Layla and Other Assorted Love Songs is a double album by the English–American blues rock band Derek and the Dominos. Released in November 1970, it is best known for its title track, "Layla", and is often regarded as Eric Clapton's greatest musical achievement. The other band members were Bobby Whitlock on keyboards and vocals, Jim Gordon on drums, Carl Radle on bass. Duane Allman played lead and slide guitar on 11 of the 14 songs.

But what really makes Layla such a powerful record is that Clapton, ignoring the traditions that occasionally painted him into a corner, simply tears through these songs with burning, intense emotion. He makes standards like "Have You Ever Loved a Woman" and "Nobody Knows You (When You're Down and Out)" into his own, while his collaborations with Bobby Whitlock - including "Any Day" and "Why Does Love Got to Be So Sad?" - teem with passion. And, considering what a personal album Layla is, it's somewhat ironic that the lovely coda "Thorn.

Eric Clapton formed Derek and the Dominos in 1970, after all of the band members worked together on George Harrison’s first album after the Beatles split, All Things Must Pass. Layla was one of the tracks on their first and widely acclaimed album, Layla and Other Assorted Songs. The song is about the woman he loves: Beatles guitarist George Harrison’s wife, Pattie Boyd. Indeed, it’s one of the notorious ten songs written by three different singer-songwriters who were smitten with Pattie Boyd. Harrison & Boyd later divorced and she and Clapton were married in 1979. The song’s name is inspired by a 12h century Persian poem about a desperate, unreciprocated.

VH1 The Layla & Other Assorted Love Songs album was their only studio recording, but it proved to be one of the few blues-based classic rock albums which avoids dull predictability or Led Zep-ish testosterone riffs. Clapton was going through hell during recording, having fallen in love with Patti Boyd, the wife of his best friend, George Harrison. As a result, pain drips from the grooves of this seminal record that has something for everyone – hard-driving rockers, stormy blues, wailing solos
