A new concert album and video featuring highlights from Eric Clapton‘s 2019 Crossroads Guitar Festival, which took place September 20-21 at American Airlines Center in Dallas, will be released in a variety of formats on November 20.

The collection, titled Eric Clapton’s Crossroads Guitar Festival 2019, can be pre-ordered now, and will be available on three CDs, six vinyl LPs, two DVDs and two Blu-ray discs. It features nearly four hours’ worth of music.

The star-studded, two-day event featured performances by Clapton, Peter Frampton, Jeff Beck, Bonnie Raitt, Sheryl Crow, Tedeschi Trucks Band, Jimmie Vaughan, Los Lobos, Buddy Guy, John Mayer, Robert Cray, Gary Clark Jr., Vince Gill and many others.

Throughout the shows, various artists teamed up for special collaborations, including Clapton and Frampton joining forces for a version of The Beatles‘ “While My Guitar Gently Weeps,” and Raitt and Crow duetting on a rendition of Bob Dylan‘s “Everything Is Broken.”

The final featured Clapton joined by the ensemble of musicians to play covers of Prince‘s “Purple Rain” and Joe Cocker‘s “High Time We Went.”

A PBS special featuring footage from the 2019 Crossroads Guitar Festival also is scheduled to premiere in November.

The festival raises money for the Crossroads Centre in Antigua, the drug-dependency treatment facility that Clapton co-founded in 1998.
