Derek & The Dominos get the deluxe treatment

Derek And The Dominos
Layla and Other Assorted Love Songs Hits 40!
Special 40th Anniversary Edition released March 29th


Eric Clapton’s Career-Defining Album Marks 40th Anniversary on 29th March 2011 Internationally With Deluxe Multi-format Edition Featuring New and Long-Unavailable Music, Never-Released Video and Never-Seen Photos, Plus Other Exciting Extras

Recorded in 1970 by Derek and the Dominos, the short-lived group led by Eric Clapton that also featured guitar legend Duane Allman and top American rhythm musicians of the day, Layla and Other Assorted Love Songs music offers a timeless blend of rock, electric blues and Southern gospel influences that has shaped generations of roots-oriented musicians. It achieved gold album status within months of its release in late 1970, was entered into the Grammy Hall of Fame in 2000, and today remains a ubiquitous entry in various “Top 100” and “All-Time Greatest” polls, and “Must Hear” bucket lists.

Highlights of the deluxe edition include new performances, Phil Spector produced tracks and high-fidelity, 180-gram reproduction of the original vinyl. The SUPER deluxe edition additionally includes 2-CD set of Derek and the Dominos: In Concert, recorded at the Fillmore East, a hardcover book containing never-seen photographs and a 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. A downloadable edition of both formats will be available on iTunes.
