Layla - Derek and the Dominos

Released in 1970, Layla is one of the most known and loved rock songs of all time. Originally a ballad composed by Clapton about his unrequited love for Pattie Boyd, wife of his friend George Harrison, with an added piano coda by Jim Gordon, Duane Allman signed on to the project, turning the ballad into the riff-driven rocker that it is today.
