5.0 out of 5 stars A must-have collection 13 Feb 2001
By A Customer
Format:Audio CD
This collection is amazing. It represents Clapton at his absolute best, performing most of his great studio tracks and some rare medleys you won't find anywhere else. Although a few tracks on the first disc are also available on 'EC Was Here', most of this stuff is totally unavailable.
'Eyesight To The Blind / Why Does Love Got To Be So Sad?' is a standout track, in which Clapton gets to prove once and for all that he is a great vocalist, performing a really raw, growling version of the song. This compilation also features a great version of Little Wing, which is much better than the studio version he recorded with Derek and the Dominos.
As a bonus you also get a couple of previously unreleased studio tracks which Clapton recorded during the seventies, at least one of which should certainly have made it on to an album.
This is undoubtadley one of the best collections you can get - of any artist, and unlike some other box sets which seemed to be filled with obscure guitar fiddling which isn't really that listenable, this will have a place in your CD player for a long, long time.

5.0 out of 5 stars Boxed Sensation. 3 April 2002
By Mr. Colin Rankin VINE VOICE
Format:Audio CD
Buy both,if you can afford it.
Crossroads 1 is the definitive Clapton collection,including about 6 unreleased songs.
Crossroads 2 is an addition that centres on 70's live performances.
The track listing and performances are superb with Clapton belting out Cream classics,Derek And The Dominoes classics,early solo classics (especially Slowhand)and..........wait for it.......an amazing 24 minute collaboration of 'Eyesight To The Blind/Why Does Love Got To Be So Bad' with Carlos Santana live in Providence.............24 minutes sounds an awful long time........but not on this!
The 4 CD set includes many live renditions of Clapton classics not previously on his albums..............,Have You Ever Loved A Woman','Willie And The Hand Jive','Presence Of The Lord','Lay Down sally','The Core','Wonderful Tonight','Crossroads','Cocaine',....an incredible 'Double Trouble'......plus other unreleased tracks like'Cryin'' and 'Water On The Ground'.To name but a few.
This album is simply Clapton performing magically,with great session musicians and great 'name' artists.

5.0 out of 5 stars LOVE IT LIVE 19 Nov 2002
Format:Audio CD
If you like Eric best when he plays the Blues, then wallow in this 70's live-fest. Clapton plays like you know he could and you wish he still would. 35 tracks of Blues genius, every one a winner, even Tulsa Time (my all time least favourite Clapton track) sound okay on this! The extended length of the tracks gives full time for some of the best solos you'll ever hear from the man (or anyone else, come to that!) Remastered sound quality is top notch. Only one problem : which of the 4 CDs do you play first !

5.0 out of 5 stars Live in the seventies - take two 16 Mar 2013
Format:Audio CD
Perhaps the release of the 1983 CD Live In The Seventies had suggested that something much more fitting was needed to reflect Eric Clapton's live work throughout his first decade as a solo artist. Although it would be a long wait for this 4 CD box set, it was well worth it.

Covering tours in support of five studio albums, there was a wealth of live material to draw from which ably demonstrated how Eric frequently reworked songs to keep sets varied - not only between tours but also from night to night. Every show would be different and if this approach had its risks, the results could be spectacular. There is an emphasis here on numbers from Slowhand, Eric's most successful studio release (with very little from other albums) and on the blues.

Oddly for an album titled Crossroads 2 (live in the seventies), it opens and closes with studio tracks. In effect, these serve as a prologue and epilogue to the live material - introducing Eric's American band for this period, through to its dissolution and a new beginning. For that reason, although the later all-British band's live album Just One Night was recorded in December 1979, it doesn't feature here. Also (unlike the single album compilation album mentioned) it doesn't include Derek & The Dominos - so this box set actually covers just half of the seventies, from 1974-1978.

Almost all the tracks were previously unreleased. But although Disc 1 includes five numbers said to be "previously released on EC WAS HERE in different mix", there's much more to two of these than the wording implies. "Presence Of The Lord" is over two minutes longer (8:48 / 6:40) and "Rambling On My Mind/Have You Ever Loved A Woman" is also longer (8:16 / 7:38) than "Rambling On My Mind" is on E.C. Was Here.
