Crossroads 2: Live in the Seventies is the seventh live album and a box set by Eric Clapton, released in 1996. Unlike the first Crossroads box set that encompasses more than three decades of Clapton's work, Crossroads 2 is a chronicle of Clapton's live shows between 1974 through 1978. Much of the focus is on longer renditions of electric blues.
