"This album wasn’t what it was intended to be at all," says Eric Clapton. "It’s actually better than it was meant to be because, in a way, I just let it happen. It’s an eclectic collection of songs that weren’t really on the map—and I like it so much because if it’s a ... Read more in Amazon's Eric Clapton Store

Editorial Reviews

2013 two CD collection containing highlights from Eric Clapton's celebrated music festival. In addition to rousing performances of Blues classics and renowned hit songs, many of the most memorable performances saw artists coming together for some stirring collaborations. Among the highlights were the surprise pairing of John Mayer and Keith Urban for the Beatles' "Don't Let Me Down," Vince Gill and Clapton taking on "Lay Down Sally," Keb Mo and Taj Mahal covering the Sleepy John Estes' song, "Diving Duck Blues," Gill performing "Tumbling Dice" with Urban and Albert Lee and members of the Allman Brothers - Gregg Allman, Warren Haynes and Derek Trucks - joined forces for a haunting acoustic cover of Neil Young's "The Needle and the Damage Done." As you would expect, Clapton features prominently throughout the show. The legendary guitarist also tore through the Derek and the Dominos' classic "Why Does Love Got to Be So Sad" with the Allman Brothers Band, revisiting the time in 2009 when he joined the band during their annual residency at the Beacon Theater in New York.

4.0 out of 5 stars Great music, but this should really be a three-disc set November 19, 2013
Format:Audio CD
I love the rock, blues, and country performances on this album. It includes most of the guitar and vocal greats who appeared in fine form at Crossroads 2013 in New York City's Madison Square Garden. These festivals have been held every three years since 2004 to benefit Eric Clapton's Crossroads Centre, a drug treatment facility in Antigua. At 29 tracks, however, the two-CD set only presents highlights from the 2013 festival. A much fuller version is available on DVD or Blu-ray with a total of 45 performances spread over nearly five hours. What's missing from the CDs? Some classic songs:

1. Time Is Tight - Booker T. with Steve Cropper
2. Born Under A Bad Sign - Booker T. with Steve Cropper, Keb Mo , Blake Mills, Matt Guitar Murphy & Albert Lee
3. Everyday I Have The Blues - The Robert Cray Band with B.B. King, Eric Clapton & Jimmie Vaughan
4. Spider Jiving - Eric Clapton with Andy Fairweather Low
5. Next Of Kindred Spirit - Sonny Landreth
6. Cry - Doyle Bramhall II with Alice Smith
7. Big Road Blues - Kurt Rosenwinkel with Eric Clapton
8. Whipping Post - The Allman Brothers Band
9. I Got To Let You Know - Los Lobos with Robert Cray
10. Tumbling Dice - Vince Gill with Keith Urban & Albert Lee
11. Walkin' Blues - Taj Mahal with Keb Mo
12. Please Come Home - Gary Clark Jr.
13. Going Down - Jeff Beck with Beth Hart
14. I Shall Be Released - Eric Clapton with Robbie Robertson
15. Crossroads - Eric Clapton
16. High Time We Went - Finale with Ensemble

It wouldn't have been hard to fit most of these 16 tracks on a third disc, especially "Time Is Tight," "Born Under A Bad Sign," "Everyday I Have The Blues," "Whipping Post," "Tumbling Dice," "I Shall Be Released," "Crossroads," and the finale.

3.0 out of 5 stars What Happened to the Recording Quality? December 2, 2013
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
Is it just me, or did I receive just a very bad quality CD? I wonder. I have, over the years buying hundreds of audio CDs, I rarely got bad quality CD, but it has happened --- those very few bad CDs confirmed bad because when replaced with a second copy, the second copy was much better quality.

I have loved Eric Clapton as well as most of the other artists on this CD, and especially I love the blues that have been recorded here. Yes, it is a live recording. It has been my experience to often avoid live recordings, not because the performances of the artists are bad, but because often the recording quality is unacceptable, and I do not like the audience noise in the recordings. But some live performances have been worth the listen, and especially for those expected performances on this CD, I reasoned that I could get past the lesser recording quality and the audience noise because the included artists are all superb. BUT, the recording quality on most of the songs on this CD is awful, at least it is awful on the CD that I received. Very unacceptable levels of distortion on most of the songs and excessive background noise that is not audience noise made this CD NOT the enjoyable experience that I had hoped for.

Had the recording quality on the CD that I received been acceptable, this CD certainly would have received from me a BIG 5-STAR rating, the music should have been that good. But if I cannot enjoy what I am hearing due to poor recording quality, distortion, and excessive background noise, 3 Stars are the best that I can give. If I could return this CD for another copy, I would be grateful to Amazon, but since opened, I don't believe that is possible, I am just stuck with music that I will not listen to again.

5.0 out of 5 stars Five Star Crossroads November 23, 2013
By salem1
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
I'm going to start my review with saying flat out that Gary Clark, Jr. blows this album away with "When My Train Pulls In". It's extraordinary - the words, the guitar playing - the whole song amazes. I have heard him before, but this song just seems to bring out the best in his talent. Close second is "Gin House Blues". I've never heard of Andy Fairweather Low, but his agony-driven vocals here send this song into blues overload. It's the artists like John Mayer that surprises. His "Queen of California" and "Don't Let Me Down" with Keith Urban really does show his guitar skill and Keith's signature sound making this collaboration one of the highlights on the album. John's "Change It" with Doyle Bramhall II is also a standout. Another super song is "Great Big Old House" with The Robert Cray Band - another group I have never heard of - and "Next Door Neighbor Blues" - another brilliant performance by Gary Clark, Jr. Then there's Vince Gill, who I have followed from his career start in country music, showing his rocking side, which I love, in "I Ain't Living Long Like This" with Albert Lee. Taj Mahal with Keb' Mo' on "Diving Duck Blues" adds a humorous suggestive song to the mix and Jeff Beck's "Mina' Na Heireann" adds a soft sweetness to the album. Another song I absolutely love is "Congo Square" with Sonny Landreth and Derek Trucks and Gary Clark, Jr.'s drummer rocks.

Eric Clapton brings his name and talents to this album starting with the always tear-invoking "Tears In Heaven" and ending with his super hit "Sunshine Of Your Love". I love this album and would recommend it for anyone who loves blues, rock and guitar masters.

If you want a party CD, this is rock and roll-loud. It's not really what I expected, but then again, those are not acoustic guitars in the picture, are they?

I agree. Perhaps Eric is afraid to share the stage with Robin? :>)

I've purchased many CDs of Robin from the last decade, and it's absolutely amazing how fresh he always sounds and keeps writing new material all the time.

Only problem, is singing. Everyone has an opinion on his various... Read more
