Layla (Album Version), Derek & The Dominos
It was always about the first twenty five seconds for me, really.
You’re pretty much right. But still, 1972, stoned out, laying on the floor of my dorm room, listening on what was then a really high end stereo, it didn’t get any better.
I like the instrumental part where the piano comes in, ~3:10 or so. But yeah, it definitely could stand to be edited down by half or so.
I was going to link to something by Blind Faith, but then came across something I like better: Traffic, The Low Spark of High Heeled Boys (NTTAWWT): http://youtu.be/NRe42BDK_R4
Just Dave, yeah Traffic, especially that album, was one of my favorites back then.
Unfortunately this also always reminds me of the accident that took Duane Allman’s life.
The ache in his voice. Scorsese’s docu on Harrison, it just broke his heart twice. But somehow, he forgave them both, and seemed a much happier fellow.
And my daughter rolls eyes when I say they don’t have that in pop music. Allman’s ‘Melissa’ another great example.
“It was always about the first twenty five seconds for me, really.” Just 25 seconds is all it takes for you? Really? Ah, well…umm…perhaps you should see your doctor.
Love this so much more than the Unplugged version.
I confess to love the whole 7:03. I’m not done until the bird tweets (Duane’s slide).
That said, some of the slide stuff in the instrumental part is a little rough.
Great pop music leaps off the vinyl. This as great pop music.
The acoustic version of this is an abomination unto the Lord.
