The MidValley version has slightly better sound quality, but it’s tough to tell the discs apart on the average home sound system or if listening in your car. These tracks were recorded in March / April 1980 at Surrey Sound Studios. Turn Up Down is a copy of the album that Clapton submitted to his record company. They rejected it and he was forced back into the studio to record Another Ticket. It is interesting to hear how tracks like “Rita Mae”, “Catch Me If You Can”, and others evolved.

What a shock, another knockout remaster from Mid Valley. This is one of those "Good News and Bad News" stories, the "Good News" is that the tracks here are clearly superior in quality to those released on the DJ Copy label. However, this release does omit several tracks found on the earlier release, so both are required listening to any dedicated Claptonologist. Recommended.
