  • This features the dueling guitars of Eric Clapton and Duane Allman. Clapton asked Allman to sit in at the sessions after seeing him perform with The Allman Brothers. Duane Allman plays the guitar solo using a bottleneck slide.
  • Clapton wrote this with his Domino band mate, Bobby Whitlock. In 2003, Whitlock released a new, acoustic version on his album Other Assorted Love Songs. The album was released on The Domino Label, which he started with his wife Kim Carmel in Sheffield, Alabama. For more on Derek and the Dominos, check out our Bobby Whitlock interview.
