This review is from: Wheels Of Fire (Audio CD)
A great band at the top of their form.
A studio album and a live album.
The 4 live tracks capture Cream at their stunning best.
The quality of the interplay and improvisation is stunning. Claptons stunning work on Crossroads and the interplay between Bruce and Clapton and Baker on Spoonful is unsurpassed No other rock band had come close to this at this point.
The studio tracks are great too from the power blues of Sitting On Top Of The World and Born Under A Bad Sign to the classic power rock of the Bruce/Brown penned White Room (one of the greates rock songs ever) and Ginger Bakers fun recitation on Pressed Rat and Warthog.
This group influenced so much. Yet the people who followed ended up more revered and lauded and they were not fit to stand in their boots.
Keep listening to Cream folks.
