Complete Cream In A Box
The complete studio and live album catalogue of peerless 1960s supergroup rock trio Cream is to be gathered together as a boxed set for the first time – available to pre-order now from the official uDiscover store. Each album will feature exact reproductions of the highly striking original artwork from the releases, and will be pressed on 180 gram heavyweight audiophile vinyl, housed in a rigid slipcase box.
Released on November 24, the collection is titled ‘Cream: 1966-1972,’ as it extends beyond the group’s two years of active recording between the summer of 1966 and late 1968 (and the albums ‘Fresh Cream’ from ’66, 1967’s ‘Disraeli Gears’, 1968’s ‘Wheels Of Fire’ and the swansong ‘Goodbye’, released early in 1969) to the two albums of concert material released after the band’s split, 1970’s ‘Live Cream’ and 1972’s ‘Live Cream Volume 2.’ Each of these live sets recorded at performances by the band in San Francisco in 1968.
The set will admirably showcase the brilliantly inventive interaction between Eric Clapton, Jack Bruce and Ginger Baker on such staple recordings as ‘Crossroads, ‘Spoonful,’ ‘Strange Brew,’ ‘White Room, ‘I’m So Glad’ and ‘Sitting On Top Of The World.’ The latter two tracks were part of 1968’s ‘Wheels Of Fire,’ which became the first platinum-selling double album in the world.
The band’s combination of blues and jazz influences in a rock framework made them music’s first power trio, with an extraordinary influence stretching far beyond their brief time together and up to the present day. Cream’s worldwide album sales are estimated at some 15 million.

£64.99 seems a bit steep considering there is only 6 tracks on Goodbye, 5 tracks on Live Cream 1970 and 6 tracks on Live Cream Vol II. I already have the other three albums – all originals.

Why no mention of the source lineage? Is it all analogue chain? Who mastered/cut the vinyl? Where is it being pressed? Didn’t you learn anything from the Beatles mono box set about info people want to know?

Sorry to be King of the pedants, but “I’m so glad” and “Sitting on top of the world” were both on “Goodbye” and not “Wheels of fire”
