Unplugged  is the sixth live album by Eric Clapton released in 1992.  It was recorded for the MTV Unplugged series and includes both the hit song “Tears in Heaven” and a heavily reworked acoustic version of “Layla”.  The album won three Grammy Awards in 1993 and sold 26 million copies worldwide.  (More from Wikipedia)

The Derek and the Dominos song Layla was a hit in 1972 and again in 1982; and after Eric Clapton reworked the song into a ballad for his MTV Unplugged sessions in 1992 – preserved on the album Unplugged – the song made #12 on the Billboard charts.
