4.0 out of 5 stars What is it with Clapton ? 7 Dec 2013
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
Something has been bothering me of late, concerning EC's studio albums. From Back Home to Old Sock has revealed that EC's studio recordings currently have serious feet of clay. There's something missing, that you cannot really put your finger on: it's as if a yearning is there, but the execution is pointless, or wrong-headed.

That's not to say, however, that his collaborations, and other live albums, lack something: far from it. EC has worked wonders with Wynton Marsalis, reunited with Cream for some excellent concerts in 2005, and given us an amazing live album with Steve Winwood. He's also cut the mustard with the late JJ Cale on The Road to Escondido, and this various artists, EC curated, album shows that the live and collaborative material is what EC currently does best.

It opens with a great Tears In Heaven, and follows that with a nod to the Tulsa sound, with Vince Gill, on Lay Down Sally. Then the guests take over, with an amazing Green Onions by Booker T, Steve Cropper, Albert Lee etc. I have an obscure ferocious take on Green Onions on a Stax 4cd set, and this version summons up that ghost. John Mayer also channels an inner Brothers & Sisters / Harvest mellow rock feel on Queen of California, and what he does with Keith Urban on Don't Let Me Down is amazing. Urban is excellent in recent collaborations with Jimmy Webb and John Fogerty, and this only highlights his brilliance.

I am also fond of Gary Clark Jnr, who also appears on the recent Buddy Guy album, and was a guest on some of the Rolling Stones 50th anniversary gigs. He's a revelation on this album, whether it be with Doyle Bramhall, electric blues, or acoustic blues.

5.0 out of 5 stars Some Great Music. 24 Nov 2013
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
Despite all the problems with the DVD/Bluray, you can't really get away from the fact that there are some really great performances on this CD/download. You don't get all the tracks that are on the DVD, but you get most of them. I still prefer to have a physical disk rather than just downloading the tracks.

I like that they have published a CD/download this time. It will save me time ripping the tracks off the DVD so I can add them to my MP3 collection.

There are quite a few artists new to the Crossroads series as well as many of the old favourites. If you're a fan of the Crossroads franchise, I don't think you'll be disappointed.

I'm sure this collection of tracks will give me many hours of happy listening.

4.0 out of 5 stars Great concert! 7 Dec 2013

A beautiful double CD with a superb cast and really enjoyable performances, with ragged vocals and shining traded solos. One of the best blues releases of 2013.

4.0 out of 5 stars Great blend of Guitarists 7 July 2014
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
Can't quite justify the five stars as it should be good anyway for a live performance of greats, bought it because of Gary Clark Jnr an emerging talent and the legendary Buddy Guy which then made me buy his latest album Rhythm and Blues which is definitely five stars.

Do you like guitar music? Do you like blues? Then why isn't this in your collection already? It is? I apologise...

Must say this was disappointing, quite mediocre in fact, one or two very good tracks but mostly artists seemed to be going through the motions
