is poor, the acts are scattered all over the place, why not show the event and musicians in order they appear? The camera work is shoddy at times and downright awful in places. For instance Booker T's marvellous rendition of "Green Onions" is interrupted by a shot of someone walking in the auditorium showing his ticket to a steward. The camera shakes during other sessions and during one number it is focused on a microphone stand and the artists feet!
Much of the time there are no intorductions so we do not know who is playing in the band. There is a jam session including BB King but you don't know it until a way through. Earl Klugh suffers the most with the shortest performance of all just a few minutes and must have been cut as it only shows his last two numbers, no introduction either.
There is too much of the same style of playing dominated by Doyle Bramhall, so much it becomes monotinous.
However there are moments of inspiration-"Born under a bad sign" with Keb Mo (later to play with Taj Mahal) and Booker T's band including Matt "guitar" Murphy is raunchy as hell and there is a fast paced rendition of the classic "Green Onions".
One man band Gary Clark Jr jaunts through "Next Door Neighbour blues" to the delight of the audience.
The appearance of Keith Richards is a signal for rapturous applause as he plays with Eric on the Key to the Highway.
Its a DVD that you have to dip into to get the best out of, there are moments of magnificent guitar playing and music but it lacks the festival atmosphere of 2007, the sunshine, the quality of camera work and variety of performances.
Crossroads needs a rethink.

3.0 out of 5 stars A bit of a mess - but some good music. 24 Nov 2013
Format:Blu-ray|Verified Purchase
I've bought all the previous Crossroads Festival releases, but this one had me scratching my head from the beginning.

You just don't get the sense of it being a music festival. Being done indoors at Madison Square Garden seems take something away from what we have come to expect. All you get are a mishmash of tracks and artists with no real continuity. Half the time you don't know who is playing as there is no introductions and there is no MC to give any details.

The camera work is awful. Half the time you are looking at the wrong musician. It just doesn't feel connected and there is no sense of the festival atmosphere we have come to expect. It's just put together from a jumble of tracks and you don't really feel like you've watched a festival from beginning to end. Doyle Bramhall seems to have been involved in the mixing of the DVD and he also seemed to be on an awful lot of the performances. He doesn't exactly have a broad range, and this seems to make a lot of it sound the same.

Bad though the technical aspects of the production, continuity and camera work are, you do get some brilliant performances throughout. If you forget this is supposed to be a festival, you get some great tracks. So for the music, I will give it 3 stars.

5.0 out of 5 stars Not the best of the 4 but still very good. 24 Nov 2013
Format:DVD|Verified Purchase
I agree with the other reviewers that the film editing of this event is poor and at times irritating, not good at all. There are enough superb high spots in the performances themselves though to warrant 5 stars for me. There are some real gems here, Gary Clarks Next door neighbour blues for one. Keith Urban is good addition to this years festival, a shame that Susan Tedeschi doesn't appear though, in fact women are in short supply this year. All in all some great playing and good value for money.

3.0 out of 5 stars The music is great, the video quality is poor 23 Nov 2013
Format:DVD|Verified Purchase
Nearly 5 hours of the 2013 Crossroads concert recorded over 2 nights in New York earlier this year. I bought the standard DVD and like the Bluray reviewers have already said the video image quality is very poor, extremely 'grainy'. Sure its indoors and and the light levels are not great but the team that recorded Joe Bonamassa's Tour de Force 4 DVDs this year in for different venues in London did a much better job.

As has been the case in the 3 previous Crossroad concert releases Eric Clapton has assembled some new or less well know faces and showcased some remarkable talent so the content is good, I only listen to stuff in stereo and have to say that some of the audio quality is nothing to write home about either, It's hard to recommend this double DVD set.

Crossroads Guitar Festival 2013 [Blu-ray]Crossroads Guitar Festival 2013 [DVD]
As a huge Clapton fan, I looked forward to this release for months, and bought all 3 formats; Blu-Ray, DVD and CD.
The quality of the BD/DVD is quite appalling and is simply 'not fit for purpose'. On initial viewing I honestly thought that I had a defective disc, but alas, having read the other reviews soon realised it was all down to the sub-standard production.
I realise the profits go to the Crossroads Charity, but this is seriously taking the p***. The picture quality is more like an 80s VHS, with horizontal interference like 'ghosting' lines running across the screen. The camera work is also somewhat suspect at times, but the artistic licence can be forgiven to some extent, whereas the overall lack of 'high definition' on the Blu-ray in particular cannot. Judging by the number of poor reviews on here, this release should be pulled and re-produced, however I doubt if that would be possible as the problem probably lies with the master film. By way of some compensation, the audio is superb.
