Editorial Reviews

All Music Guide - Stephen Thomas Erlewine
A four-disc box set spanning Eric Clapton's entire career -- running from the Yardbirds to his '80s solo recordings -- Crossroads not only revitalized Clapton's commercial standing, but it established the rock & roll multi-disc box set retrospective as a commercially viable proposition. Bob Dylan's Biograph was successful two years before the release of Crossroads, but Clapton's set was a bona fide blockbuster. And it's easy to see why. Crossroads manages to sum up Clapton's career succinctly and thoroughly, touching upon all of his hits and adding a bevy of first-rate unreleased material most notably selections from the scrapped second Derek and the Dominos...

Bob Dylan's Biograph was successful two years before the release of Crossroads, but Clapton's set was a bona fide blockbuster. And it's easy to see why. Crossroads manages to sum up Clapton's career succinctly and thoroughly, touching upon all of his hits and adding a bevy of first-rate unreleased material most notably selections from the scrapped second Derek and the Dominos album. Although not all of his greatest performances are included on the set -- none of his work as a session musician or guest artist is included, for instance -- every truly essential item he recorded is present on these four discs. No other Clapton album accurately explains why the guitarist was so influential, or demonstrates exactly what he accomplished.

    2 Albums = Clapton's Best

    This truly is an all encompassing collection and is a fine set of discs for both loyal fans and newcomers to Claptons music. He may not be God, but he certainly has made a significant contribution to the world of music. I would suggest that if you could find an old, 2 record set called Eric Clapton At His Best, you'd find an excellent instrumental version "Jam" of his Tell The Truth. That song is worth the price of admission. I have not seen that one on CD. Personally, I'd put the original version of Layla at the top of my list of all my all time favorite songs. Plus, the acoustic version of Layla he did on Unplugged is probably the best alternative to the original. One other suggestion: if you'd like to hear him do an outstanding jam, get a copy of Steven Stills' first solo album and listen to Go Back Home. I also wish Duane Allman was here to play another gig with Eric.
