Can't go wrong with Clapton. Anyone heard his new "Clapton & Friends" release? Could be very good.....escheator said:Derek & The Dominos - Bell Bottom Blues
Derek & The Dominos - Nobody Knows You When You're Down And Out
Pretty much, the whole album with the aforementioned songs:
Derek & The Dominos - Layla and Other Assorted Love Songs
So very true, mind you I think they really went downhill when Steve Hackett left, the first two after PG's departure weren't too bad, but that was indeed the start of the descent into cr4pness.Libertine Seguros said:How can a band that later became so terrible have been so amazing before?

hmm haven't heard it but usually as much as I love the impressionists in paintings, I don't really like them in music. Ravel's Bolero I find the themes lovely but the piece is too repetitive for me.Maaaaaaaarten said:Maurice Ravel - Tocatta from le Tombeau de Couperin
I agree about the Bolero, but a lot of the impressionist music is very different. The famous pieces from Debussy and Ravel, like the Bolero, or Clair de Lune or Rêverie are a bit more accessible for a larger audience, than most of their music and therefore they have become more famous. They use more conventional melodies and chords and a lot of the more unconventional harmonies and melodies still sound quite peaceful, dreamy and relaxed. However, Debussy and Ravel also have much more modern pieces that were very much avant garde for their day, moving towards atonality, not shunning dissonance and using very unconventional and sometimes very harsh harmonies, melodies and rhythm's.Echoes said:hmm haven't heard it but usually as much as I love the impressionists in paintings, I don't really like them in music.
