In the mail I today was "Eric Clapton-An Anthology",a six disc boot compilation spanning 1962-late 70s.

Disc one,song one,is Layla as it was meant to be heard-NOT the accidently speeded up version that ended up getting released.This comes out slower,more bluesy,more powerful.You can hear that Duane starts playing on the pickup about halfway through the last verse-plus a much longer solo before the piano comes in,and the coda is slower too.

THIS is the version that should have been releaed.MUCH better,IMO.

WB.

If you want to try something interesting, take the studio version of Ramblin' Man and play it on a turntable or cassette deck that's equipped with variable speed. If you have a reference point (a properly tuned guitar or a piano), slow it down to the original key of G, instead of the almost-G# key that it was released in. Sounds like a completely different song. Funny how that works...

Yeah... I don't have a turntable on hand, but it's amazing how much tinnier that is because of the speed. Little Martha is actually slightly sped up on Eat a Peach, too. Not much, but a little.

Ron,
The tape got sped up by a peice of old recording equipment they were using,by accident.This verson is an "alternate" take that wasn't recorded on that equipment.

I'm sure someone with a vari-speed turntable or cassette player could take it and slow it down to the speed Clapton plays it live at,which is the speed it was origanaly recorded at.This is unless,of course,you listen to the versions he did live in the 1970s,which were FASTER than the released recording,because George Terry liked to play it fast.The Rainbow Concert version and all 1980s-present live versions are at the normal speed.

WB.

Is this a traded set you're referring too? I'd sure like to hear that track . . . any chance of ripping it out and posting it where we could access it?

TopDroog,

Funny you guys should mention "Ramblin' Man". Anytime I make an ABB studio comp, I always use the speed-corrected "Ramblin' Man". It just sounds so much more NATURAL. Cool! I'll have to give "Layla" a listen, I heard it once a long time ago and I remember being knocked out by it. I agree, it is much better. Clapton's voice sounds so silly so sped up!
