  • Photographers: Gered Mankowitz; Michael Putland; Chuck Boyd; Richard Aaron; Steve Morley; David Redfern; Fin Costello.
  • Arranger: Eric Clapton.
  • Chock-full of blistering live performances drawn exclusively from the Tulsa-based band Clapton used during the "me" decade, CROSSROADS 2 is the antidote to his mostly laid-back, sleepy studio performances of the era.
  • With nearly 5 hours of music spread over 4 discs, CROSSROADS 2 never becomes redundant or too much of a good thing--a true testament to the power and fury of Clapton's excellent songs and fiery verve. Smoky vocals and truly inspired guitar workouts serve both his well-known hits and the sometimes obscure blues-songs he chooses. A 24-minute medley duet with Carlos Santana from '75 burns with passion and excitement. The album is bookended with 4 studio outtakes, with 1974's "Walkin' Down The Road" and "Cryin"--recorded four years later with the nucleus of Slowhand's next band--reflecting a more contemplative mood. A terrific set that entertains, surprises and delights, and an essential item that any Clapton connoiseur will treasure.
Professional Reviews
Rolling Stone (4/4/96, p.61) - 4 Stars - Excellent - "...For someone who has continually protested that he is not really a bluesman, merely an impassioned student, Clapton tears into the big open spaces in these tunes...like he's truly born to the cloth..."

Entertainment Weekly (4/12/96, p.67) - "...Slowhand's solos are laden with sculptured grit and raw finesse, the heart-quickening freneticism of his '60s work now replaced by refined intensity. Where Clapton's vocals are often whiskey-rough, his playing is pure poetry..." - Rating: B+
