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.Read more ›
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?Read more ›
Looking at the Amazon return policy I established that I couldn't just exchange it for a new one but would be eligible to get a refund. So as not to disappoint my partner I decided to order another one as I felt sure this must have been a rogue box set.
Amazon promptly delivered (Friday 25th) and unfortunately this box seemed to suffer from many of the same faults. DVD stuck firmly in the cardboard slot and when eventually extracted had a glue like substance marking it. Yet again some of the CDs were scratched; it did however contain three facsimile tickets and one "Derek Is Eric" badge" (although the box does state badges). I am pleased to see that Amazon have suspended sales of this item as it appears to be the luck of the draw what is contained inside of it. The only consistent seems to be that the 40th Anniversary hardback book in both boxes was in good condition.Read more ›
