Eric Clapton’s Crossroads Guitar Festival (2013) BluRay 1080p DTS-HD MA 5.1 Flac x264-beAst

Original title: Eric Clapton’s Crossroads Guitar Festival 2013
Year: 2013
Genre: Blues, Rock
Cast and Crew: Eric Clapton, The Allman Brothers Band, Buddy Guy, Gary Clark Jr., Jeff Beck, John Mayer, Keith Richards, Los Lobos, Vince Gill, and More
• LOS ANGELES – Last spring in New York City, Eric Clapton once again assembled an unparalleled lineup of the world’s most celebrated guitarists for the fourth incarnation of his legendary Crossroads Guitar Festival. While the previous three festivals were all hosted in sprawling outdoor stadiums, Clapton took the festivities indoors for the first time this year to “The World’s Most Famous Arena” Madison Square Garden. You can soon relive highlights from that epic, two-night display of guitar virtuosity with new video and audio collections coming this fall from Rhino.
• Held every three years since 2004, the Crossroads Guitar Festival has quickly become the ultimate guitar-concert event, where the world’s greatest players perform together to raise funds for the Crossroads Centre in Antigua. Clapton founded this treatment and education facility in 1998 to help people suffering from chemical dependency.
• This year’s shows featured performances by Clapton, the Allman Brothers Band, Blake Mills, Buddy Guy, Derek Trucks, Doyle Bramhall II, Gary Clark Jr., Jeff Beck, John Mayer, Keith Richards, Keith Urban, Los Lobos, Robert Cray, Sonny Landreth, Steve Cropper, Vince Gill, Warren Haynes and more.
• In addition to rousing performances of blues classics and renowned hit songs, many of the most memorable performances saw artists coming together for some stirring collaborations. Among the highlights were the surprise pairing of John Mayer and Keith Urban for the Beatles’ “Don’t Let Me Down,” Vince Gill and Clapton taking on “Lay Down Sally,” Keb Mo and Taj Mahal covering the Sleepy John Estes’ song, “Diving Duck Blues,” Gill performing “Tumbling Dice” with Urban and Albert Lee and members of the Allman Brothers – Gregg Allman, Warren Haynes and Derek Trucks – joined forces for a haunting acoustic cover of Neil Young’s “The Needle and the Damage Done.”
• As you would expect, Clapton features prominently throughout the show, including with his own band for “Tears In Heaven.” The legendary guitarist also tore through the Derek and the Dominos’ classic “Why Does Love Got to Be So Sad” with the Allman Brothers Band, revisiting the time in 2009 when he joined the band during their annual residency at the Beacon Theater in New York.
• The first Crossroads Guitar Festival was held in 2004 at the Cotton Bowl in Dallas and gathered together an unprecedented collection of guitar icons from blues, rock and contemporary music. The sold-out show was chronicled in a two-disc DVD that has since gone on to become one of the world’s top-selling music DVDs, achieving the 10x platinum mark in the United States alone. The other two DVD sets met similar acclaim. The 2007 collection was certified 6x platinum, while the set from 2010 was certified 4x platinum.

Eric Clapton – Crossroads Guitar Festival (2013) Bluray 1080p AVC DTS-HD MA 5.1-HDGeek

 

Eric Clapton’s Crossroads Music Festival 2013 is presented on Blu-ray courtesy of Rhino Music with an AVC encoded 1080p transfer in 1.78:1. This is one of those concert outings that has some off putting anomalies that aren’t directly tied to the transfer, but which are extremely annoying nonetheless. First, let’s dispense with the positives, which are quite numerous: this is a progressive presentation, and so problems like combing artifacts never become an issue, and the overall image is quite clear and well defined, with great fine detail in the many close-ups. Contrast and black levels are strong, and colors are very accurate looking and nicely saturated. But now for the bad, which frankly drove me a little nuts (not a very long drive, as regular readers of my reviews are probably already aware): whoever was operating the cameras for this multi-performance concert must have had an itchy trigger finger or simply had no idea how to pull focus. It is truly incredible how many shots in the hours of performances here feature blurry imagery, which suddenly sharpens for a moment, only to devolve again into completely out of focus imagery. What in heaven’s name is going on here? One or two of these moments would be (perhaps) understandable, but scores of them? Is this some kind of new “stylistic” thing, a la the ever popular “jiggly cam” or the manic editing style which frequently interrupts viewing of concerts (and which is thankfully not reproduced here)? For now, it’s an unanswered question, but my hunch is I’m not going to be the only one bothered by this peculiar phenomenon. Though it may not be “fair” in terms of a transfer based issue (which this is not), I’m deducting a half point from the score out of sheer pique.

Money and Cigarettes is an Eric Clapton album, released in 1983. It is his eighth studio album. The cover depicts Clapton, cigarette in hand, standing next to a melting Fender Stratocaster guitar. Clapton chose the name of the album “because, that’s all I saw myself having left,” after his (first) rehabilitation from alcoholism. The single “I’ve Got a Rock ‘n’ Roll Heart” became a hit in the U.S., peaking at #18, but was relatively unsuccessful in the UK, where it did not reach the Top 50. (Wiki)
