Background: 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 reached #16 on the U.S. album chart.
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.
