The female vocal harmonies on the "Wonderful Tonight" are provided by Marcella Detroit (then Marcy Levy) and Yvonne Elliman. On 7 September 1976, Clapton wrote "Wonderful Tonight" for Pattie Boyd while waiting for her to get ready to attend Paul and Linda McCartney's annual Buddy Holly party. The song is mentioned in her autobiographical book Wonderful Tonight: George Harrison, Eric Clapton, and Me. In 1988, Clapton appeared in the Nelson Mandela 70th Birthday Tribute concert as a guest guitarist for Dire Straits. The group became his backing musicians for a surprise performance of "Wonderful Tonight" during their set. (Wikipedia)
