    I always wish Derek and the Dominos had made more than one studio album. Layla and Other Assorted Love Songs is such a fantastic album. Still surprises me that it was considered a failure at the time. Though Rolling Stone now has the album on it's best albums list at #115.

    Some of my favorite songs off the album:

    I always enjoyed how this one was just a impromptu jam with Clapton and Duane Allman. That's why when it starts, the fade-in is them already playing.

    [ame=http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=cah4f8OKmDY]YouTube - ‪"Nobody Knows You When You're Down and Out" - Derek and the Dominos‬‏[/ame]

    And of course, the song most famous from the album:

    Though I've come to enjoy this live version more:

    Eric Clapton's soloing ability seem to have perished sometime around 1970, I think "Let it Rain" was the last thing he played actually worth a listen.

    I have the D&D Vinyl somewhere in the garage.

    Layla is easily the most cheesy and overplayed song in human history, the only part I like is Duane's introduction

    I still love the song Anyday, one of Clapton's best.
