Derek & The Dominos: Laylas and Other Assorted Love Songs (1970)
Sometimes, I remember exactly where I bought a record. I purchased this, along with a handful of other records, at a lawn sale in Wasaga Beach. I sold most of the others in the pile (Traffic, Humble Pie, Grand Funk Railroad, etc.). I decided to keep this one, and I am glad that I did. This is not a really expensive record, you would probably have to pay at least $25 for a copy in good condition, but that's no so bad for a double album. I probably paid $1.
Layla is a great song, but I will go on record here and say that the anaemic unplugged version is terrible. I hate it and I simply cannot explain why it was so popular.
