This November sees the release of 50th Anniversary edition of Layla and Other Assorted Love Songs as a 4LP vinyl box set and a separate 2CD edition. In celebration of this milestone, the original album tracks have been given the 'Half-Speed Mastered' treatment by Miles Showell at Abbey Road Studios.

Alongside the original album on LP1 and LP2, there are two more LPs of bonus material, some of which has not previously been released on vinyl. The bonus material is not half-speed mastered. The vinyl box set also includes a 12×12 book of sleeve notes taken from the 40th-Anniversary Edition and a certificate of authentication.

In 1970, following the break-up of Blind Faith and his departure from Delaney & Bonnie, Eric Clapton formed Derek & The Dominos in the spring of that year. In addition to EC on guitar and vocals, the group comprised three other former members of Delaney & Bonnie & Friends: Bobby Whitlock on keyboards, Carl Radle on bass and Jim Gordon on drums. Derek & The Dominos played their first concert at London's Lyceum Ballroom on June 14, 1970 as part of a U.K. summer tour. During late August to early October they recorded Layla and Other Assorted Love Songs, with the Allman Brothers' guitarist Duane Allman sitting in, before returning to a tour of the U.K. and the U.S. until the end of the year. Shortly thereafter, the group disbanded but their time together offered up one of the rock canon's most enduring albums of all time.
