Derek & the Dominos in Concert

This is the first Derek and the Dominos album I owned and to this day I think this is by far bet­ter than the stu­dio album, “Layla and Other Assorted Love Songs.” Clapton is great live; he was back then and he still is to this day. The gui­tar work through­out is good and the band is one of the best all-time. This album has come out on MP3 down­load­able and CD. The CD is very expensive. 

“Live At The Fillmore Expanded Edition” was released in 1994 in a two-CD pack­age and con­tains songs from both show dates, October 23 and 24,1970. There’s a dif­fer­ent ver­sion of “Got to Get Better in a Little While,” which is a bit longer and more sat­is­fy­ing to me. If you don’t have either of these CD pack­ages you are real­ly miss­ing out on some great live music.
