Derek & The Dominos

Derek & the Dominos was a group formed by guitarist/singer Eric Clapton (born Eric Patrick Clapp, March 30, 1945, Ripley, Surrey, England) with other former members of Delaney & Bonnie & Friends, in the spring of 1970. The rest of the lineup was Bobby Whitlock (b. 1948, Memphis, TN) (keyboards, vocals), Carl Radle (b. 1942, Oklahoma City, OK -- d. May 30, 1980) (bass), and Jim Gordon (b. 1945, Los Angeles) (drums). The group debuted at the Lyceum Ballroom in London on June 14 and undertook a summer tour of England. From late August to early October, they recorded the celebrated double album Layla and Other Assorted Love Songs (November 1970) with guitarist Duane Allman sitting in. They then returned to touring in England and the U.S., playing their final date on December 6.

The Layla album was successful in the U.S., where "Bell Bottom Blues" and the title song charted as singles in abbreviated versions, but it did not chart in the U.K. The Dominos reconvened to record a second album in May 1971, but split up without completing it. Clapton then retired from the music business, nursing a heroin addiction.

In his absence, and in the wake of Allman's death in a motorcycle accident on October 29, 1971, the Dominos and Layla gained in stature. Re-released as a single at its full, seven-minute length in connection with the compilation album History of Eric Clapton (Atco 803) (March 1972), "Layla" hit the Top Ten in the U.S. and the U.K. in the summer of 1972. (It would return to the U.K. Top Ten in 1982.) A live album, Derek and the Dominos in Concert (January 1973), taken from the 1970 U.S. tour, was also a strong seller.

Time has only added to the renown of the group, which is now rated among Eric Clapton's most outstanding achievements. The 1988 Eric Clapton box set retrospective Crossroads featured material from the abortive second album sessions. The Layla Sessions was a 1990 box set expanding that album across three CDs/cassettes. Live at the Fillmore (1994) offered an expanded version of the In Concert album. ~ William Ruhlmann, Rovi

one of the best rock albums ever, every song could be a single.
Stranded on an island, you got only 20 albums to bring, Layla's there!
One of the fundamental albums in rock history. Genius effort.

@franksteven s 6 1 0 I agree 100%
I am lucky to have both of these albums under my bed,as with a lot of others,from the 70's. They never get old,even though they are.That NOISE they call muzik today,can never hold a candle,to any,any of the great artist from the day. test of time,they still endure!!!
Love that song!

The acoustic version is way better

Slowhand and D. Allman traveled to Daytona to Hear a gifted axe man, whose style influenced Allman for the georgeous licks on Layla. I ponder what might have been but for Allman's death resulting from his riding crash under the rear of a Semi on I-75.
my daughter named her dog layla too!
No love for Carl Radle's backing vocals? To me, they make the album.
Named my dog after Layla
Anyone think Clapton might have had an interesting life?

Layla is Clapton's best! Or is it Cocaine?
Well, they're both really good.
Great time and I soooo hear Stevie Ray being influenced by some riffs on here
The most rock & metal stations on Pandora Radio!
Duane Allman is such a good guitarist.
You say you are old and go back to the Cream days? Old would be pre Yardbird days, John Mayall was the man.
Clapton is God.
Like the music, don't care for the guys politics, plus to the Layla tards, that was him trying to steal harrisons wife, plus it's Duane Allman playing the guitar, so take a lude and calm down. If you think I'm wrong, study Peter Green to get what I mean.
Can't listen to this long enough or loud enough. Named my Basset Hound Layla. Love it, love it!

I too am a huge Clapton fan! I am 71 and remember the 70's and other decades well. Being a DJ and Vinyl Dealer provided a wonderful musical experience. Also, this is NOT BLUES! It is R&R!

...for further verification , check out 'Its Too Late' on YouTube from D&D on The Johnny Cash Show. Bobby's Vocals!!! He brought Memphis to D&D.

Bobby Whitlock was the whole reason there was a D&D in the first place! Steve Cropper bought him a plane ticket after Delaney & Bonnie split...bobb y showed up in London while E.C. Was getting hair cut! Moved in and they wrote the Layla sessions ! Period! Whitlock should get more props... Read the writers credits!

Eric Clapton is the man. His live unplugged version is amazing also. And actually George Harrisons wife was the whole point of layla.
Layla...... my favorite song of all times...!!
Listen 2 Duane's Gibson slide. Simply the best!!!!!!
The best electric (duo)known to mankind
Great song. In my top 10 of all time. Jim Gordon (the drummer) came up with great piano part. Is now in prison for killing his mother. Check him out on Wikipedia. Very interesting dude. Played with everyone from that timeframe.
Goodfellas
hotbutteredg e r g
Great song!
E. C. who can top him. I'm old and go back to the Cream days. Layla is one of the best songs of all time. The early 70's were a great time for R & R and E. C. at the front.

Beautiful song! Layla
chemicalh2o
Derick & The Dominos, what memories! Layla was the Anthem song for a early real rock station in St Louis called KSHE 95 from the early 70's. Back when it was all about the music! They would use that song when they finished off with the rock news and they played the whole song!
onebirdie
Layla is George Harrison's wife

A short lived & great SUPER GROUP-----fe e l s like 100 years ago. RIP: D. A.
cool
gdstra01
The guitarist Michael Marc has a version of Layla on his cd Desperado that is haunting.
After hearing Layla again it saddens me to hear what's become of music.
I like the transition from the guitar to the the piano
Pretty good song!
