The Derek and the Dominos album “Layla and Other Assorted Love Songs” was released 50 years ago today. The source of Clapton’s pain was his love for Pattie Boyd. She was then married to George Harrison but later married Clapton. The rest of the band besides Clapton had been part of Delaney and Bonnie and Friends. Duane Allman played slide guitar on most of the album. This is one of the few albums from that era that I like much better now than I did then.
Great live performance by Derek and the Dominos of a Chuck Willis song:
