Eric Clapton, wishing to escape the superstar expectations that haunted Supergroups like Cream and Blind Faith, launches a band with several sidemen from Delaney & Bonnie and Friends that would form Derek and the Dominos. From these humble beginnings grew perhaps his greatest album. Layla and Other Assorted Love Songs comes in at Number 16 in the Eagle's Greatest Classic Rock Albums of All Time.
