Derek & The Dominoes - Layla & Other Assorted Love Songs (1970)

I'd never heard of Derek and The Dominoes but quickly figured out it was just Eric Clapton!

This is a double album that bombed at the time of its release. Now sometimes amazing, great, wonderful albums have no commercial success and it's only after the artist is dead or years later that people realise how awesome it was. Not in this case. This is just an average album with forgettable songs apart from Layla.

This is the long version of Layla and it's pretty good. But that's all I really found on the album and the rest of the time I was just plain bored.

If you're into some classic dad rock stuff you might like it - otherwise, I don't think you're missing much.

Score - 6/10
Recommended? To dads.
