Review of Crossroads: Eric Clapton Guitar Festival DVD (Warner Music Canada)

Crossroads

“Clapton is God” or so some graffiti once proclaimed. And while I am not going to argue the point, many of his guests on the latest edition of his Crossroads Guitar Festival certainly can give Clapton a run for his money. Vince Gill does a wonderful job lending a hand on Lay Down Sally while Gary Clark Jr. positively slays during his performance of When My Train Pulls In and Please Come Home. Some of the other guests included here are The Allman Brothers Band, Doyle Bramhall II and Keb Mo. All in all, this two-DVD set is sure to make the blues fan on your Christmas list a very happy camper.
