Some 20 years after clapton entered the studio to lay down the tracks for what would become one of rocks greatest albums, the flame of inspiration still burns white-hot throughout the 14 songs contained here.Not a single note has dated in anyway and the clarity of the re-mastering only adds to the huge attraction of this superb box of goodies.
As a monument to a loved one, 'Layla' has few peers. From the depths of Claptons pain, informed by his passion for George Harrisons wife, 'Slowhand'fashioned a soundtrack to a love affair that contains everything great rock should have. The appropriate "Have you ever loved a woman" is sung by clapton with an intensity that is staggering. Big Bill Broonzy's blues standard "Key to the highway" is refashioned by Clapton and the mercurial Duane Allman into something akin to a slowly simmering cauldron. "tell the Truth" with it's funk-edged rythmns and power chords provide the perfect background for Clapton and Bobby Whitlock to trade impassioned vocal lines. There is not a weak track on these sessions and a chance to view the behind the scenes creative process is irresistable. Discs 2 and 3 contain a whole slew of jams, alternate outakes and masters that round off a superb job of re-issuing possibly the definitive 70's rock album. If you only know Eric from his recent pop-ish fare be warned......this is the real McCoy!

Format: Audio CD
I have a much older version of this that originally came out on audiotape(!)....just shows my age.
This is probably the gutsiest,rawest and most emotional album I have ever heard.Indeed,a masterpiece.The jams and outtakes are well worth it for an understanding of how this remarkable album was created.
I would not say that this is Clapton as never before or since,he has reached such heights at other times,but not so much on one album.He was fortunate to have such a great band and to be joined for most of the tracks by the great Duane Allman who duets with Eric and pushes him to his limits.
This is no ordinary album,it is stratospheric.
