"Crossroads Blues," Cream
Where has this been all my life? Thank you, No Depression. Ginger Baker, Jack Bruce, and Eric Clapton performing the Robert Johnson song during their farewell concert on Nov. 26, 1968 at the Royal Albert Hall. Odd camera work; you won't get a good look at Clapton's fretboard until 3:04. Oh, to be at the crossroads in June! Here's the spot, in Clarksdale, Mississippi.
