Derek and the Dominos: Got to get Better in a Little While

Hold on readers - this is not a full-sized LP.  This is newly pressed 45 rpm.  On super think 180 gram vinyl.  And it looks like an lp - with the small spindle hole - not the huge one.  Eric Clapton when he was briefly in the group called Derek and the Dominos wrote this song with piano player Bobby Whitlock.  The song did not make it on the the band's only studio album - the double LP, Layla and Other Assorted Love Songs.   But it was included on their fabulous double live album.  Eric and a small combo played (with Willie Weeks and Steve Jordan) at the 12/12/12 Benefit for Hurricane Sandy - and get this - they Resurrection this great song - Got to get Better in a Little While.  Listen to the song here:

If you like that version - click on the title of this post to here an even funkier version of the song with a stretched out bass solo by the aforementioned Mr. Weeks.
