1. No Track Listing Available

Performer Notes
  • Cream: Jack Bruce (harmonica, bass instrument, background vocals); Eric Clapton, Ginger Baker.
  • Personnel: Eric Clapton (vocals, guitar); Jack Bruce (vocals); Ginger Baker (drums, percussion).
  • Audio Remixer: Adrian Barber.
  • Photographer: Stephen Paley.
  • Although Cream was only together for a brief period, the band set the standard for future blues-rock power trios by redefining the role of each instrument in the musical triangle. Traditional arrangements had only the guitarist soloing, but the instrumental prowess of both Ginger Baker and Jack Bruce meant that a high level of improvisation was possible from all corners. Nowhere was this more evident than in a live setting, as demonstrated by the four performances included on LIVE CREAM. Taken from a series of dates recorded at Winterland and Fillmore West in 1968, Clapton, Bruce, and Baker all play with a ferocity that makes Jack Bruce's 10-minute version of "N.S.U." fly by.
  • Bruce's other collaborations with co-writer Janet Godfrey, "Sleepy Time Time" and "Sweet Wine," show off his honeyed singing style and allow Clapton to indulge his blues jones while the band flexes its improvisational muscles. Coupled with a straight reading of Muddy Waters's "Rollin' And Tumblin'," taken from a Fillmore West performance, is a previously unreleased studio recording of the traditional "Lawdy Mama," later re-written as "Strange Brew," a Cream original. This is one of the finest overall documents of Cream's instrumental prowess and stakes-raising chemistry.
Professional Reviews
Rolling Stone (5/28/70, p.46) - "...an excellent album...well-recorded, controlled, and tense; the timing of the band can capture the listener with an excitement that has nothing to do with nostalgia..."
