With the exception of Blue Condition, I love every track. Couldn't afford it on my pocket money when it first came out (price in 1967 was equivalent of about £34 now), but have purchased vinyl and CD since.

A very concise songbook, only a few pages... Some 50 or so.
Accurate and complete , though they could have add a few comments telling you what scale
to use so you could improvise and make your own thing...This is something that lacks in most songbooks.
Note for note is not always easy, especially when it comes to Clapton's guitar playing.

The powerhouse trios second and best album is one of the best rock albums of all time.Clapton, Baker and Bruce play like demons throughout as they deliver such rock classics as Tales of brave Ulysses,SWLABR,Dance the night away and the bluesey Take it away.But it's the double whammy of Sunshine of your love followed by Strange Brew which lifts this record to classic status.Only the music hall type number Mother's Lament jars an otherwise great album and as for that cover-truly mindblowing.

Disraeli Gears is one of the first heavy albums ever recorded. Songs like Tales Of Brave Ulysses and Sunshine Of Your Love were so powerful they had a big impact on me when I was a teenager. At the time I played those 2 tracks over and over trying to copy the riffs and get the same feel as Clapton had back in 1967. The rawness of the sound and Ginger Bakers amazing drumming with Jack Bruce's great vocals and bass playing made Cream a formidable band over 40 years ago.
Songs such as SWABR and Strange Brew give this album some consistency. However there are a few tracks that I have never been fond of, they can be described as fillers. Cream probably thought they were humorous. Mothers Lament is awful and the track Blue Condition is also very weak.
Disraeli Gears could have been an even more amazing classic if they had more time than the week they allowed to record the album in New York back in 1967. It was actually a rushed affair because of the amount of time they had left on their work visa. There was also some resentment from the record company to the material Jack was recording incredibly.
Saying this the fact is history has given us this group of songs and they have formed a very successful album that was a big seller.
Disraeli Gears is a classic blues rock album that helped form a heavier form of music that by the end of the 1960s become hard rock and eventually heavy metal.

1967s Disraeli gears was the second album from renowned British supergroup Cream. Following their explosive '66 debut `Fresh Cream', they continued in the same vein. Baker's powerful drumming, not afraid to change pace and rhythm, Bruce's inventive bass lines and Clapton's incendiary guitar work combine to produce another album of boundary pushing (for the time!) and classic blues rock with a heavy jazz infusion. Unafraid to show off their solo talents, almost in competition with each other to be the best, each pushed the other two to the greatest heights and another classic of the British blues scene results. 5 Stars.

The most together and varied of the Cream studio recordings. Lots of things to discover and admire. A feast of memorable songs beautifully sung and played. They were one of the true groups in rock. Each musician was fantastic and you can hear that here. The drums and bass being as important as Claptons celebrated guitar. To this day Cream never get the respect they deserved. Read any poll of all time top albums and Creams work is usually missing. Thats because all the magazines etc pander to populist, commercial, middle of the road twaddle. Along with Hendrix, Cream pioneered the avenues of heavy rock. The more lauded groups like Led Zeppelin, Deep Purple, Pink Floyd, The Rolling Stones etc are not in the same league. They reproduced the same old stuff year in year out. Cream disbanded when they had no more to say. Clapton has remained famous but how many of todays listeners know of Ginger Baker and Jack Bruce. They should because they are far superior musicians than most of the recognised superstars of rock. And Bruce has one of the most amazing voices ever. Buy this and open your mind to a true classic.
