I was so enamoured with the 2006 festival that I couldn't wait for the release of Crossroads 2007. After having watched it twice in the first 5 days I've owned it, here are my thoughts:
A couple of clunkers:
- Bill Murray's introduction and MC work, and Willie Nelson with Cheryl Crow come to mind.
Also, B.B. King could stay home next year and no one would miss him - "father time" has finally caught up to him
A couple of standouts:
- Winwood and Clapton together again revisiting five classics
- Jeff Beck was terrific, but his 22 year old female Aussie bassist steals the show
If 2006 was a "10" this one is a "8.5 - 9" for me, but it obviously will depend on your taste in music.
I was so excited when I saw Jeff Beck was indeed on the Crossroads 2007 video. He was absolutely electrifying and blew the audience away. The young bassist playing with him was brilliant too. That band needs to tour the USA soon. Derek Trucks slide work was the other highlight and the "Layla" songs benefitted greatly from his outstanding play.
