"Layla and Other Assorted Love Songs" : celebrating the 50th Anniversary!!







A unique cover for a masterpiece which was published this week, exactly 50 years ago.
14 beautiful love songs full of pain and sadness, but so  powerful and rich of passion.
Derek and the Dominos were Eric Clapton, Jim Gordon, Carl Radle and Bobby Whitlock plus the oustanding collaboration of "Skydog" Duane Allman.

To celebrate this important anniversary we have chosen the strong "Why Does Love Got To Be So Sad". Firstly,here below, the original with an incredible guitar duelling between Eric and Duane...





Then a fantastic version played at the Crossroads Guitar Festival(2013).
 Eric Clapton with The Allman Brothers Band: full circle...Enjoy!!









"Got to find me a way
To take me back to yesterday.
How can I ever hope to forget you?
Won't you show me a place
Where I can hide my lonely face?
I know you're going to break my heart if I let you.
Why does love got to be so sad?
Why does love got to be so sad?
Why does love got to be so sad?
Why does love got to be so sad?
Like a moth to a flame,
Like a song without a name,
I've never been the same since I met you.
Like a bird on the wing,
I've got a brand new song to sing,
I can't keep from singing about you.
Why does love got to be so sad?
Why does love got to be so sad?
Why does love got to be so sad?
Why does love got to be so sad?
I'm beginning to see
What a fool you've made of me.
I might have to break the law when I find you.
Stop running away;
I've got a better game to play,
You know I can't go on living without you.
Why does love got to be so sad?
Why does love got to be so sad?
Why does love got to be so sad?
Why does love got to be so sad?"
