Derek & The Dominoes Classic To Be Reissued

Tuesday, February 22nd 2011 00:00

An expanded Layla is due out in March

Layla & Other Assorted Love Songs is released in a variety of formats, including a single disc edition, a deluxe two disc edition and a super deluxe 4CD/DVD/2LP version.

The deluxe edition features a remastered version of the album along with a bonus disc of rare and unreleased material. The super deluxe edition adds a double live In Concert CD (recorded at the Filmore East in 1970) and a DVD featuring the album in 5.1.

Here's what you get:

THE DELUXE EDITION features:

- Six 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 – included both as a 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 television appearance on The Johnny Cash Show in November 1970.

- 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 and has long been unavailable.

- High-fidelity, 180-gram reproduction of the original vinyl double album, remastered directly from the original master session reels, featuring slightly alternate mixes of some songs.

The SUPER DELUXE EDITION additionally includes:

- Newly remastered and expanded 2-CD set of Derek and the Dominos: In Concert, recorded at the Fillmore East and remastered from the original master tapes.

- DTS 5.1 and Dolby Surround 5.1 versions of Layla and Other Assorted Love Songs, mixed by legendary engineer Elliot Scheiner.

- A hardcover book featuring rare and never-seen photographs, and featuring four essays by noted music historian and author Ashley Kahn fashioned from new interviews with Bobby Whitlock, Allman Brothers drummer Butch Trucks, engineer Andy Johns, producer Albhy Galuten, guitarist Derek Trucks; plus historic interviews with Eric Clapton, Duane Allman, and producer Tom Dowd.

- Facsimiles of Derek and the Dominos concert tickets and various promotional items, including the famous "Derek is Eric" button.

- Pop-up 3-D artwork and a high quality Layla art print based on the oil painting that graced the original album cover – "La Fille Au Bouquet" by Emile Theodore Frandsen de Schomberg
