Derek and The Dominos - Layla and Other Assorted Songs (Universal) Deluxe Edition
A staple in Eric Clapton's catalog. No one can argue the greatness achieved here. Eric Clapton and Duane Allman shine brightly. The title track, of course an undisputed artistic masterpiece, and a great commercial success. Not to mention one of the most memorable tracks ever written, and that incredible transition from rage to absolute calmness. Incredible collection of tracks all in one place, a very creative period for anyone involved in making this record.
This edition adds another disc into the mix. The second disc includes 13 bonus tracks. There are two tracks produced by Phil Spector, a bunch of live songs the band performed on Johnny Cash show back in 1970. But the best part comes all the way at the end, six tracks from the sessions for the Dominos' second album. The album of course never materialized, but it's visible from the tracks where the band was heading musically.
It's a great set of timeless music, done in a very tasty way. The album is a living document what an inspired musicians can achieve. Magic all the way through.
