5.0 out of 5 stars Magnificent and revolutionary rock music. 12 Dec 2000
By Mr. Colin Rankin VINE VOICE
Format:Audio CD
This album defined the incredible power trio that was Clapton ,Bruce and Baker.A seminal album in every respect.If youngsters would listen to this today they would profoundly realise some of the limitations put onto modern bands by the record companies.Cream lasted only 2 years and during those 2 years were the biggest rock band in the world.......this album shows you why.

5.0 out of 5 stars Classic 1960s Blues Rock 26 July 2014
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
1967's 'Disraeli Gears' finds the power rock trio of Eric Clapton (guitar/vocals), Jack Bruce (bass/vocals), and Ginger Baker (drums/vocals) at the peak of their powers, both creatively and musically. With 13 tracks lasting around 33 minutes in total, this album is certainly short and sweet, but, just look at the quality - 'Strange Brew', 'Sunshine Of Your Love', 'Dance The Night Away', 'Tales Of Brave Ulysses', 'SWALBR' and 'We're Going Wrong' - all classic blues/rock numbers which make this album a joy to listen to. Buy this and discover your 1960s groove, guys!

If you're thinking of buying 'Disraeli Gears' this is the one to get. The stereo mix on the first disc is far from satisfactory on most stereo equipment because of the way the drums are presented - much too isolated on the extreme right and too lightweight, with the guitar too isolated on the extreme left; unless you have a system with particularly heavy and tight mid-bass clout, then it's probably the mono version on the second disc that works best for the 5 most important tracks on the album (Sunshine, Ulysses, We're Going Wrong, Outside Woman Blues and SWLABR) with the drums much heavier and better integrated into the texture. This Deluxe Edition is the only way of getting the mono mix on CD.

Also on the mono disc you get the live BBC studio versions of all the numbers associated with this album plus 'Politician' 'Sitting on Top of the World' and 'Stepping Out'. These tracks are also found on 'Cream:the BBC Sessions' but here the sound is much improved.
Unfortunately 'Sunshine' from the BBC sessions is not included and so one has to put up with the really bad sound of this track on the earlier album. Why?
But the BBC recordings of 'Tales of Brave Ulysses', 'We're Going Wrong' and SWLABR three of their best numbers, are good alternative versions to the ones on 'Gears' and will help to keep your responses fresh. They are very close to the album versions but they are different enough. 'Outside Woman Blues' has an interestingly different guitar solo.
For those like myself who can't stand 'Strange Brew' in the commercially released version there is the much more 'authentic' live version they did for the BBC with a single solo singing voice instead of the sickening double tracked one. In this form it sounds like what it is: a simple blues.

5.0 out of 5 stars The quintessential Cream. 16 Sep 2001
By bernie VINE VOICE
Format:Audio CD
Yes there are other albums and singles that may strike your fancy. But this one is the first to come to mind when mentioning Cream. It is too bad that the samples stop before "Tales Of Brave Ulysses" as each track is unique. Therefor you have to listen to them all to get a more complete picture of this group.
Warning this album is addictive I find my self singing, " Sunshine Of Your Love" a little too loud at work and then I hear others completing the words from other cubes

5.0 out of 5 stars When blues met psychadelia... 16 Jun 2000
By A Customer
Format:Audio CD
Released in 1967, Disraeli Gears incorporates sublime blues derived classics such as "Strange Brew," and also some psychadelic tunes such as "World of Pain," which capture perfectly the mood of 1967. Eric Clapton's guitar comes into it's own on the album as he contributes superb licks to many of the tracks especially the classic "Sunshine of your love," Overall it is a must have for any good music collection.

5.0 out of 5 stars A Genuine Classic Album 5 Aug 2014
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
This was Cream's second album, but the first to really set the rock world alight. It's the first time I've listened to it in nearly 40 years and it sounds just as fresh and exciting as it did then. It's choc-a-block full of great songs like Sunshine of Your Love, Tales of Brave Ulysses and SWLABR among many others, but my favourite is, and always has been, Jack Bruce's performance of We're Going Wrong. This is a genuine classic album.

Hasn't anyone who has reviewed this apart from 'Top Cat' noticed how unnatural and lightweight the drums sound on many of these tracks when heard in stereo. But it does sound a lot more satisfactory on systems with fairly thudding, heavy but tight bass; that does go a long way towards binding it all together

40 years ago when I first got to know this it was a mono copy I had - on vinyl of course. When I acquired a CD copy some years ago at first I couldn't understand why I felt so let down but I soon realized that it was the stereo mix that was to blame; it was neither the quality of sound with the transfer to digital nor the music itself thankfully, although not having heard my old copy for some years, for a short time I was uncertain whether my old estimation of it had been correct. But no, when I was able to hear my old mono pressing again I found it was as good as ever, and there are not many things in rock I can say that about. It's still not as good as the best of their live recordings, but I never thought it was. And it's not as good on CD, even in mono, as it is on vinyl, perhaps because a stereo cartridge playing a mono disc seems to give you a certain amount of right left separation, but it's still pretty good. See my review of the Deluxe Edition.
In referring to the stereo mix I am referring to all 3 stereo masterings that I have heard on CD, including the latest. One thing I can't complain about is the QUALITY of sound in stereo which is certainly very easy on the ears. It's not the quality that's in doubt it's whether the stereo sound stage and balance of the drums works well for the music.
Heard in a mixture of mono and stereo I would give it 5 stars.
