I must have seen this movie when I was about 8 back in 1990 I remeber loving it, the music the story. The sound track is fantastic its all Ry Cooder and its pure delta style blues. Because of this film my music collection swells with old blues records and I even play slide guitar.

A point to make thoight the fantastic guitar battle isn't included on this c.d. instead it was realeased on steve Vai's the Elusive Light and Sound Vol.1. If you can get it cheap its well worth it.

Even if you haven't seen the movie but love Ry Cooder you should still get this cd.

Brilliant laid back slide guitar blues, highlight is Willie Browns song, note that this does NOT contain the guitar duel from the end of the film...

Curious album. Billed as a "soundtrack" - yet neither the Title track, or "Down In Mississippi" are actually in the movie (if my memory serves me correctly).

People have often lamented the exclusion of the "guitar duel" at the end, and I have to say for my money , it should have been included. It's a massive part of the film sountrack , AND includes fantastic guitar playing by both Cooder and Vai.

What nobody else has mentioned , is that there is LOADS of other music from the film score missed out - which is a great shame...

What we really have here, is a "songs from AND inspired by the film" type album.

It's really just another Ry Cooder album with Crossroads, the blues,and Mississippi as it's concept, just like "Chavez Ravine" was about L.A.

The album is a great listen however, every track is top notch - amazing origional take on Crossroads.This is an uptempo gospel/rhythm and blues version - not the Ry Cooder / Terry Evans - Robert Johnson recreation from the movie. There could have been more letting loose with his guitar in some songs, but I may be being pedantic here...

4.5 stars..

Saw the film on Sky TV and just had to have the soundtrack. Ry Cooder and Steve Vai play some of the most progressive blues I've heard in 15 years as a blues fan. An excellent introduction to blues for all music lovers. Buy the disc, get your air guitar tuned up and enjoy.

Ry Cooder nails it every time. Good collection, a bit eclectic and not always "pure" blues, but a nice listen - good soundtrack for a not-so-great film.

Its as good as I remember and well put together - if only they could have included the guitar duel from the film.

I remember seeing the movie Crossroads and falling in love with the mellow sounds and the rich deep south melodies. I'm no musician but this music gets into your soul - if you want some real old blues (Down in Missisipi - JB Lenior style) through to the most amazing guitar intro in the first track 'Crossroads' then make your purchase, sit-a-spell and enjoy.
