It also sounds like the perfect culmination of everything Clapton did to that point in his career and his finest vocal performance with its melancholy desperation of unrequited love;. Do you want to see me crawl across the floor to you? Do you want to hear me beg you to take me back? The vocals are harmonized by Clapton and Whitlock with about four or five distinct guitar tracks, making for a carnival of sound. Layla is often regarded as Eric Clapton's greatest musical achievement. The album is notably known for its title track, an evergreen rock classic, which had top ten single chart success in the U.
Alongside this are a further 2LPs of bonus material some of which has not previously been released on vinyl. All the bonus material across all of LP3 and LP4 is mastered normally so is not half-speed mastered.
Shortly thereafter the group disbanded but their short time together offered up one of the rock canon's most enduring albums of all time. From his early days as a guitar icon to a songwriter of great sensitivity, as well as an interpreter of everything from blues and jazz to rock and country music, Eric Clapton needs little by way of an introduction.
As a renowned solo artist in his own right as well as a member of the Yardbirds, Cream and Derek and the Dominos, he is the only three-time inductee to the Rock and Roll Hall Of Fame and is one of the most important and influential guitarists of all time.

Criteria Studios , Miami, Florida. This is one of my bucket list albums, so I'll just keep returning it until I get a good copy. Aside from that, the sound quality and production on this is phenomenal.
Released to sweeping international acclaim in , the same year his long-awaited self-titled debut album came out, this groundbreaking blockbuster extravaganza brought Eric Clapton to a bold new artistic high point in his career where he gathered up a group of musicians consisting of several band members that had resulted in the making of this landmark recording. You can read about the history behind this album in the other reviews, but I'll tell you why it's a five-star.
You can feel the intensity throughout this record. There's not one bad song in this collection, and even the covers fit in perfectly with Clapton's works. Anyone who covers Hendrix's "Little Wing" is either really stupid or really good. Clapton puts that song through a new pace and makes it his own. With the combination of Clapton's hurt, drugs, and the presence or should I say pressure of Duanne Allman next to him on guitar, Clapton was put into overdrive and put out a chunk of music that will never be matched, even by himself.
Although his guitar playing is outstanding in Cream and BluesBreakers, on this album it sounds like he pushed his guitar and made it sound how he wanted it. You can hear how he makes it do what HE wants it to, like the energy he had just bled through it. A perfect meld of blues and rock, and a piece of history. Have been listening to this since I was very young and knowing the meaning behind the music and also knowing that Duane Allman was instrumental in this album.
Well sometimes there are no words. Beyond excellent!!! See all reviews. Top reviews from other countries. Great Now-Classic Tracks. Who Was Layla? Make up this band.
Eric writing key tracks with other group members. The classic Layla is here in all its glory. Clapton and Hendrix became friends with Hendrix unfortunately died shortly after this album was released.
Clapton show his fabulous blues influence during this album. He then went on to his solo career. A must for all Clapton fans. It took me a while to getting round to buying this but it was definitely worth the wait. Support our efforts, sign up to a full membership!
