“Layla” was the only studio album released by the Eric Clapton led band Derek & The Dominos but it is widely regarded as his best record. The double disc was released in 1970 and shows Clapton at the peak of his powers. In addition to the smash hit title song, the album contains numerous gems including Bell Bottom Blues, Anyday, Why Does Love Got To Be So Sad and others, showing off Clapton's emerging skills as a first rate songsmith. The Dominos were rounded out by Bobby Whitlock, Carl Radle, Jim Gordon and featured slide virtuoso Duane Allman guesting on 11 of the 14 tracks.
The album places high on many Best Rock Album lists and was rated the 3rd best album of the 1970’s by noted critic Robert Christgau.
The 2nd set will feature a smorgasbord of beloved Clapton tracks leaning heavily on the inspired writing and playing found on his first solo album Eric Clapton (Let It Rain, After Midnight) as well as selected cuts from Blind Faith (Presence of The Lord) and Cream.
