Okay, I know that Layla and Other Assorted Love Songs in the new remastered version isn’t coming out until April, but I figured I’d give you a heads-up early. Eric Clapton’s most famous song and plenty of extra goodies would be reason enough to buy this 40th Anniversary Deluxe Edition. AMAZON already has previews of all the songs on both disks so you can sample what’s going to be released April 26th. I can’t wait!
Here’s the promotional listing of what’s going to be included:
* Six exciting performances from what was to be Derek and the Dominos’ second album, all remixed by the original session engineer, Andy Johns. The highlight of the six tracks is “Got To Get Better In A Little While” – the group’s last recording – presented in this collection both as a mesmerizing jam version and as the ﬁrst-ever release of the fully produced studio version, finally completed by founding member Bobby Whitlock on keyboards and vocals.
* All four audio performances from Derek and the Domino’s sole, historic television appearance on The Johnny Cash Show, November 9, 1970 – including Clapton’s famous jam on “Matchbox Blues” with Cash and rockabilly legend Carl Perkins.
* The two tracks produced by Phil Spector in early summer 1970 that amounted to the first release by Derek and the Dominos: “Tell the Truth” and “Roll It Over,” the A- and B-side of a single that was quickly pulled from circulation by the group.
* The Layla session out-take “Mean Old World”: the legendary acoustic duet performed by Eric Clapton and Duane Allman.
