Derek and the Dominos - Layla and Other Assorted Love Songs (1970)

I'm sure you have all heard of the musician named "Eric Clapton" and if you haven't you must live a life entirely sheltered from rock music. He is one of the greatest guitarists ever, ranking up there with Hendrix and B.B. King. Well in the late 60s Clapton developed a love for one of his best friend's wives, Patti Boyd, who was married to George Harrison of the Beatles. He got severely depressed, became a heroin addict, the works. Out of this misery he made one of the best rock albums ever in Layla. He teamed up with Duane Allman of the Allman Brothers, and made this blues-rock masterpiece. I listen to this album accompanied with alcohol when women treat me wrong, as which usually happens. "Layla" is easily one of the greatest rock songs ever, not even exaggerating. Download this.
