Layla and Other Assorted Love Songs was the only studio album released by Eric Clapton's project, Derek and the Dominos. The band featured Clapton, along with Bobby Whitlock (keyboards, vocals), Carl Radle (bass), and Jim Gordon (drums), with Clapton initially downplaying his identity to play a series of smaller club dates as a new band without the star power of his previous bands, Cream and Blind Faith.
Their 1970 double album, Layla and Other Assorted Love Songs, featured the entire lineup with Duane Allman sitting in. It entered the U.S. Billboard Top 100 chart at #16, then returned again in 1972, 1974, and 1977, going on to become one of Clapton's most notable works. In 2000, the album was inducted into the Grammy Hall of Fame. VH1 named the album the 89th Greatest Album of All Time, Rolling Stone Magazine ranked it 117 on their list of 500 Greatest Albums of All Time, and in 2012, the Super Deluxe Edition of the record won a Grammy for Best Surround Sound Album. It is often regarded as Clapton's greatest overall work.
The artwork for the LP cover is from an original painting by artist Frandsen-De Schomberg called "La Fille au Bouquet," personally chosen by Eric Clapton for the blonde woman's resemblance to Pattie Boyd.
