The reissue -– which also includes a double-vinyl reproduction with slightly alternate remixes -- features six recordings for what was to be the band's second album, remixed by the original sessions engineer Andy John. The group's final recording –- 'Got to Get Better in a Little While' -- is also performed as a jam and a "fully produced studio version" completed by keyboardist Bobby Whitlock.
On top of that, there are four audio performances from the group's performance on 'The Johnny Cash' show from November 1970, including a rendition of 'Matchbox Blues' by Clapton, Cash and Carl Perkins. The Deluxe Edition also includes 'Tell the Truth' and 'Roll It Over,' two rare songs produced by Phil Spector that were released as a single but quickly pulled from circulation.
Meanwhile, the Super Deluxe Editon includes a remastered and expanded two-CD set of 'Derek and the Dominos: In Concert,' and a hardcover book with essays, rare and previously unreleased photos and new interviews. Other items include a concert ticket facsimile, pop-up 3-D artwork and an art print based on the Emile Theodore Frandsen de Schomberg's painting 'La Fille Au Bouquet,' which graced the album cover. A DVD featuring DTS 5.1 and Dolby Surround 5.1 versions of the album, mixed by engineer Elliot Scheiner, is also included.
Clapton -– whose latest album, 'Clapton,' was released last year -- tours Asia and Southeast Asia next month with stops in Singapore, Bangkok, Hong Kong and Seoul.
