Derek And The Dominos – Layla And Other Assorted Love Songs

| On 20, Mar 2011

Derek And The Dominos celebrate 40 years anniversary with what is one of the best albums ever written: Layla And Other Assorted Love Songs.

For those of you who don’t know, Derek and The Dominos were the band led by Eric Clapton, featuring the legendary Duane Allman on guitar. Recorded in 1970, the album failed to achieve success in the UK charts, yet its legacy as one of the best piece of recorded music is great. Its blend of blues, rock signature Clapton riffs and Southern gospel has influenced countless musicians since its first release, and doubtless it will continue to do so.

This anniversary edition gives the possibility to those who are not acquainted with the record to discover its beauty in full, as well as getting a taste of the live performances as well as getting to listen to previously unreleased tracks.

The remaster is beautifully executed, enhancing the beauty of each and every note played.

From the opening track I Looked Away to I Am Yours, Tell The Truth and the marvelous Layla, this reissue is a box of jewels you will love and treasure forever.
