"Cream" is of course a pun - but this is the best of Clapton!

One of the original guitar heros, Eric Clapton was given an excellent single disc anthology treatment with 'The Cream of Clapton', released originally in 1987. Despite the compilations that have since followed, this one still provides, in my opinion, one of the best introductions to his work, and at a budget price.

This playlist from Polydor records contains, in a nice listening order, material from Clapton's first band Derek and the Dominos (represented with two tracks: 'Layla' and 'Bell Bottom Blues', psychedelic rock group Cream (six, including 'I Feel Free', which is an all-time classic of it's kind), and some of his best songs as a solo artist (there are nine of these songs in total), making it a most comprehensive collection, and ideal for newbies who are keen to get their first taster to his magic. The title of 'The Cream Of Clapton' is an accurate one, and this three-time inductee to the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame, is a proper rock-and-roll legend. I think that all aspiring musicians or fans of real music should have some Eric Clapton in their collection.

The CD's booklet contains a detailed write-up from Clapton's biographer Ray Coleman, and some small colour pictures of the man from over the years.

The first three quarters of this album display Clapton's incredible ability in groups such as the cream and derek and the dominos, but tracks such as swing low sweet chariot lack the same talent.the variety in this album is excellent but most people like a certain era of clapton, for raw blues buy from the cradle,or r+b buy john mayall's bluesbreakers featuring clapton,for rock pop buy august or behind the sun,for excellent psychedelic rock/blues buy disraeli gears by the cream.the best albums in my opinion are, disraeli gears,layla+other assorted love songs,ec was here.these cover the majority of claptons quality music. but this album could be a good startin point as it has such variety, and from this album u can find ur favourite clapton era.

"The Cream of Eric Clapton" combines neatly "Strange Brew: The Best Of Cream" and "Timepieces: The Best of Eric Clapton", featuring 6 of the 12 songs on the former album and 8 of the 11 from the latter. in this, it omits the powerful "SWLABR" and the catchy "Born Under A Bad Sign" both by Cream and the fast and very enjoyable "After Midnight" and "Willie and the Hand Jive", a more mellow effort, from Timepieces, omissions which are frankly disappointing. having said that, the songs that are included are, to a man, excellent examples of clapton's undisputed genius. Personally i would recommend buying both albums but this one encapsulates the essence of both into just one cd. which is nice.

How many truly great artists from the 1960s still remain recording today?
Bob Dylan, Paul McCartney, I think Van Morrison is still going, The Rolling Stones and Eric Clapton.
And you may know others.
Anyway this has great stuff from 1966 to 1981, including Bell Bottom Blues, which is not in the Crossroads 4 CD set.
You can't go wrong with Layla, Badge, White Room, Swing Low Sweet Chariot, Wonderful Tonight, the list goes on, I say just buy it!
