I don't know if anyone has already given a heads up, but there is a great thread on the Steve Hoffman Music Forums site entitled The Bobby Whitlock - Derek and the Dominos thread part 1 and 2. It is a super long thread, but Bobby Whitlock and his wife (Coco) are actually contributing tons of interesting insights on a daily basis. It may be the most interesting thread I have ever read. There is more info be divulged than in any book or article that I have ever read on the subject. I hope you all enjoy it as much as I have.

Wow! That is a great thread! Its actually in "Volume 2" mode right now...with a link to the 1st volume.

Here is a post from CoCo (Bobby's partner) about the song "Thorn Tree in the Garden"...

quote:
"Just to let you know ...
"Thorn Tree in the Garden"
Was written about Bobby's puppy that was put down. He was living in the Plantation with all those people , Chuck Blackwell , Francine , Indian Ed Davis (part time ) Jimmy Carstein , Billy Doyle ( who had one leg ) , Kay Poorboy ...there was alot of people going in and out of that house . People coming and going Taj Mahal, Leon Russell , Gary Lewis..

Bobby was told by someone at the house that he would have to get rid of his dog and cat ...so he gave his cat to Delaney's mom and when he got back home his dog was gone , he asked what had happened to it , and was told that the puppy had been "taken care of" (put down).
Bobby went and cried ...and instead of going and beating that guy up ...he sat and wrote "Thorn Tree in the Garden".
He played it to the person ...and said "Everytime you hear this song , you will remember what you did to my little dog". At that time he was unaware that it would be on one of the greatest R&R records ever made."


This link is to Volume 1...

"There was talk about having Duane in the The Dominos but Duane insisted that he wouldn't do it without his brother "

Slightly different take than i've heard before

Very interesting.

I am getting a kick out of reading this stuff.

I would have never guessed Thorn Tree In The Garden was about Bobby's dog.

Also, I like one individual suggested a Classic Albums DVD for the Layla album.

Cool. I have been meaning to buy the book from Hittin the Note. Maybe I should just go ahead and do that today. Thanks again.
