The legendary British guitarist, Eric Clapton has announced an upcoming project for the 50th anniversary of Derek and the Dominos’ iconic album, ‘Layla and Other Assorted Love Songs,’ and affected his fans to think that they’ve got old.

One of the greatest rock and blues guitarists of the century, Eric Clapton has been silent on social media and hasn’t come up with the news about his music for a while now.

As you may remember, he lastly released the track,’Let Me Love You, Baby,’ with B.B. King from the ‘Riding With The King’ 20th-anniversary edition through the end of June this year.

Months after the release of his last collaboration, Clapton has returned to Instagram to celebrate one of his former bands’, Derek and the Dominos‘, a landmark in their musical journey.

He announced that a special 50th-anniversary edition of their only studio album, ‘Layla and Other Assorted Love Songs,’ featuring bonus material of session outtakes, B-sides, and live performances previously unreleased on vinyl, will be out on 13th November.

Remarking the fact that it has been 50 years since the successful album released, the majority of Clapton’s fans have expressed how old they felt with the news in the comment section of his recent post.

‘Layla and Other Assorted Love Songs’ is the sole studio album by the blues-rock band Derek and the Dominos, released in November 1970 as a double album. It is best known for its title track, ‘Layla,’ and is often regarded as Eric Clapton’s greatest musical achievement.

The other band members were Bobby Whitlock on keyboards and vocals, Jim Gordon on drums, Carl Radle on bass. Duane Allman played lead and slide guitar on 11 of the 14 songs.

Here is what Eric Clapton said in his latest Instagram post:

“Derek and The Dominos’ ‘Layla And Other Assorted Love Songs’ turns 50 this year!

To celebrate, the original album has been half-speed mastered at Abbey Road Studios by Miles Showell and will be available as 4LP and 2CD editions on 13th November.
This special 50th-anniversary release features bonus material of session outtakes, B-sides, and live performances previously unreleased on vinyl. Pre-order now.”

A fan of Clapton, whose name is Larry, commented to explain how he felt with the release as:

“50!!! Fuck I’m old… Such a great album.”

Another fan has commented to express the same feeling as:

“The soundtrack to my high school years.”
