Day 6: Layla – Derek and the Dominos

It’s day 6 of my 10 favourite rock songs, and it’s Layla by Derek and the Dominos.

Unquestionably Layla is one of rock histories finest songs. Recorded in 1970 with Eric Clapton on lead guitar and vocals, Duane Allman on slide guitar, who added the magnificent opening riff, Jim Gordon on drums, Bobby Whitlock on keyboards, and incomparably produced by Tom Dowd.
