5.0 out of 5 stars A must-have collection, 13 Feb 2001
By A Customer
This review is from: Crossroads 2 (Live In The Seventies) (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.
