  • When drummer Ginger Baker decided to form his own band, he reached out to the cream of British musicians, and recruited guitarist Eric Clapton and his rhythm mate from the Alexis Korner and Graham Bond bands, bassist Jack Bruce. Cream ushered in a formidable new wave of electric blues bands, including the Jimi Hendrix Experience and Led Zeppelin. Among the converts was a 13-year old Irish guitarist named Gary Moore, who saw Cream in Belfast and went on to form Thin Lizzy with Phil Lynott.
  • BBM's AROUND THE NEXT DREAM is the culmination of Moore's boyhood dream to play in a blues band like Cream. With his muscular Les Paul timbre and dancing attack, Moore invokes the spirit of Eric Clapton and all the great British blues players of the '60s, to particular effect on the jump blues workout "Wonder Why" and the ferocious variations of "Why Does Love Have To Go Wrong" (which echoes the Bruce-Baker groove on "We're Going Wrong").
  • Needless to say, echoes of Cream (and the bassist's esteemed solo albums) set the overall tone, in Bruce's dramatic vocal leaps from earthy tenor to keening falsetto, and in fresh material which suggests great grooves of yore, such as "Waiting In The Wings" ("Tales Of Brave Ulysses"/"Golden Days"), "City Of Gold" ("Crossroads") and "Glory Days" ("White Room"). However, on "Naked Flame," Gary Moore's vocal feature, Baker's slow fatback groove recalls those Memphis and Muscle Shoals rhythm sections that used to back up Otis Redding and Aretha, while "Wrong Side Of Town" is a moody film noire ballad full of quirky melodic twists--making AROUND THE NEXT DREAM more than just an exercise in nostalgia.
Professional Reviews
Q (8/94, p.98) - 4 Stars - Excellent - "...BBM are not Cream re-formed with one notable omission, but a credible band in their own right..."
