"Layla and Other Assorted Love Songs": An Album Profile Tonight in Ahmet's House

This evening we will take a full look at the penultimate album of love, loss, and pain. It is likely Clapton's finest masterpiece, with songs written solely or in tandem by Eric and keyboardist Bobby Whitlock. We will focus on the tracks one by one, and we will add in commentary from Bobby Whitlock from our conversations with him in the last few years. Part One tonight!
