A 40th Anniversary Super Deluxe Collector's Edition Of This Legendary Album! Includes two 180-gram LPs, four CDs and one audio-only 5.1 Surround Sound DVD! Limited quantities available in the U.S.

Easily one of the most famous, successful and must-have records of all-time, this 1971 release really needs very little introduction. If you just moved to this planet, you might like to know that "Derek" of Derek and the Dominos was Eric Clapton. This was the short-lived band that he formed with hopes of laying low and escaping the unrelenting attention that plagued his previous projects in Cream and Blind Faith. His cover was blown rather quickly. And of all the incredible records Clapton's put out through his incredible career, this one would probably get the most votes for his best. His supporting cast includes none other than Duane Allman, who lends his unmistakable slide guitar to the title track, which incidentally is an ode to George Harrison's wife Patti, whom Clapton had fallen desperately in love with. Also onboard are several sidemen from Delaney & Bonnie. There's simply no disputing this record's greatness - front to back

All four audio performances from Derek and the Domino's sole, historic television appearance on The Johnny Cash Show on November 9, 1970 - including Clapton's famous jam on "Matchbox Blues" with Cash and rockabilly legend Carl Perkins are found on the 2nd CD in this set. Also included are 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. The Layla session out-take "Mean Old World": the legendary acoustic duet performed by Eric Clapton and Duane Allman are also found here.

In addition to the 2 CDs mentioned above, this Super Deluxe Edition box set includes newly remastered and expanded 2-CD set of Derek and the Dominos: In Concert, recorded at the Fillmore East on October 23 & 24, 1970 and remastered from the original master tapes. Also on 2-CD are 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 first-ever release of the fully produced studio version, finally completed by founding member Bobby Whitlock on keyboards and vocals.
