RhinoIn 2016, a three-CD set featuring highlights from the four star-studded editions of Eric Clapton‘s Crossroads Guitar Festival held from 2004 through 2013 was released. Now, a six-LP vinyl version of the live compilation, Crossroads Revisited: Selections from the Crossroads Guitar Festivals, is slated to hit stores December 6.

Held in various U.S. cities in 2004, 2007, 2010 and 2013, the Crossroads Guitar Festival featured Clapton joined by an impressive lineup of respected musicians from the worlds of rock, blues and country. The events showcased a variety of special onstage collaborations, many of which appear on Crossroads Revisited.

Among the many stars appearing on the 41-track anthology are Carlos Santana, ZZ Top, B.B. King, Jeff Beck, Ronnie Wood, Joe Walsh, James Taylor, Steve Winwood, Buddy Guy, Willie Nelson, Steve Cropper, Booker T. Jones, J.J. Cale, John Mayer, Warren Haynes, Derek Trucks, Los Lobos, Sheryl Crow, Vince Gill and Jimmie Vaughan.

Highlights from the compilation include Clapton playing solo versions of his classic “Layla” and George Harrison‘s “Isn’t It a Pity,” as well as Slowhand teaming up with Santana on a rendition of “Drums of Passion,” with Cale on a version of “After Midnight” and with Winwood for covers of Traffic‘s “Dear Mr. Fantasy” and Blind Faith‘s “Presence of the Lord.”

Crossroads Revisited also features Walsh and Taylor performing James’ song “Steam Roller” together, and Clapton collaborating with King, Vaughan and The Robert Cray Band to play “Everyday I Get the Blues.”

In all, Crossroads Revisited features almost four hours’ worth of performances.
