LaylaCover#2– Derek & The Dominos – “Layla” – (1970)

I can’t stress it enough: Just remember, no matter how good you are at what you do, you’ll never be as good as Eric Clapton at what he does. Here are the major bands Clapton has been a part of: The Yardbirds, Cream, John Mayall & The Bluesbreakers, Derek & The Dominos, Blind Faith, Delaney & Bonnie & Friends. Not to mention his illustrious solo career.

This band was short-lived, they were only around in 1970 and 1971 and kind of seemed like a vehicle to release this epic track. They only release one album and were made up of a lot of Delaney & Bonnie & Friends. This was a top ten hit upon release and Clapton would take it to #12 in 1992/1993 after doing it on MTV’s Unplugged.
