    -- "Layla" may very well be THE GREATEST song in the history of music, any time period, any genre....and I don't mean the accoustic version, I'm talking the fully leaded original which includes the kick a** solo at the end.....

    The three that I know from him include "Tears in Heaven," "Cocaine" and "Change The World." All great to listen to.

    Re: Top 5 Eric Clapton songs - only solo & Derek and Dominoes

    Let It Rain - probably my favorite guitar solo at the end
    Double Trouble (live version) - pure blues
    After Midnight (original)
    Cocaine
    Layla - you can really hear the desperation

    Great tunes, but the fact that you only know 3 Eric Clapton songs is a complete travesty......

    Re: Top 5 Eric Clapton songs - only solo & Derek and Dominoes

    Being an old fart, I've followed Clapton pretty much his whole career. His 60/70's work gets most of the play, rightfully so. If you're a fan though, you might give a listen to his August album from 85. An under-appreciated album in my humble opinion. Some dislike the Phil Collins production and the 'big' sound, but still it's catchy.
