This anniversary collection also includes some singles, alternate versions and session outtakes. These include a previously-unreleased Alternate Mix of “Comin’ Home” by Delaney & Bonnie & Friends featuring Eric Clapton. Other tracks among these bonus tracks were previously released on the Deluxe Edition CD of the album in 2005.

These include “Teasin’” by King Curtis with Delaney Bramlett, Eric Clapton & Friends, “I’ve Told You For The Last Time” (Olympic Studios version), and the single B-side “Groupie (Superstar)” by Delaney & Bonnie & Friends featuring Eric Clapton.

The 1970 album came as Clapton was resetting his musical priorities, as he worked with Delaney & Bonnie and others in the lead-up to the establishment of Derek and the Dominos later that year. The album reached No.13 on the Billboard LP chart, in a 30-week stay that put Clapton’s name on the bestsellers as a soloist for the first time.
