Derek & the Dominos: Layla (1970)


And so to 1970. Layla & Other Assorted Love Songs was released as a Derek & the Dominos album but was of course Eric Clapton pursuing his post-Cream muse with a bunch of American session musicians largely drawn from the mighty Muscle Shoals Studio in Alabama. It is a real tour-de-force blessed with some extended versions of American Blues standards and the title ‘paean’ which is about Eric’s new love, namely George Harrison’s wife Patti.
