nr. 71. Derek & The Dominos - Layla (1970)

Gepubliceerd op 24 okt. 2009

Released in 1970, Layla is one of the most known and loved rock songs of all time. Originally a ballad composed by Clapton about his unrequited love for Pattie Boyd, wife of his friend George Harrison, with an added piano coda by Jim Gordon, Duane Allman signed on to the project, turning the ballad into the riff-driven rocker that it is today. It was released on the album "Layla and Other Assorted Love Songs," Derek and the Dominos' sole album, although an unplugged version performed by just Clapton was released on "Unplugged" twenty years later.
