I heard a great tune on the way home this evening. I had never heard it before but knew it was Clapton. I found out it's called "I Looked Away". I'm trying to figure out how I could have missed this tune for so long... weird!!!

Anyway... what a killer lyric and Clapton at his best in those days, IMO of course.

It's the first song on Layla. I love that, and it's fun to play on guitar. The solo at the end is one of Clapton's best in my opinion. All the guitar parts on it are Clapton, too, and he had not yet met Duane Allman when they recorded the first four tracks.

Love that album! The outro solo is perfect....people who down Clapton need to listen to this album before commenting.

Without making this seem like a 'Layla' love in, it's not my favourite track on the album but it's a darn sight better than most other opening tracks on so-called 'classic' albums.

And then "Bell Bottom Blues is the next track" (also w/o Duane) that's a 1>2 punch. I love that album. Fun songs to play (as a guitarist) is "Keep on Growing" like trying to nail all the R&B double stops... and then playing lead or rhythm guitar on "Have You Ever Loved a Woman" great music and guitar tones

Probably still my favorite post-Cream Clapton album. In addition to the songs mentioned above there are ripping covers of 'Key to the Highway', 'Little Wing', and 'Have You Ever Loved A Woman'...

imo, "Layla and Other Assorted Love Songs" is the greatest Clapton record...ever!

I have messed around with that although never rehearsed or gigged it. One day I'll play the whole album ...... well, some of the guitar parts anyway.:crazy
