"Guitar Rock Band" what does that mean exactly? I'm trying to see what your criteria is and why that would lead you to Derrick and the Dominoes.
Duane Allman and Eric Clapton in the same band is what leads me to Derick and The Dominoes.
while listening to layla its hard to say its not.
Personally, I lean more toward the Allman Brothers. Great studio and live albums with Duane.
The Derek and the Dominos album is awesome, but live there was always something off. Part of it was that Duane wasn't involved outside of recording the one studio album with the exception of a guest appearance on the tour. Also, Eric Clapton was messed up a lot of the time during the recording and tour and in spite of his brilliance, it does show.
It is just too obvious that Duane's involvement is what made that album as great as it was. Love the group, but I just can't go along with Derek being the best guitar rock album of the era when there are equally fine studio productions by formidable groups like the Allman Brothers, Wishbone Ash, etc.
Johnny Winter plus Rick Derringer as good as any guitar duo from the 70s.
Johnny Winter and Rick Derringer from Edgar Winter's "Roadwork" album:
of your comments. But the live Derick and the Dominoes is the bomb. I would really have to look hard to find better Clapton if there is any.
Sure would be cool to find a bootleg of a live show with Duane. I've heard rumors that its out there, but I'm thinking it's urban myth.
Agreed about Wishbone Ash.
Get the reissue of "Argus" for fine remastered sound and the addition of the "Live in Memphis" EP. The interplay of Andy Powell and Ted Turner can give any two guitarists a run for their money.
And the Andy Powell double-tracked "Throw Down The Sword" is as exquisite a guitar anthem soloing workout as any I've heard.
