This is the perfect box set for the casual Clapton fan or the serious without a live set. This is a great introduction to Clapton's to most of Clapton's mandatory songs (minus the Cream songs) that were recorded during the 70's at various venues. The sound quality is perfect with no deteriation from the recording at all.
There are some amazing rocking versions of songs. This set was taken during his drugged out depression phase when his solos rocked the hardest and his blues were the saddest.
Disc One- A great intro for the set with a fun Hand Jive. The highlight of this disc is the great "Cant Find My Way Home" with some of Clapton's cathiest lyrics to date.
Disc Two- The best disc of the set and one my single most favorite discs OF ALL TIME- worth the price of the set by itself. The 4 and a half min Layla is the best version of Layla ever hands down. Clapton tears through the riff with an amazing solo that shows of his best skills and his full range. Guaranteed to have you air jamming every time. The I Shot The Sheriff jams like no other. Clapton just gets in a groove with some finger pickin that cant be beat. Badge goes through its usual first half before Clapton just puts on an all out assault on the laws of rockin. The solo flies through many phases and has to be heard to be believed. Follow this up with a 24 min "Why Does Love Have To Be So Sad" with Santana. This is my all time favorite Clapton song and it needs to be heard multiple times before its complexity can be unraveled. The easiest way to describe it would be like a battle between Santana and Clapton where they are playing off of each other in alternate dueling commraderie. Fantastic!!
Disc three- the second best disc with multiple winners.

The great, career-spanning "Crossroads" compilation was a box set that appealed to both beginners and hardcore Clapton fanatics.
"Crossroads 2 - Live In The Seventies" mainly appeals to fanatics.

Spanning four discs and consisting almost entirely of live material (there are a handful of studio outtakes), this music will enthrall completists and archivists, who will find a wealth of compelling performances here. But they will also find a fair share of mediocre, uninspired tracks, and four versions of Robert Johnson's "Rambling On My Mind".
No-one needs four versions of "Rambling On My Mind" by the same artist on the same album. And two of them were recorded less than five months apart.

This is almost all slow blues and ballads, and a few more up-tempo songs, and a bit more musical variation, would have made "Crossroads 2" a significantly better set. The band is somewhat static, just a steady thump-thump going behing Clapton and his guitar, and the lenghty instrumental breaks can seem indulgent (or simply dull).

But that's not to say that there isn't anything worth your while here. The serious Clapton fan will certainly enjoy the first version of "Rambling On My Mind" (great slide guitar), as well as a powerful take on the classic "Layla", a nice, piano-driven "Worried Life Blues", the tough blues-rock of "Further On Up The Road", an excellent take on "Crossroads", the smouldering slow blues "Have You Ever Loved A Woman", and the numerous solos and fills, many of which are actually pretty great!
And there are a few surprises here as well, including Don Williams' "We're All The Way", a fine, acoustic "Cryin'" (a studio outtake), and the Four Tops-hit "Loving You Is Sweeter Than Ever".

Eric Clapton's first Crossroad's box set was a retrospective of his career in the studio. But as great as Mr. Clapton has been there, his true genius is derived from his work on the stage. His live work contains some of the most electrifying and influential guitar work in rock history. On Crossroads 2, you get four disks of amazing live performances from Slowhand from the 1970's. All of the classics are here and if you are a guitar aficionado, then Crossroads 2 is a must for your collection.

If I could, I'd give this collection an unlimited number of stars, because just when you think you've got EC figured out, he throws in the magical solos found here. This collection is definitely a must-have for any Clapton fan, and is highly recommended to any music fan with a little extra cash. He tears through old favorites such as Cocaine, Badge, and a slower version of Crossroads. Layla is one of my most-played tracks from this set, not only because it's a legendary song but because this is the only version I've ever seen without the piano solo. Clapton plays his most famous guitar riff throughout the five-plus minutes of the song, and it's truly mesmorizing.
The highlights remain as his powerful interpretations of blues standards, however. The first "Have You Ever Loved a Woman" on Disc One is the best version I've ever heard, and his slowed-down version of Derek and the Dominos' cover of Jimi Hendrix's "Little Wing" is truly celestial. Turn off the lights, close your eyes, put your headphones on, and listen to magic at work.
