Are you a fan of Derek And The Dominos? Because we have a spectacular prize for you!
The band’s iconic album Layla And Other Assorted Love Songs was recently reissued, and we’ve got a super deluxe edition to give away.
This has the following:
• 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 ?rst-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 Dominos’ 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 the early summer of 1970 that amounted to the first release by the band: 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 outtake Mean Old World - featuring the legendary acoustic duet performed by Eric Clapton and Duane Allman.
• Newly remastered and expanded two-CD set of Derek and the Dominos: In Concert, recorded at the Fillmore East and remastered from the original master tapes.
• Audio only DVD featuring DTS 5.1 and Dolby Surround 5.1 versions of the album, mixed by engineer Elliot Scheiner.
• High-fidelity, 180-gram reproduction of the original vinyl double album, remastered directly from the original UK album masters, featuring slightly alternate mixes of some songs.
• A hardcover book, artfully designed with rare and never-seen photographs, and featuring four meticulously researched 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, created to assure fans of the identity of the group’s lead singer and guitarist.
• 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 – which has achieved cultural significance in its own right.
