Alongside this are a further 2LPs of bonus material some of which has not previously been released on vinyl. All the bonus material across all of LP3 and LP4 is mastered normally so is not half-speed mastered. You got a little extra there as the box was out in , so must have been a safe place for the careful owner to store them.
Probably wondering where they are! This is nonsense — particulary at the price. I own the 20th version 3x cd and 40th version 4x cd, 2x vinyl, 1 dvd, book, badge, plectrums, sticker, art print, tickets. Layla is one of my Top 5 all time albums.
That being said his excellent solo debut, released the same year get unjustly overlooked. Especially considering the nucleus of the Dominos played on that album, I would have loved to see a comprehensive box with live and studio material from both included.
New re-mixes or what? Have they missed a trick here? There are bits and pieces from these on the new set but surely more could have been included. Especially on something like a 50th Anniversary box. Or maybe at least the first to gain any popular notoriety and traction? Bah humbug! I have an amazingly good sounding bluray pure audio of this album. But there is no 5. Missed out on the 40th edition so will more than likely spring for the 2CD set. Wish it was beefier, though, as I think this album warrants it.
Unfortunately that surround sound was in lossy Dolby digital. The SACD surround version was, in my view, far superior — and a far better mix than the original LP that is quite muddy. The various vinyl reissues including this one here are digitally sourced and no better than the high res files that you can buy online. According to an email I received today from uDiscover Store it says the 4 vinyl box set is an exclusive to them and Sound of Vinyl same company but I see from above it is available from Amazon too.

Verified Purchase. A classic album ruined by engineers who clearly don't understand remastering beyond making things louder. Further proof that in music's digital age the term "remastered" doesn't always equate to "improved". Clearly mastered for playback on mobile devices, this mix is boomy, peaky, lacks most low-end, mid-range guitar action is muffled, and highs are thin and tinny.
As with too many digital "remasterings" of analog material, it's clearly been remixed solely for improved playback on inferior devices, rather than superior playback on audiophile Hi-Fi systems or even studio headphones. If you care at all about quality, skip this release. I love this album and couldn't wait to get a new gram version. Unfortunately, Amazon appears to have gotten a poorly made batch from Polydor.
I was very disappointed in the sound quality and bad mix on the first copy I tried. I used Amazon's easy replacement policy to order a second hoping the bad quality of the first was a fluke.
