Derek & the Dominos : Layla and Other Assorted Love Songs (Hybrid)
He was in hopeless, unrequited love with Patti Boyd Harrison, the wife of his best friend, George Harrison, and that pain surges throughout Layla, especially on its epic title track.
And, considering what a personal album Layla is, it's somewhat ironic that the lovely coda "Thorn Tree in the Garden" is a solo vocal performance by Whitlock, and that the song sums up the entire album as well as "Layla" itself.

Although these are all love songs, the main reason why this album just plain WORKS is that there is no typical rock adolescent fixation on sexuality, and there is no hyper-sincere self-pitying narcissism that marks most rock love songs from the seventies and early eighties.
The other songs featured on the album, though they never came close to matching the success of the title track, are still excellent songs.
The resultwas pure magic, and the song "Layla." Clapton was in fact too bashful to use the lady's name, and instead substituted the name of a Persian legend, Layla.

Another great version is on "Layla and assorted love songs", both are in the same key and have the same basic licks.
Layla was written not only by Eric, the opening riff was from Duane (originally from Albert King's "There is nothin' I can do" from his recording "As The Years Go Passing By") and the later added coda was from Jim Horn, Jim Gordon and Rita Coolidge.

It was such a pleasure to hear the songs from the Layla album that really have not been heard for more than 30 years.
These 14 songs are sprinkled with the happiness and true delight of two people who love each other dearly, enjoy the simple setting of an intimate venue, and appreciate their audience.
Stripped of the electric guitars of the Layla album, the song comes to life, breathtaking in it's lyrical content, this song is a stunner.

 Derek and the Dominoes - Layla and Other Assorted Love Songs
There are songs that wouldn't be missed, and Clapton's dinky guitar tone (accentuated by the remix) is less exciting than the sustained enormousness of his Cream-era sound, but those are small quarrels with a large achievement.
"Layla," a raw tale of love as unrequited as any in art, is as naked as any song in rock and roll, as exposed as anything Clapton ever recorded.
None of the love songs are simple, and the band rocks away their blues in a series of long jams that are never boring.

For the first couple of years, Layla And Other Assorted Love Songs was overlooked not only because the public didn't know the story but also because most didn't even know Eric Clapton played on it.
From its opening riff to its last note the song is pure blues, Clapton audibly on the brink of the madness he sings about, and his guitar wailing, moaning and crying out all that was in his heart: "Layla...
Merely listening to the song is emotionally exhausting, and you can only imagine what must have gone on in the studio and inside Clapton during its recording.

Layla stands as one of a handful of pillars of classic rock.
In other words, this CD is about more than just unrequited love; it's about a transcendence of a whole musical form.
LAYLA, especially its title song, in which Clapton digs so deep that it's the aural equivalent of witnessing a suicide or an exorcism, shows that British blues is just as valid musically as anything by B.B. King or the Allman Brothers.

 Reason to Rock: Derek and the Dominos
The affecting “Thorn Tree in the Garden” was penned by Bobby Whitlock alone, four of the others were covers of other artists' material, the title song was co-written with Jim Gordon, and the remaining tracks were all co-written by Clapton and Whitlock.
Four out of the fourteen cuts are covers of other artists' material, but all of the tracks fit together seamlessly — not so much out of any grand design but simply due to the converging interests, sympathies and intentions of the participants.
The average song length is about five minutes, giving the musicians room to stretch out and solo occasionally, while avoiding the self-indulgent excesses that occasionally plagued Clapton's previous bands, such as Cream and Blind Faith.

 Layla and Other Assorted Love Songs - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
The first CD release (first released in 1983 in Japan) is a two-CD version, reflecting the limitations of CD disk length and is a "noisy" version, as it was a recording master-to-digital process that did not take into account the differences between transferring recording master output to vinyl and to the digital format.
The first disc is the original LP, digitally remastered from the original master tapes and re-mixed to studio-quality sound, with significant improvements including remixing the stereo placement of the bass, which in the early 70s was typically mixed into either the left or right channel, rather than in the centre.
The other two discs—entitled "The Layla Sessions"—included a number of jam sessions, including the historic jam from the night that Clapton and Allman met.

 Music : Layla and Other Assorted Love Songs   (Site not responding. Last check: 2007-10-10)
The short-lived ensemble that was the Dominos provided an outlet for Eric Clapton to vent his then unrequited (and secret) passion for the wife of his best friend, George Harrison.
LAYLA AND OTHER ASSORTED LOVE SONGS, Eric Clapton's best album ever, was born from a love triangle between Clapton, his best friend (George Harrison), and the best friend's wife (Patti Boyd Harrison).
The heartbreak and hurt Clapton felt when Patti chose to return to her husband led to a mix of hurt-charged originals and appropriate cover tunes, and when Duane Allman joined in on slide guitar, the result was the finest work of Clapton's career.

Returning unexpectedly to the studio one night after-hours, he found the drummer alone at the piano picking out a haunting, minor-key melody that he was recording for use on a solo album.
As Clapton was paying for the studio time, he promptly commandeered the tune and appended it as an instrumental coda to a song he had written called "Layla".
