Really looking forwrad to this one. However there is one notable missing: Jeff Beck. I could have sworn I saw an early release of the song list on Amazon including Jeff and Eric doing "Because we've ended as Lovers". But a review on Amazon says it is missing.

I can't believe that Eric would exclude that unless JB decided not to be a part of it, whih if it is the case is not helping him get much mainstream attention these days.

Somebody remind me again why Derek and/or Warren weren't invited? There are a lot of great players on that list, but James Taylor? John Mayer? For that matter, I'm not a big fan of Steve Vai or Eric Johnson.

I'm sure Derek and Warren could care less, but I really feel like they were slighted on this.

Psh... Was Eric invited to GABBA Fest? Then who cares.. he's living on an island of misfit toys. James Tayler.. John Mayer? Both suck in my opinion. Derek and Warren would show up and rip the hell out of both of them. Eric and Robert Randolph rocked this year though, what a great lineup.

I can say with confidence that if Eric would play the Cotton Club for what GABBA could afford to pay him, they would be happy to invite him!

I'd buy it just to see Honeyboy Edwards. I agree on John Mayer...he needs to be flipping burgers somewhere.UGHH!

Question: Are all songs played all the way through? Not really interested in short snippets of songs, ala the Isle of Wight DVD; giving complete plays to Jimi Hendrix and a few others but giving only a few seconds of Miles Davis and Taste.

Clapton sucks now. At the Cream reunion shows he's gonna be showed up by the bassist and the drummer and they don't even play the same instrument as him.

Warren and Derek probably were invited but they already had tight schedules. Warren had rehearsals with the Dead 'cuz they had a huge tour coming up and Derek had shows that were scheduled months before the Crossroads Festival was even a thought. I wish ARU played. I'd love to see Jimmy play with Steve Vai and make him look like poop.

I wouldn't be so sure that Warren and Derek were invited. I don't know if they're on Clapton's radar screen. I would like to see more Santana on there, he and Clapton play really well together, and he and John Mclaughlin would be amazing. I would love to get this DVD, but it's not tops on my list I don't think, and with a college student's budget, I can't even afford the top ones on my list. Oh well.

By the way, I heard John Mayer is a very good blues guitarist in his own right. Apparently he stopped playing the blues and opted for more poppy composition because, "The blues is just a competition to see who can play The Sky is Crying the best." And to some extent he is correct.

i ordered this dvd, it's waiting for me at home when i get there wednesday . with regards to john mayer, he is a really good blues player. i don't know if people have seen the chapelle's show with him, but he is just rockin' out and it's sick. and on one of his albums as like a "b-side" he plays the Wind Cries Mary and Lenny, and they are both great. also, one of my friends saw Buddy Guy, Double Trouble, and John Mayer at Irving Plaza last year. obviously they didn't announce john mayer until like the day of the show so it would sell out without his type of fans, but my friend was raving about how good mayer was. so i'm definitely looking forward to that track cuz it will probably be sick blues.

I bought this when it came out, and there is a bonus on the second disc, an unlisted performance of "Layla".

This dvd set is pretty great, but there are a few serious omissions- Jeff Beck as previously noted and Sonny Landreth, which is the main reason I bought this. But Clapton is smokin' hot and I think everyone does a pretty good job overall. Cool to see ZZ Top playing it very straight, just like when I saw them live this summer. And Booker T.and the MG'S backing up David Hidalgo and Joe Walsh is another highlight. But considering who is NOT shown, I suspect another volume may be coming out in the future. At least I hope so.

James Tayler.. John Mayer? Both suck in my opinion.

It's a good thing that Clapton's opinion is the one that matters then...

Anyone who thinks Taylor isn't a good guitarist knows nothing about acoustic guitar playing....just my opinion. My reverance for his abilities is shared by Warren...try telling him Taylor sucks.

JT's also a re-habilitated heroin addict...it makes sense that he would participate in such an event.

Clapton is still one of the all-time best, so this should be a great DVD to own. I loved his version of "Over The Rainbow"; it was a great encore choice, very Jerry Garcia in it's sweetness...

Yes- the songs are complete, and best of all- no talking over songs. Clapton talks about ZZ Top during one of their songs, but it is during a part when they are pausing for crowd reaction.

You suck! Clapton's cd rocked! and his tour with Robert Randolph, was the greatest.

Really?

I thought Cream was three guitars.

Or three drums.

Or basses.

Very observant.

Two VERY different styles.

And I doubt Jimmy could have passed an audition with FZ.

I like Jimmy, but he and Steve Vai are about as similar as Eddie Van Halen and Bonnie Raitt.

On a side note, I caught that show at Irving Plaza with Buddy Guy and John Mayer and I can tell you first hand, that kid is an amazing talent on guitar. His own music, however, is extremely cheesy, ideal for a young girl entering her teens. He also showed up for a couple of songs during a buddy guy show in New Jersey a couple of years ago and was exceptional then as well. I wouldn’t be completely shocked to see Warren invite him for a song or two at a mule show. He is certainly not guitar shy, and does excellent Hendrix and Stevie Ray renditions.
The kid didn’t do a bad job singing the blues either. It’s a shame his music is catered to a different crowd.
