adnan Posted September 20, 2006 Share Posted September 20, 2006 I thoroughly despise the guitar and vocals on the 2:41 version. It just sounds odd, and wrong. The next track on the CD (2:32 version) has much better guitar, a more enjoyable riff, and it's really very well structured, there are some lyrical changes which make it more focused. All around, out of the two Robert Johnson tracks, I prefer the 2:32 version, because it's a classic blues song, I love everything about it. But, "Crossroads" by Cream has to be the winner for me. The guitar playing from Clapton, and the bass from Jack are sublime. It's a truly iconic recording to me, unlike the 2:32 version from Johnson. It's a shame Bruce didn't sing it, I would've prefered his vocal to Clapton's. Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
