This ‘no label’ reissue of the Layla album looks very promising. I have their reel to reel tape reissue of Clapton’s debut solo album and the sound quality is phenomenal – it combines the warmth of analog with a startling clarity that the standard cd version lacks. The classic 1970 Layla record was never a particularly great technical capture – the sound is a bit thin and flat – so it will be interesting to hear if the original reel to reel tape opens up similar new sonic dimensions.
