Eric ClaptonCrossroads Guitar Festival (Reprise)
Eric Clapton claims the guitar is adaptable to almost any type of music and then proves it. Imagine "Slowhand," Carlos Santana, ZZ Top, B.B. King, Joe Walsh, Jimmie Vaughan, Robert Randolph, Eric Johnson, Doyle Bramhall II, J.J. Cale, Bo Diddley, and too many more of the world's greatest guitarists sharing a stage and having too much fun. These are the highlights from the three-day Crossroads Guitar Festival held in Dallas earlier this year, boiled down to two DVDs and four hours. Loads of special features and some uncommonly fine moments.
