Derek And The Dominos - Layla And Other Associated Love Songs

Classic Thursday brings an absolutely amazing album to the forefront. Many people know Layla, but because of his superior solo career, think that it was done by Clapton alone and forget about the Dominos. Well, this record was the first of four (which is really only one, the others are In Concert, or Greatest Hits records) put out by this clan. And everyone still knows Layla, and how amazing that track is. I think it stacks up versus any other song ever made in the conversation of greatest ever. Who doesn't love a 5 minute piano solo? If Layla wasn't on this record, Bell Bottom Blues would easily by my number one in the Top 3. If you've never heard that track, go out on iTunes, Amazonmp3 - ANYWHERE and pick it up. It's flat out amazing. This record is pretty bluesy, seems to have lent a lot of influence to Clapton for his solo work. Crazily enough, I don't own this - so I'm going to tell you the same thing I'm telling myself - GO GET IT!! Top to bottom this is a great record and has something for everyone. Even if you skip to certain tracks most often, still worth it. Enjoy!
