Description

Cream s short original existence from 1966 to 1968 belies their status as one of the most influential rock bands of all time. They released four studio albums that were hugely successful around the world and had a number of hit singles on both sides of the Atlantic. In May 2005 Cream reunited for a sequence of concerts over four nights at London s Royal Albert Hall. Filmed in high definition, this Blu-ray features tracks filmed across the four shows including many of their best loved songs.

Editorial Review

They step onto the stage of London's Royal Albert Hall: Jack Bruce, Ginger Baker, and Eric Clapton. The capacity crowd, which includes Sean Penn and Jude Law, stands to greet them. Thirty-seven years after their farewell concert, the famously fiery Cream did the unthinkable–they reunited. This double-disc collection (and accompanying CD set) captures highlights from the historic four-day engagement, beginning with a buoyant “I'm So Glad” and ending with a triumphant “Sunshine of Your Love.” It would be churlish to suggest that Cream appears exactly as they did in the 1960s (Bruce looks a little frail), but the legendary power trio still has the goods. Bruce is still the essence of soul (a particularly rich vocal on “Politician”), while Baker is as irrepressible as ever (a rare vocal on “Pressed Rat and Warthog,” percussive tour-de-force “Toad”). Then there's Clapton, who remains as much a master of the guitar as of understatement. “Thanks for waiting all these years,” he quips after a slow-burning “Outside Woman Blues,” then adds, “We're going to do every song we know.” The track listing is, indeed, generous, despite the absence of such Cream classics as “I Feel Free,” “Strange Brew,” and “Tales of Brave Ulysses.” All told, there are 22 songs plus three alternate takes–and not a bad one in the bunch. –-Kathleen C.
