Heres what Eric Clapton FAQ says about it:
Derek & The Dominos - Live At The Fillmore (Tarantura / SB6) This four-CD set captures Derek & The Dominos in two complete live shows at the Fillmore East in New York on 23 and 24 October 1970 (late shows). It ranks among the best boots ever issued. This two-show set rivals 1994's official release, Live At The Fillmore (originally titled Derek & The Dominos In Concert) for sound quality. The official release was culled from these two shows. Clapton's playing is amazing. All the songs you would expect EXCEPT "Layla". The reviewer from Where's Eric Magazine noted the following about this Tarantura release: "The one misnomer is the 'other' version of "Bottle of Red Wine", which on listening you find is the same version on both nights. One possible explanation is that in fact it wasn't performed on the second night, with Marc Roberty's book, The Complete Recording Sessions , listing it erroneously. Tarantura have noted its supposed existence and therefore, it is included for completeness sake. (The complete review is in Issue 18 of the magazine).Note that Fillmore Double Night (Mid Valley / SB6) is a reissue on Tarantura's sister label and is equally as good. According to Marc Roberty's book, Complete Recording Sessions 1963-1995, only the late shows at the Fillmore were recorded for possible release.  Note that almost every other Derek & The Dominos live recording that has surfaced is of inferior sound quality. Most likely, they are only of interest to completists.

The Unsurpassed Eric Clapton -  The Delaney Mix of Eric's first solo album. (1 CDR)
This is the "Delaney Mix" of Clapton's first solo album. Infinitely better than the official release, it has been said that Clapton himself prefers this version. His guitar is much more prominent in the mix. The disc also contains two alternate takes of "Lonesome And A Long Way From Home" and "Don't Know Why". Three mixes of this album exist and all are different. Clapton did the third mix and has said he did a poor job of it. Tom Dowd mixed the official release.
