Layla and Other Assorted Love Songs was the only studio album released by this talented ensemble. It was released in 1970 and features Eric Clapton and Duane Allman on guitars. During this project Clapton made monumental efforts to stay out of the limelight and play down his role so the band could concentrate on “being a band.” Many of the tracks on the LP were said to have been written as a proclamation of Clapton’s deep, unrequited love For George Harrison’s wife, Pattie Boyd. After years of addiction and pain he eventually married his muse.
