Nowadays we all know that "Derek is Eric", but back in late 1970 this wasn't as obvious to many, and so the double-album into which Eric Clapton and his new band had invested so much emotion and effort, which he released pseudonymously under the name Derek and The Dominos, failed to achieve the level of commercial success it deserved; Clapton's wish to refrain from the spotlight had proved detrimental. Accompanied by keyboardist Bobby Whitlock, bass player Carl Radle, drummer Jim Gordon and guest star Duane Allman on slide guitar, Clapton and the Dominos nonetheless recorded a spectacular set ranging from ferocious blues ('Have You Ever Loved A Woman'), joyous Southern boogie ('Keep On Growing', 'Anyday'), lovelorn romanticism ('I Looked Away', I Am Yours' and, of course, 'Layla'), and some sublime reinterpretations (a sky-scraping cover of Jimi Hendrix's 'Little Wing').

This Deluxe Edition of LAYLA AND OTHER ASSORTED LOVE SONGS is a stunning repackaging of one of the finest moments in Eric Clapton's career. The new remaster, cut from the original British Polydor Records master tapes, sounds great, and serves to bring out the album's atmospheric live-in-the-studio vibe to even stronger effect; it's some improvement upon the previous 1997 issue. Meanwhile the extras on disc two conclusively wrap up the brief history of Derek and The Dominos.

"Have you ever loved a woman, so much you're tremblin' in pain, and all the time you know she bears another man's name - but you just love that woman so much, it's a shame and a sin ... and all the time you know she belongs to your very best friend!" If you'd never heard this album's title track, you would swear that "Have You Ever Loved A Woman" was the song that Eric Clapton wrote for Pattie Boyd Harrison; not only do the lyrics of Billy Myles' blues classic fit so perfectly, Clapton positively pours his heart out as he sings them, and his guitar screams with the pain of unrequited love. And even before get to this song, Clapton's own "Bell Bottom Blues" lays bare similar feelings and recalls his infamous heroin ultimatum to Pattie ("Either you come with me or I'll take that"): "Do you wanna see me crawl across the floor to you? Do you wanna hear me beg you to take me back?" And as the man pleads with her, so does his guitar, and you wonder what woman could possibly have resisted such an impassioned plea.
Until of course, almost at the end of the album, you hear "Layla," this record's motto more than a simple title track and, in many respects, its reason for being. Torn by personal insecurity, Clapton used the cover and seeming anonymity of yet another band, and the parable of a medieval Persian love story ("Layla and Majnun" - reportedly, "majnun," in Persian, means madman) to put into music what he couldn’t put into words alone. From its opening riff to its last note the song is pure blues, Clapton audibly on the brink of the madness he sings about, and his guitar wailing, moaning and crying out all that was in his heart: "Layla ... you got me on my knees - Layla ... I'm begging darling, please - Layla ... won't you ease my worry now?

disappointed with the super deluxe edition that I've returned to Amazon two times(you can read my review), I decided to buy this simple deluxe edition, I must say that in this case, my opinion changed completely, because the packaging is perfect and cd have no scratches or traces of glue;
about the music I must say that the first CD was remastered perfectly, the CD sounds much better than the other released in the mid-90s (and not comparable to the twentieth anniversary edition, as in that case the record was remixed);
the second CD, contains an acoustic version of "Mean Old World" played only by eric duane, the single "roll it over/tell the thruth", 4 songs played at the Johnny Cash show (I particularly liked matchbox) and the 5 songs that should have been finish on the second album never completed (actually had already appeared on the Crossroads box set but in this edition they really sound better)

the only thing I regret is having to give up the DVD that contained the 5.1 mix since it was included only in the super deluxe edition, but I'm sure that UNIVERSAL sooner or later will find a way to sell it individually

highly recommended (this issue!);-)

I've long been a Derek & The Dominoes fan and I was really looking forward to receiving the Super Deluxe Edition. I figured I would regret it if I didn't buy it even though it was a very expensive product to purchase.

Like other reviewers here my set had a number of issues with it which I put down to the quality assurance of the package provider, Universal I believe.

The 2 Vinyl albums were scuffed and had finger prints on them.

3 of the 4 CD's had scratch marks. The 5.1 surround sound DVD had glue on it and was unplayable. The sticker on the front of the box had not been placed very well in that it had air bubbles and creases on it. The housing for the five discs was 5 tight narrow slots cut into 2 pieces of card where clearly the glue holding them had not fully dried and as a reviewer stated, taking the discs out and reinserting them will scratch them and they were scratched as I said.

I thought about returning it and asking for a replacement, but then noticed that one of the Amazon reviewers had done that already and the replacement received was just as bad.

So I am seeking a full refund and will not repurchase it unless I can obtain some kind of assurance in due course that the quality control issues have been addressed. I will also be writing to Universal to express my displeasure about the quality control with this package.
