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

One of the great guitar driven rock songs of all time. The outro to this song is one of the most beautiful pieces of music in rock history. Duane Allman's soul filled slide guitar fills around that great piano solo.

I took some heat from a few associates of mine at a FM rock station back in 1971 when I stated that the best of album of the 60's was Layla. One argument centered on the release date of 1970, which to me was end of the 60's, which began in 1961. In any case, a moot point but I still stand to this day that Layla is the greatest album of the 60's, as long as you agree that 1970 was the end of the 60's.

Just finished reading Bobby Whitlock's (keyboards and vocals) autobiograph y . So many stories and so much detail...I don't think he could have made up all these memories. The forward is by EC and the ending shows what kind of person Eric is. Read the entire story and don't skip to the end.

This song was what kept me strong when I was apart from my sons -It was Hell! But knowing Eric got through the worst thing that can happen to a Parent! Still gets tears in my eyes-He nailed This!!!

The instrumental end of Layla always reminds of the movie Goodfellas when they started finding all those bodies.

Check out I Looked Away on the Layla album. Most beautiful guitar duet by Eric and Duane. A little known masterpiece. (And yet another Patti Boyd-inspire d tune.)

Great love song for George Harrisson's wife Patti. Dwayne Allman blew Clapton away with his playing. Song worked Patti moved in with Eric. George said he would rather she was with Eric than some jerk. Eric & George were great friends until his passing.

Sang happy birthday to Eric on his 45birthday in Charlotte N.C. with the crowd on his journeyman tour. Seems like yesterday. Incredible show. He is the best.
