I must say I am amazed at the low ratings some of the reviewers have given this cd. Everyone is entitled to their opinions and I agree entirely with Amazon's review. Being a big fan of Eric Clapton, I own most of his solo albums as well as all the albums of each band he played in and I would have to say if you wished to to purchase just one cd of Eric Clapton then this surely is the one to purchase. The title is appropriate, it really is the Cream of Clapton and contains most of his finest tracks. You just cannot go wrong with this album.
