First, in my opinion, this remixed version of Layla is the very best version of the original album. Those involved in making this box set did the album (and we listeners) a great favor in using the original tapes and making each artist clear and crisp in their performances. Considering that this has some of Duane Allman's last work, it is a treasure to hear. As to the album itself, 'Layla And Other Assorted Love Songs' is perhaps the greatest album ever made about romantic longing. It is one that ought to be owned, played, and treasured as the beautiful audio artwork it is. As to the other two CD's in this special box set, the "Jams" are exactly that, five jams with Eric Clapton and the band, the last two with Clapton and Allman which make these cuts priceless for both Clapton and Allman Brothers fans. The last CD has outtakes and variant version of a few of the album songs which probably wont be played as often as the other two, but there are some truly tasty cuts here and a treat to anyone who is a great fan of the original album. My heartfelt gratitude to those who created this box gem.
