A deformed bell-ringer must assert his independence from a vicious government minister in order to help his friend, a gypsy dancer.

'Layla' is Clapton ’s love song to Pattie Boyd, who at that time was married to George Harrison; she later married Clapton in 1979 (Pattie has had more songs written about her than most women). Clapton was inspired to write the first part of the song having been given a copy of the Persian classical poet, Nizami Ganjavi’s book. After laying down his song Clapton returned to the studio to hear the Dominos' drummer, Jim Gordon playing a piano piece that he immediately loved and decided he wanted to add it to ‘Layla’ to complete the track; Gordon, had in fact borrowed the melody from his former girlfriend Rita Coolidge. Whatever the detail of the story behind the song it remains one of rock's great love songs.
