Cream's shows at the 18th and 19th of october 1968 was actually recorded for a possible livealbum, although never released. And the generally good sound on this CD do suggest that what we hear is taken from a multitrack recording.

Rather strange the CD does not follow the tracklist from the shows which to me seem to disrupt the flow, but of course you can program the right order.

Some tracks certainly sounds better than other sonically, but what's more important, the music is great, sometimes decisively chaotic and somewhat 'brutal', perhaps reflecting the tensions between the bandmembers. But when it gels it's really extraordinairy music, so intense and inventive, all three pushing the boundaries all the time. And all three playing at the top of their game, although Jack's vocal are slightly offkey from time to time. But his bassplaying is phenomenal and Eric and Ginger too sound in the prime of their youth.

As with the fine reunion-shows in '05 it's interesting how vastly different they can interpret the same songs from night to night. None of the versions here sound at all like it does on other releases. Especially notable is the 15 min. "Spoonful", not at all like the "Wheels..."-version.

So certainly a fine outing for Cream-fans, if you like this kind of 'official' bootleg.

Being very knowledgeable about Cream recordings, having written for one of the premier Cream websites (those where the days) and have an acknowledgment in Chris Welch's Book Cream, I purchased this CD hoping it would represent the first true, contiguous recording of the famous LA Forum concert of October 19, 1968. That historic concert was the origin of 3 live recordings featured on Goodbye Cream and one of Clapton's most blistering solos and ending riffs as heard on Sitting on Top of the World (all three using the reverse Firebird). On this new compilation CD, it seems to contain an erratic, out of order collection of disjointed venues, already available on many bootlegs. The tunes featured are as follows:
- TWO of the known live cuts from the October 19th show, Politician, and Sitting on Top of the World.
- I'm So Glad, sounds like it came from the Oakland, October 4 show which also appeared on the bootleg Cream California 1968.
- Spoonful, Sunshine of Your Love and Crossroads which has appeared on many bootlegs and of unverifiable origin, are either from the first LA Forum Show of the 18th or San Diego as some experts believe. It is fairly easy to discern the sound and ambient effects associated with the different venues. Clapton is clearly using the Les Paul for Spoonful, Sunshine (I'm So Glad from the Oakland show)and Crossroads because they seem to feature a toggle switch change which the Firebird didn't have and beyond that, have a more robust tone and thickness than the Firebird which always tends to be more anemic in its tone even when being driven by dual Marshall stacks (it had one pickup).

This is purely for cream fans: the sound is brutally compressed and isn't the best and some of the tracks can be found on other commercially released albums with much better sound quality.

But the superb jam on Spoonful (spelt Spoonfull on the cd) is worth the price of the cd alone, it really is Cream at their very best.

I hope some knowledgeable Cream fan will check this out before I make my purchase. First off, of the two dates recorded at the L.A. Forum, October 18 & 19, most of the titles released so far are from the 19th.( White Room-7:15,Crossroads-4:23,Sunshine of Love-6:22,I`m So Glad-9:13[released on Creams GOODBYE album],Politician-6:42[also released on GOODBYE album]& Sitting on Top of World-4:50[also released on GOODBYE album]. The only Spoonfuls that I know of from the farewell tour do not come from the Forum shows, but from San Diego-Oct.20-15:03, Oakland-Oct.4-16:59,& Dallas. TX.-Oct.25. If this Spoonful is indeed from either of the L.A. Forum shows, it would be a worthy pick up. Incidently, in the audience that particular night (19th.) was Jimi Hendrix, who was in L.A. recording at the TTG Hollywood studios. Of the songs from the 18th., there are only two that I know of, Crossroads-4:30 & Sunshine of Your Love-6:47. I have no idea where this version of Toad is from, unless its Scatafaragus(Passing The Time), from Oakland on Oct.4. Traintime might be from San Diego, Oct.20,9:41. Prehaps someone from Woodstock Tapes could provide some answers. If you`r new to collecting live Cream this is a fine title, since the titles on Bell Bottom and other lables have probably all but disappeared. Thanks for any help you can offer.
