'Layla and Other Assorted Love Songs' is the only studio album by blues rock band Derek and the Dominos, released in November 1970. The album is often regarded as Eric Clapton's greatest musical achievement, in ensemble with a talented supporting cast of Bobby Whitlock, Jim Gordon, Carl Radle and Duane Allman. The source of the centrepiece song 'Layla' was rooted in Clapton's personal life; he had fallen in love with Pattie Boyd, the wife of his friend George Harrison, and not even heroin could dull the pain. The Rolling Stone Illustrated History of Rock and Roll, wrote "there are few moments in the repertoire of recorded rock where a singer or writer has reached so deeply into himself that the effect of hearing them is akin to witnessing a murder, or a suicide... 'Layla' is the greatest of them."
