Layla and Other Assorted Love Songs is a double album by the English–American blues rock band Derek and the Dominos. Released in November 1970, it is best known for its title track, "Layla", and is often regarded as Eric Clapton's greatest musical achievement. The other band members were Bobby Whitlock on keyboards and vocals, Jim Gordon on drums, Carl Radle on bass. Duane Allman played lead and slide guitar on 11 of the 14 songs.

CD 1 - The Original Album: I Looked Away - 3:07. Bell Bottom Blues - 5:05. Keep On Growing - 6:23. Nobody Knows You When You're Down And Out - 5:00. Mean Old World - (Layla Session Out-Take) - 3:51. Roll It Over - (Phil Spector Produced Single B-Side) - 4:33. Tell The Truth - (Phil Spector Produced Single A-Side) - 3:25.

As the only album recorded by the band, Layla And Other Love Songs stands in history as Clapton’s most definitive milestone, but also as the herald of his fall from grace. This album was the divide between the before and the after in his career, as the downward spiral of his addiction hit rock bottom shortly after the release. Still, during the recordings, the whole band rode a chemical roller-coaster of cocaine and heroin and anything else they could get their hands on, channeling their inner creativity with no holds barred. Towards the end of the album, our fictitious guitar hero Derek gets to address his Layla. On his knees, begging for her love, Clapton bares his soul for the world to see and hear, but with no fucks given. Layla is between him and her, and we are just the crowd of drama vultures gathered to see the spectacle playing out before us in the street.

Layla and Other Love Songs – the double-album that Derek and the Dominos recorded over the next 6 weeks showcased the creative singing and songwriting axis formed by Clapton and the Memphis-born Bobby Whitlock, who had grown up around the city’s legendary Stax Studios  .

Derek and the Dominos was a music group formed in the spring of 1970 by guitarist and singer Eric Clapton along with Bobby Whitlock, Carl Radle and Jim Gordon, who had all played with him in Delaney & Bonnie & Friends. Duane Allman from the Allman Brothers Band joined the group early in the recording of their first album. They were a blues-rock band that demonstrated virtuosity at its finest, showing some of Eric "Slowhand" Clapton's finest work.

I can tell you all about Eric Clapton. I can tell you about Duane Allman. I could tell you how great every one of these songs are but the bottom line is, if you had to go to a desert island and could only take three albums this would have to be one of them. This masterpiece is 68 minutes of heaven.
Great emotional songs performed by two of the greatest guitarists of all-time with a solid band backing them and the production of Tom Dowd results in one of the greatest rock albums ever to be recorded. This one is a must for any serious music fan's collection!!!! Oh to have been in the recording studio when this one was being made!!!!
A masterpiece. The result of some strange alchemy when all the elements combine to produce a glorious creation. Spanning four sides and more than an hour of music yet not an ounce of fat and if anything you are left wanting more. What are those elements: impassioned songs, emotionally charged performances, searing virtuosity, and a fluid yet cohesive groove. The band was firing on all cylinders after months on the road with Delaney & Bonnie and the duelling guitars from Clapton and Allman squeeze the last drop of feeling from every note. Of course the secret ingredient that elevated the entire proceedings was the very real and personal backstory of unfulfilled love that make these tales of longing and loss so poignant. It seems churlish of me though to bring up the nagging regret that EC would never again sound so urgent or put anything on record anywhere close to this. It's the real deal and it is hard to reconcile this with much of his insipid middle-of-the-road output of the past thirty plus years. Shame, but at least revel in this dream of an album that's as honest and inspiring as rock music can get.
Bought this 1972 if I remember rightly - same time as I purchased Bowie's Ziggy Startdust - on the strength of the single Layla. To be honest it took a while to grow on me - I was young and not familiar with Clapton's earlier work. But what a record this is! Never stopped going back to it again and again and listening now it's just as moving and remarkable as it was then. Just one of those albums where everything comes together and produces something greater than the sum of its parts. The band is tight and a great foil for Clapton, the new songs have since become classics and the blues standards and covers are no less exciting. The word 'classic' is bandied around way too often but if there are just a handful of true classic rock albums, then this is definitely one of them.
One of the first LP's I ever bought and still one of the best. Not much makes me cry because I'm so bitter and cynical but several moments on this EPIC record make me tear up.

Aside from some ball-busting playing from Clapton and Allman, what truly sets this album apart from other blues-rock records is Clapton's Genuine heartache: It's one thing to sing about the blues, but it's another thing entirely to REALLY feel it, and through his tortured lyrics and emotive playing, it's clear to see that Clapton does.
As many reviewers have noted, this is, without a doubt one of the greatest albums in rock history. And it remains my favorite of all time. It essentially illustrates what elements are necessary to produce a classic album that will remain timeless: superb performances by highly skilled and creative musicians; emotionally-driven writing / singing / playing, and; excellent recording skills by one of the best recording engineers. The signature song is best heard via a set of quality headphones, to truly hear the interplay of Clapton and Allman's guitars. Each drew out the best of the other and we have what is, to me, one of the best listening experiences available. Yes, Clapton was quite creative in findings ways to interpret Layla acoustically, but nothing comes close to the studio version. Emotional, intense, it's all there. You can just feel Eric's intensity on 'Why Does Love Got To Be So Sad". Jimmy Hendrix would be very proud of the Little WIng interpretation. Layla demonstrates what's missing in most of today's music.
An absolute classic. It deserves to be memorized note-for-note, which is saying a lot for a double album filled out with blues covers ("Key To The Highway"). The Dominos didn't quite have their sound worked out when Duane Allman showed up at the studio and proceeded to shame Clapton with his unbelievably scorching slide guitar parts. Clapton rose to the challenge, and the result is a phenomenal duel on one song after another. The title track is overplayed, but there are masterful, broken-hearted love songs throughout the record ("Anyday"; "Bell Bottom Blues"; the blistering, warp speed "Why Does Love Got To Be So Sad"; the acoustic guitar trio arrangement on Bobby Whitlock's overwrought "Thorn Tree In The Garden"). Hendrix's death coincidentally occurred during the recording sessions, and a capable tribute ("Little Wing") only proves that no one could beat the master at his own game.
I'm not a huge fan of Clapton's I find his music hard to get into for some reason!, But Layla is a brilliant album. For me it sounds as across between a Allman's Album and Harrison's All Things Must Pass, The title song is a masterpiece of a song, shame Clapton hasn't done anything similar or he may have but I've not read anything to equal this one!?.
One of my 20 favorite rock albums ever. Whitlock, Radle, Gordon allowed Eric to shine on this one. Also, some of those 60's Clapton recordings seem to have that "wall of sound" type thing going on, which dates them....and his 70's - projects since tend to be a bit sterile to me. This one is a timeless sound.
