Cream Classics is a 3-CD collection of 50 of the greatest tunes that define the Cream era. This will be a delight to the tens of thousands of people who've experienced Cream over the years, plus an education to today's new army of house music fans.
This album is great. It will bring up old memories of the way clubs used to be; no attitude, just fun. The songs here show how despite developements in music, and the creation of new genres of music, any good old tune that raises a smile is a winner. These songs don't pretend to have any deep message in them; they were not created by DJs who try to explain the song with some long preambled story: they are just dancing tunes.
BUY IT. If any of the songs you recognise are your thing, I can guarantee that you will love all the songs here. Some, if you are like me, you will have loved and forgotten about long ago, but as soon as the intro to the song comes on you will just grin, and as soon as the vocal starts going you will stop what you are doing and sing along at the top of your voice.
All together now: ##YOU SURE MAKE ME FEEL LIKE LOVING YOU...##
At first glance I thought the choice of 'classics' displayed on the album were strange choices considering some were little more than 2 or tops, 3 years old. But when playing the album i realised that some of the newer tunes were infact classics as they remind me of top nights out or other great memories. And of course, all the usual suspects were on there...personal fav's of mine featured on the album are Gat Decor-Passion, Booby Brown-2 can play at that game and the brilliant Livin Joy-Dreamer. Also most of the songs listed are the radio edits so they sound exactly how you are used to hearing them, not all remixed and losing the brilliance they were born with. I had a jolly good dance to all 3 cds and on the whole it is a brilliant album apart from a few tunes that leave a little to be desired...ie D:Ream-U R the best thing and M People (my mum has their album) and the mixing isnt exactly top standard but a lot better than stops and starts, and long intro's and fading outro's.
In conclusion, a very commercial album with mega floor filler hits from 1990-2002 mixed pretty badly by a computor but nevertheless an excellent selection of feel good tunes that will stir up favourite memories of all who listen to it. The best Old Skool album yet, by far. Long live old dance!!
