So [link=http://www.whereseric.com/eric-clapton-news/303-derek-and-dominos%E2%80%99-layla-and-other-assorted-love-songs-turns-40]the 40th anniversary edition of Layla and Other Assorted Love Songs[/link] is coming out in March.
[blockquote]THE DELUXE EDITION features:
? Six exciting performances from what was to be Derek and the Dominos? second album, all remixed by the original session engineer, Andy Johns. The highlight of the six tracks is ?Got To Get Better In A Little While? ? the group?s last recording ? presented in this collection both as a mesmerizing jam version and as the ?rst-ever release of the fully produced studio version, finally completed by founding member Bobby Whitlock on keyboards and vocals.
? All four audio performances from Derek and the Domino?s sole, historic television appearance on The Johnny Cash Show, November 9, 1970 ? including Clapton?s famous jam on ?Matchbox Blues? with Cash and rockabilly legend Carl Perkins.
? The two tracks produced by Phil Spector in early summer 1970 that amounted to the first release by Derek and the Dominos: ?Tell the Truth? and ?Roll It Over,? the A- and B-side of a single that was quickly pulled from circulation by the group and has long been unavailable.
? High-fidelity, 180-gram reproduction of the original vinyl double album, remastered directly from the original master session reels, featuring slightly alternate mixes of some songs.
The SUPER DELUXE EDITION additionally includes:
? Newly remastered and expanded 2-CD set of Derek and the Dominos: In Concert, recorded at the Fillmore East and remastered from the original master tapes.
? DTS 5.1 and Dolby Surround 5.1 versions of Layla and Other Assorted Love Songs, mixed by legendary engineer Elliot Scheiner.
? A hardcover book, artfully designed with rare and never-seen photographs, and featuring four meticulously researched essays by noted music historian and author Ashley Kahn fashioned from new interviews with Bobby Whitlock, Allman Brothers drummer Butch Trucks, engineer Andy Johns, producer Albhy Galuten, guitarist Derek Trucks; plus historic interviews with Eric Clapton, Duane Allman, and producer Tom Dowd.
? Facsimiles of Derek and the Dominos concert tickets and various promotional items, including the famous ?Derek is Eric? button created to assure fans of the identity of the group?s lead singer and guitarist.
? 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.[/blockquote]
Dammit, I'm getting the Super Deluxe edition.
Oh man, I bought the 20th anniversary edition set when it came out.
I have the 20th Anniversary set as well, although I didn't buy it upon release.
RIP Gary Moore.
So many great songs. Still Got The Blues came out right when I was discovering the blues - Jeff Healey, Clapton, Stevie Ray Vaughan, Gary Moore (and the original bluesmen those artists led me to) - the soundtrack of my teenage years.
Gary Moore died? Damn.
Guess its time to finally buy a copy of Thin Lizzy's Black Rose.

Jeez, I'm all for not being an entitled rich bastard but I probably would have someone do my laundry for me rather than spend time in a laundromat.
Eric Clapton, god my @$$...

Saw him tonight at the Gibson. Small venue so I was pretty close to the stage. Same set that he's been doing on the tour, with most of his sit-down stuff using the ES-335 (never thought I'd get to see him playing a Gibson). Los Lobos was also pretty good, except I don't really know most of their songs. Great (loud) music and I had an awesome time, except for two things:
1. Getting pot smoke blown in my face a few times. I don't care if the person's high, I just don't want to breathe it. And she was also consuming too much beer for her lightweight self and fidgeting and bumping into me a lot.
2. Despite the fact that I could often seen puffs of smoke coming from a bunch of other places in the audience, the security guy decides to bust me for having a camera. Actually, I think he was helping the aforementioned drunk stoner find her seat. I wonder why. She reeked of pot so he must've known what she did, but couldn't or didn't want to do anything for whatever reason. And he "had to" bust me when he was right there. The theater has a posted policy against "professional" cameras, so I thought with all the drunks and pot-smoking people with obviously amateur-grade cameras would be fine. Guess not. Why is it so offensive to do something that people no longer make money off of (thanks YouTube and camera phones)? Oh well, I managed to get nearly EIGHTY MINUTES before he decided to bust me.
Yay you. Again. So, you kept your camera, just weren't allowed to film any more?
In NZ news, our Blues & Roots festival at Easter with BB King headlining was cancelled today... because of an Earthquake a month ago 1000km away. What?
Looks like seeing BB King support U2 in 1987 will be my only time seeing him.
Edit: They've updated the article; "Echave said he was trying to put on a smaller show at Auckland venue The Civic in place of Grassroots, most likely featuring BB King and Ruthie Foster."
Again? Sarcasm? If you mean that I've seen 3 Clapton concerts in about 4 years, I'm glad to live in L.A. And yes, I was allowed to keep the camera (they were just going to confiscate it until the end of the show) because I started to launch into a rant and I guess the guy didn't want to hear it. Finally, a benefit to being argumentative.
Jeez, B.B. King still travels that far? Most people that old say, "I'm not going on a plane across the Pacific."
