5.0 out of 5 stars ERIC CLAPTON LIVE AND A BOX FULL OF IT !, 7 July 2010
This review is from: Crossroads 2 (Live In The Seventies) (Audio CD)
I am and always have been a huge fan of one of the greatest rock and blues guitarists ever Eric Clapton. He's proved again and again over the years just how inventive and wide-ranging his music can be. A blues great for sure,but when he went more into acoustic music again he proved his absolute worth.He still reigns supreme and why he's not rated even above greats such as Jimi Hendrix and Stevie Ray Vaughan amazes me.They are both stunningly top guitar legends, but when you look at the volume of work EC has produced as well as the wide range of it he surely must rate as among the best ever.Even in this year 2010 reviews are saying how amazing he is live, still setting the standards and still an inspiration so many who take up the guitar. So to this set,all live,all recorded in the seventies and still as fresh and awesome as when the material was first recorded on several varying tours of that period.There's obviously plenty of blues based songs and in some cases different takes on the same song,but each one offers something completely new.I don't think he's ever played any blues number the same twice over.Add to that
songs from the Blind Faith period, the hits like'I Shot The Sheriff','Layla' and 'wonderful Tonight' plus a superb version of the huge Tamla Motown classic 'Loving You Is Sweeter Than Ever' and you have here some quite amazing Clapton music with various line up's he had through that decade.Every note of this box set is worthy,and as a whole gives us hours of proof of just how great a guitarist and fine vocalist he really is.This is a man who over many years now from his days in The Yardbirds,John Mayall's Bluesbreakers,Blind Faith,Delaney & Bonnie and Friends to his incredible solo career as a guitar player,the benchmark and still improving and going forward all these years later.This is a set I totally recommend whether your an EC fan or learning guitar, or want to hear one of the greatest proving it throughout this very fine live collection, you won't regret buying this set because of the enjoyment that comes with every playing of these four discs.Five stars plus.
