    Clapton wrote this song for George Harrison first wife or girfriend which Clapton was in love with her big time which she left George for Clapton which they both stayed very good friends but later on they both went through hell drinking & doing a lot of heroin. Today Clapton has a rehab named Crossroads after the Robert Johnson track which is some where near Jamaica. Derek and The Dominos sure was a great band that a super group of guys got together & i wish the band would've lasted longer.

    Aye, the tragic story of Jim Gordon. Sad beyond belief. His drumming was imaculate. Sad about the entire band, actually. Could have been so much more. Oh, well. We have the one studio album and outtakes, live album and bootlegs!

    Everyone forgets the great piano work of Drummer Jim Gordon on the Coda. I don't. His later fate is a tragic story best left for another day.

    @oldiesfanjohn. Yes John.... Radle and Gordon were both fantastic contributors to the album. Didn't mean to leave either out.

    This is a Clapton album with Duane accompanying on most of the songs. In an interview, Duane told listeners how to tell who played what: Eric played the Fender parts and Duane played the Gibson parts. He continued by nonchalantly noting that the Fender had a sparklier sound, while the Gibson produced more of a "full-tilt screech".

    Isn't this Clapton's original studio recording, and if so, then how could it also end up on one of Duane's records? Just curious.
