I bought my copy of BBM's 'AROUND the NEXT DREAM' about 20 years ago from a market stall in a small town in Dorset.. it was secondhand, reduced and I took a punt on buying it but Hey, it was a couple of quid so why not? I'm really glad I made that purchase as it's been a huge favorite of mine ever since!
What Ginger, Jack and Gary Moore do here is a kind of 'Homage' to the very best of Cream. Yes, the songs are totally in the style of Cream when they did 'Wheels of Fire', 'Tales of Brave Ulysses' etc.. some may be disappointed by that fact and say that makes it derivative or something of less value somehow, but if you loved that early stuff, believe me you'll LOVE this album.. there REALLY isn't a dud track!
I've never been a big fan of Gary Moore myself, never rated him as one of the greats, but his performance with this 'revamped' Cream-style Resurrection is nothing less than stellar. Anyone who was around when Eric Clapton started with Mayall and Cream will remember with tingles the thrill of that screaming, wailing tone he could coax from his Les Paul back then…Mmmm. Here GM cuts the mustard to the quick by repeating those very same riffs and more.. He has that sound off pat. He screams, wails and hollers, his axe Shrieks dammit, with Ginger Baker thrashing the old skins, a great gutsy underpinning bass from Jack Bruce and some of the best rip-roaring vocals he EVER produced, may he Rest in Peace, God bless him.
Seriously, if you loved Cream, early Clapton, any old John Mayall, Gary Moore or any of the above.. BUY THIS ALBUM, you'll love it too I'm certain.. (probably best not to listen whilst driving though, that could prove VERY dangerous!) It's best cranked up LOUD at home, get out the air-guitar and put on your dancing shoes, these lads will surely rock you, old-style!! A lot of truly brilliant guitar solos!
I was surprised to see that the album's still available, in print as it were.. get it while you can, I think it's a classic and some of the best music any of the trio produced at any point in their respective careers.. it's only a pity that they didn't produce any more albums with this line-up, it worked SO well!
Thanks then and ENJOY! Px :))x 5 STARS.. Essential listening for CREAM fans and anyone who likes their road ROCKY..
But as much as i love him - jacks work outside cream has been very hit and miss. The very best of his work has been in collaboration with robin trower with the BLT albums and the epic 'seven moons' release a few years back. I was very excited by the formation of west, bruce and laing, but both those albums were a strange dissapointment and failed to live up to their potential. likewise with this BBM release. Its a very strange album indeed. A couple of ballads which are quite interesting without really saying much. A couple of very corny blues-rockers. And 4 songs which so very much steal riffs and melodies from creams back catalogue that i really did think that the boys were having a wind-up!
Thus - 'waiting in the wings' is 'white room'
'city of gold' is 'crossroads
'high cost of loving' is 'born under a bad sign'
and 'why does love have to go wrong' is 'we're going wrong'
None of this means its a bad album. How can it be bad with such towering talent on offer? - but as with WB&L and jacks solo work in general, it just never really catches fire.
Would love to have seen jack really get into some heavier work in recent years. Maybe collaborations with tony iommi or jimmy page!(the mind boggles!)- Alas we will never see that. But this is taking nothing away from the great mans legacy. This guy was the founding father of heavy rock man! let that never be forgotten. And with cream, he has left a body of music that will never die
The updating of the Cream style is just stunning with Moore's beguiling guitar, Bakers maniacal drumming and Bruces voice. I don't know how I stumbled on this but I did my duty and alerted several of my friends to it for which they thanked me.
Its up there with Hotel California and Harvest Moon.
Note that the remastered version of this CD (Around the Next Dream: Remastered), which I bought, has with 4 bonus tracks (2 live) and is available on Amazon at only £3.99 so I would recommend buying this instead. I am therefore giving the original album 4 stars as the remastered deserves 5 stars.
