 Famous Blues Covers

Celebrating Eric Clapton's birthday

Let's enjoy this terrific version of "Crossroads" by EC and band!

The most famous version of this song is the live one by Cream, from "Wheels of Fire".

 It's interesting to notice that Clapton developed an arrangement using lyrics from Crossroad Road Blues (also known as Crossroads) and Traveling Riverside Blues, both written by Robert Johnson, with an adaption of the guitar line from the latter.
