Offered for sale is a Japanese pressing of Layla and Other Assorted Love Songs by Derek & the Dominos, complete with obi.
While his career has lasted more than 50 years, many fans consider Layla and Other Assorted Love Songs to be Eric Clapton’s greatest work. Featuring Duane Allman on guitar and a number of sidemen from Delaney and Bonnie’s band, the album drew considerable airplay, at least on FM radio.
AllMusic.com gave the album five stars:
Wishing to escape the superstar expectations that sank Blind Faith before it was launched, Eric Clapton retreated with several sidemen from Delaney & Bonnie to record the material that would form Layla and Other Assorted Love Songs. From these meager beginnings grew his greatest album. Duane Allman joined the band shortly after recording began, and his spectacular slide guitar pushed Clapton to new heights.
About this record: The copy of Layla and Other Assorted Love Songs is a Japanese pressing, and is probably a pressing from about 1980. It includes the original obi and lyric insert. The cover is VG++, with just traces of wear at the corners. One disc is VG++, with a couple of minor sleeve scuffs. The other disc is M-. The obi is fully intact, but a bit wrinkled, as it was folded inside the cover when we acquired it.
A nice copy of a classic album.
