When you set out to be "the best", as Cream did, you'd better be sure you deliver. And, after a very odd start with their first single "Wrapping Paper" - that left those who hadn't seen them live wondering what all the fuss was about - deliver they did with an album that remains one of the most inventive and powerful debuts of all time. Still exciting forty years on (and helped by the inclusion of "I Feel Free" which inexplicably was only released as a single in the UK despite being recorded in the same sessions) its combination of driving blues and Eric Clapton's incredible "barrier bending" guitar playing - evidenced to perfection in their stunning interpretation of Skip James' "I'm So Glad" - took the British R&B scene by storm and set a precedent that raised expectations of what was to come beyond all reasonable levels.

There was indeed more to come, but while much of "Disraeli Gears" and parts of "Wheels of Fire" were as good, if not better, "Fresh Cream" is infused with the sheer enthusiasm of a group getting it right for the first time. And, like all similarly brilliant debut albums, that's what shines through and makes it timeless.

Format: Audio CD
'Fresh Cream' was Cream's first release, recorded within a few months of them getting together. It was probably one of the first 'progressive blues' records and as such sounded different to anything else around in 1966, apart from perhaps Jimi Hendrix. Looking back now it seems to contain a slightly odd mix of melodic pop - "I Feel Free", "NSU" "Sweet Wine", updated country blues - "Four Until Late", "I'm So Glad" and harder-edged blues workouts - "Spoonful", "Cat's Squirrel" and "Rollin' And Tumblin'". As time went on it was these workouts that would come to dominate their set as extended jams but here they are relatively concise and in my opinion all the better for that.

Although Clapton's guitar is very much to the fore, the exceptional rhythm section of Bruce and Baker is very much an equal part of the overall sound, perhaps the first time in rock that the bass had been used in such an upfront way. Bruce's powerful and emotional baritone vocals were also a major and very distinctive element in their sound. I was never very keen on the drum solo "Toad" - not one for repeated plays.

For me this was Cream's best record, combining melody and emotion, with muscular playing that was relatively free but still disciplined and succinct. I think that later on they probably managed to combine the pop and blues elements better into songs like "Sunshine of your love" and "Strange Brew" but the later live extended versions of many of these songs added little to these original versions. Here they sound fresh and agile, and far from the lumbering dinosaur they would later turn into.

Two rock albums in my younger days typified to me great rock music......one was the first Led Zeppelin album.....the other was this...which pre-dated Zeppelin by about 3 years.When I first heard this my mind and musical tastes went into overdrive.Until this album I was totally focused on the Beatles and loved them!!!Fresh Cream showed me something else; but it wasn't until Clapton's extraordinary 'Tales Of Brave Ulysses'on Creams next album,'Disraeli Gears' that I really understood the revolution that was going on in music.Fortunately or unfortunately the Beatles have dominated and have set a superb standard.However,there were many other great bands whose influence has waned as a result.Any new band picking up on this will make a HUGE killing!....This album is a great starting point!

Format: Audio CD
In 1966 Ginger Baker, Jack Bruce and Eric Clapton were well known and well respected musicians who had each earned a reputation working in a variety of outfits. They decided to get together and form the first supergroup in the shape of Cream. Based on the British blues of the early `60s that they had each done so much to make popular, this new group harnessed their great talents to take the form to a new level, with infusions of rock and almost jazz like experimentation.

Clapton especially was never better than here. Each of the three had a tremendous ego, and a desire to shine brighter than the other two. This really pushed all three to make some of the best music in their careers. I don't know how it came across to audiences when it was first released, but I know that when I first heard it the album was a complete revelation. Having grown up in the `80s with parents who only ever listen to Cliff Richard, when someone first played me this record it was as though the doors had been opened and I realised there was a world of really good music out there, worth getting excited about. It was fresh, exciting, music that reached into the soul and jangled the nerves. Full of pounding drums, inventive bass lines, Clapton's searing guitar, Bruce's vocals this was the music that got me into music and thus holds a special place in my heart.

Hyperbole and personal feeling apart, this is a classic slice of British blues, fusing the worlds of blues, rock and jazz into a coruscating whole that makes this one of the best albums to come out of the genre. Classic stuff, 5 stars.
