'Live Cream' Volume 1 was the first LP I bought myself back in 1968 for 37/-; shortly afterwards I bought Volume 2 with my hard-earned pocket money of 2/6 a week. Each of the three group members (Eric Clapton, Jack Bruce and Ginger Baker) was acknowledged as virtuosos on their particular instruments. At times on these live recordings each band member seems intent on 'outdoing' the other, but somehow even after a ten+ minute improvisation session they all come back together at exactly the same moment. A particular example of this phenomenon is 'Sweet Wine' and 'N.S.U.' on Volume 1 and the almost anthemic 'Sunshine Of Your Love' and 'Steppin' Out' on Volume 2. They're still amongst my favourite bands but the cover of the old LPs are a bit tatty and frayed round the edges (bit like me, really).

4.0 out of 5 stars Bruce is God 26 Nov 2011
Format:Audio CD
The finest 'Power Trio' of all time at their very best and for sheer raw intensity this has never been surpassed. It's fitting that Jack Bruce is the main figure on the front cover photograph as he was the real brains in this group, providing a solid songwriting/virtuoso bass technique foundation for Clapton's soaring guitar. However, can everyone get over the 'Bruce versus Clapton' debate as they were actually very different musicians as their subsequent work shows and they could only ever work together in a group like Cream. However, I've given it 4 stars because of the mediocre 'Lawdy Mama'. What's a studio track doing on a 'Live' album?

5.0 out of 5 stars Cream Live and Dangerous 23 May 2014
By Tiny
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
All the live songs contained on this album are from the first Cream album Fresh Cream but the actual songs are just used in the beginning and end as most of the songs contain extensive jams showing the talents of Eric Clapton, Jack Bruce and Ginger Baker.

5.0 out of 5 stars Cream that hasn't curdled 13 Mar 2011
Format:Audio CD
Vol I is arguably the best of the two Live Cream volumes as NSU, Sweet Wine and Rollin' & Tumblin' are just so exiting - and still are all these years later. They represent some of Cream's best live work (only Steppin' Out on Vol II and, of course, Spoonful and Crossroads on "Wheels of Fire Live at the Filmore" are better) - but what on earth is "Hey Lawdy Mama" doing here? Thankfully, this is a very short track. This album shows what an amazingly exiting guitar player Clapton was - never replicated when he left Cream, unfortunately. Best listened too slightly inebriated so you won't be too embarressed when you pogo with your zimmer in front of your daughters' boyfriends.

I was never quite happy with 'Sweet Wine' from the start. When I got the record in 1971 I was just a bit disappointed that it didn't have the concentration or contrapuntal tension of 'Spoonful' another improvisation in the long stretched-out mode that only Cream have ever pulled off. I felt the reason it didn't completely work was that in many passages the bass was too dominant so that the balance of tension with the guitar was lost, and subtlety too was lost because of the sound and volume of the bass. The new mix which is included on the 4 disc set 'THOSE WERE THE DAYS' has rectified this showing that this improvisation was one of their finest, although it is in many ways an alternative version of the famous 16min Spoonful improvisation on 'Live at the Filmore'. The drums have been brought forward and the bass now makes just the right, subtle, sometimes almost subliminal contribution allowing Clapton's very nuanced, flexible but above all expressive playing in this performance to delight the listener. It's a significant transformation of this very important track, the only one that can be put alongside 'Spoonful' in terms of the length of the improvisation. These are the longest tracks we have on disc and they are the performances that demanded the most sustained invention, putting to the test the limits of the genre they invented.
This mix, however, and on the other hand, CAN work if the bass can be made to sound really big and 'bossed'(that is to say, big in the boss) so that it isn't so easy sometimes to hear the actual NOTES but one is aware of the counter-rhythmic punctuations of the note values which disturb the too easy attention to the other two. In other pieces by Cream it is essential to hear the notes clearly as counterpoint but here the bass should contribute a different role.
