can't wait for this. looks like several new originals. Run Back to Your Side aka "Slide Song in A" in a great tune. played it with Winwood on a few dates. surprised he's not included Moon River and some of the other covers he's been doing.

ok so i am really digging into these song titles here's a little more info on a few tracks:

River Runs Deep
classic J.J. Cale tune from the Naturally album, one of my favorites

Can't Hold Out Much Longer
Little Walter tune different from I Can't Hold Out

Everything Will Be Alright
ok the only thing i can find is a Killers song. so its either an original or Everything Gonna Be Alright

That’s No Way To Get Along
completely didn't realize that this is the Stones song "Prodigal Son"

Plus, I'm sure we'll get some pretty cool collaborations, I'm sure we'll hear a Derek solo pop out in a couple of songs.

Is the song Hard Times another version of the Ray Charles song Clapton covered on Journeyman? Or, is it a completely different song?

looking forward to the album--the crossroads dvd,at least as i saw/heard it in the movies last week, was generally uninspiring & unoriginal and a step down from the last crossroads--perhaps the poor,tinny sound and dark,poor quality pic didn't help,but besides some nice moments of hearing Derek's sweet sounds and voodoo chile by EC/Winwood,not worth getting the dvd....the album has great potential to be excellent....

i assure you the DVD will be better than the theater version. It was advertised to include 4+ hours of footage. Plus the quality to me seemed to be a work in progress version and barely better than the webcast from 2007. Plus the theater that i saw the movie in only had the front speakers on. That may explain some of the sound.

Eric Clapton's 'Crossroads Guitar Festival 2010' Coming To Blu-Ray And DVD



Often credited as being one of the all-time greatest guitarists and known amongst his peers as one of the all-time greatest collaborators, the ultimate Clapton collaboration took place earlier this year at the Crossroads Guitar Festival 2010 on June 26 at Chicago’s Toyota Park. For one day only, Clapton gathered the past, present and future of guitar music onto one stage for an all-day musical event in front of a crowd of over 27,000. The third Crossroads Guitar Festival was a sold out, 11-hour event with all profits benefiting The Crossroads Centre in Antigua, a treatment and education facility founded by Clapton for chemically dependent persons.

Rhino Entertainment captured every note from that blistering summer day in Chicago and will release over four hours in High Definition on Crossroads Guitar Festival 2010. Fans around the world will have a chance to experience many of the festival’s greatest moments including performances by Clapton, ZZ Top, Steve Winwood, B.B. King, Jeff Beck, Vince Gill, Sheryl Crow, Buddy Guy, John Mayer, Bill Murray and many others as well as behind-the-scenes footage and candid interviews with the performers. Crossroads Guitar Festival 2010 will be available November 9 at retail outlets, including www.rhino.com, for a suggested list price of $34.98 (2-Disc Blu-Ray) and $29.98 (2-Disc DVD). This marks the first ever release of a Crossroads Guitar Festival on Blu-Ray.

“The Crossroads Festival is the realization of a dream for me, to gather a group of amazingly talented musicians to perform on one stage,” said Clapton. “The Crossroads performers are all musicians I admire and respect.”

It was a wonderful day of music and I look forward to experiencing some of it again when the Blu-ray hits shelves.

I agree that the theater preview was not great quality. The sound was a bit off at my theater and the video looked dark in some places and washed-out in others with very rough camerawork. I'm sure the disc release will be up to the same standards as the previous DVD.

Uh, even Citizen Cope?

Which reminds me of an article I read back in the early '80s with Clapton relating an anecdote about he & Keith Richards debating the merits of Prince. Up to then I wasn't much of a Prince fan. I started listening to Prince with the question: "What's Clapton see in this guy?" in my head...I found I appreciated Prince's work a bit more...and has since grown on me to where I now like Prince's work quite a lot.

Guess I'll have to give Citizen Cope another listen....but, he didn't leave such a good "first impression".

Glad that Cope isn't on that list, and Derek is

Judging by that list, and the fact it seems like the core band is just guitar, drums, keyboards and bass, I think that we're in for a great album, it certainly will be different than what we're used to from him in the studio.

Very old song. I've got a version on "Blues at Newport" by the Rev. Robert Wilkins.

Will it be better then Back Home? Or Pilgrim? Or Reptile? Looking at this info, it's gotta be better. Much better. But we'll see.

First review of the new album


quote:
After five decades and dozens of albums, we're getting, at last, simply "Clapton" (***, Reprise). Due Sept. 27, this latest record from Eric Clapton tacks another chapter onto his lifelong fascination with Americana. And like his 2006 collaboration with JJ Cale, it skips the adult-contemporary blahs that have plagued so much of his latter-day work.

The music is as refreshingly unadorned as the title, a dizzyingly diverse batch of covers and originals played straight and assured by Clapton and his band. It's precisely the sort of effort you might expect at this point from the 65-year-old stalwart, mingling spare bluesy fare -- like the dark opening cut "Travelin' Alone" -- and pop standards ("How Deep is the Ocean," "Autumn Leaves") with a cultivated sensibility.

Many of these songs have become familiar to fans of the guitarist's live show, and there's a pleasant exuberance in Clapton's summoning of left-field bluesmen such as Snooky Pryor ("Judgement Day") and Robert Wilkins ("That's No Way to Get Along"). If this is the Eric Clapton we're going to get from here out, we'll be waiting with ears wide open.
