5.0 out of 5 stars The best concert DVD of the year!, November 24, 2007
This review is from: Crossroads: Eric Clapton Guitar Festival 2007 (DVD)
Clapton's universal appeal and longtime assocations with other stellar guitarists once again pays off with a spectacular lineup on this DVD--a real who's who of guitarists. A lot of these guys are getting up there in age (as well as Clapton himself) and it's great to have such a gathering of legends documented on video. Sadly, stellar guitarists do not have the mainstream appeal they once enjoyed (just take a look at the crap on the current Top 40), so this high-profile video gives these artists, some of them somewhat obscure, the attention they deserve. Sonny Landreth, for one--AMAZING slide guitarist. Right up there with Derek Trucks (also prominently featured) even though his style is completely different. The only sore thumb in this lineup is Sheryl Crow--what was she doing there?? All the other featured acts were those with guitar prowess. Eric can invite anyone he wants, of course, but obviously she doesn't fit that category. Willie Nelson's "duet" with Crow was awful. If anything was going to be left on the "cutting room floor," as another reviewer noted about one of Jeff Beck's numbers, the Crow-Nelson duet should have been it. I too demand a re-release!

Overall though, a great DVD and highly recommended for all guitar buffs. The 4 hours will fly by! And get the Best Buy/Target version with the bonus extra DVD. It's only two more songs, but they're good ones.

Maybe Eric figured he needed to "sex" the show up a bit? Or maybe he felt guilty for any past misdeeds regarding Sheryl? Oh well, nothing in life is perfect, but Sheryl is still pretty nice to look at.

Good point, but I think Susan Tedeschi, who IS a fine guitarist, is hotter than Sheryl, so for me Susan's presence fulfilled that sort of fix for me! :)
