Eric Clapton, Gary Clark. Jr., Jeff Beck and other guitar icons will appear on the Crossroads Festival’s first-ever vinyl set, a six-LP live release.

Performances from Sheryl Crow, John Mayer, Carlos Santana, James Taylor, Steve Winwood, ZZ Top, Joe Walsh, Keith Urban, Susan Tedeschi with the Derek Trucks Band, Willie Nelson and Buddy Guy also appear on the package, Crossroads Revisited: Selections from the Crossroads Guitar Festival, out December 6th via Rhino.

Clapton’s selections include “Cocaine,” “Crossroads,” “Layla,” “Have You Ever Loved a Woman,” a cover of George Harrison’s “Isn’t It a Pity” and various collaborations with Steve Winwood (Blind Faith’s “Presence of the Lord,” Traffic’s “Dear Mr. Fantasy”), Carlos Santana (“Drums of Passion”) and J.J. Cale (“After Midnight”).

The 40-track album — which includes tracks from Crossroads events in 2004, 2007, 2010 and 2013 — also features Booker T., Steve Cropper, Warren Haynes, Los Lobos, Blake Mills, Jonny Lang, Blake Mills, Hubert Sumlin, Jimmie Vaughan, Jerry Douglas, Doyle Bramhall II, Sonny Landreth, the Robert Cray Band, Albert Lee, Keb’ Mo’, James Burton, Earl Klugh, David Hidalgo, Cesar Rosas, Chris Stainton and Matt “Guitar” Murphy.

The Crossroads Guitar Festival raises money for Clapton’s Crossroads Centre, which aids people battling chemical dependencies. The sixth installment, the first in six years, took place in September.

Clapton, who has contemplated retirement in recent years, recently announced a European run for summer 2020. In April, during a show in Tokyo, he surprised fans with an electric version of “Layla.”
