    If I'm remembering correctly, a reproduction of that came with the Layla CD box set in the early 1990s.

    It's amazing how many times that album has been remixed. The version of the song "Layla" that I have, which I believe is from the early 1990s remaster (unless it was updated automatically by the friendly robots at Amazon Prime Music) just jumps out of my Avantone Mix Cubes as if to say, "Hi, Mr. Clapton, I'll be putting lots of money into your pockets with this song!" I'll bet that mix was at least checked on a pair of the old Auratone "horrortone" speakers studios used to use to check car stereo mixes, if not largely mixed on them.

    It's amazing to me, the number of guitar parts, that are actually going on simultaneously in that song... If you listen close, you can hear them all... Any live performance, is a huge compromise to the original studio recording...

    I agree. And to my ear, the whole album is mixed that way. There's an incredible amount going on in the jam part of "Keep on Growing," and you can follow each instrument easily.

    Tom Dowd worked with The Manhattan Project in 1943.

    Some of you know what that was without a google search.

    Yeah, they were a bit twee and overrated at the time, but they could really lay down the harmony vocals.



    Seriously though, I would hope that everyone here knows what the Manhattan Project was without Googling!

    Yeah, and I'm pretty sure that song is just Clappo! About three lead tracks there?

    This thread at an Allman Brothers forum posits that it's the acoustic guitar. Perhaps box=isolation booth?

    Just in case anybody here hasn't seen it, "Tom Dowd & The Language of Music" is a great documentary. I watched it on cable, ended up buying the DVD years ago. Lent it out countless times. People that normally wouldn't be interested in such a documentary have really enjoyed it.................

    Iso booth was the first thing I thought of too, but I've never referred to that as the box.

    I've always written on the fader tape AGT for acoustic guitar, but maybe they did it different back then.

    ATTN : Driscoll,Ed.

    You know there were internet searches for Manhattan Project.

    And that isn't even why Dowd is relatively well known in our music nerd community! --- HA!

    Nukes and The Dominos .... zero cocaine on the atom bomb gig....mass quantities of cocaine during the Layla sessions.

    Life.

    It's hilarious.

    Of course there are Internet searches for the Manhattan Project. But I would think that our fellow core members here at the mighty LPF are rather more up to speed on these topics.

    Like most of the time,you're probably pretty damn close to the truth.

    shame what happened to everyone in that band

    Jim Gordon was an amazing drummer, he played with all the top acts. I see his name everywhere on the great LP's of the '70's

    Bobby Whitlock was messed up for years

    and RIP Carl Radle

    Clapton was the only one who made it out, relatively unscathed. Although not really, according to his biography!

    fantastic album. I especially like all the jam outtakes they released
