  • I think you're slightly confused. Crossroads is a fantastic song, but the definitive version is by Robert Johnson [stormloader.com] (who wrote it).

    Of course the mark of a great song is that even Clapton finds it impossible to do a bad version :)

    • Testify Brother!

      It really is amazing how many modern "blues" comes from the 1920's, 1930's and 1940's, especially from the Delta Blues.

      I have few blues cd's but I do have the compilation of most of Robert Johnson's works, "King of the Delta Blues Singers". Simply excellent. Heck, I think I'll fire it up right now!
    • Well, I went and brought a Robert Johnson CD, and it's very good. Thanks for the tip.

      I still prefer the Cream version though... but many of the other tracks he originated are better than the covers I've heard before, as it were.

    • Not that it is better, but Phil Keaggy also does a mean version of it.
