Originally released in 1966, Fresh Cream features Eric Clapton fresh from John Mayall’s Bluesbreakers; drummer, Ginger Baker straight from the Graham Bond Organisation and versatile bassist and musician, Jack Bruce who, at the time, had just left Manfred Mann.

Coming together as Cream in the early summer of 1966, the trio released their debut in December of the same year. Highlights include the racing harmonica work-out and the call and response excitements on Muddy Waters’ ‘Rollin’ and Tumblin’, a spine-tingling vocal on the Willie Dixon classic, ‘Spoonful,’ as well as the self-penned ‘Sleepy Time Time’. Their rousing treatment of the traditional standard, ‘Cat’s Squirrel’ is the perfect track to show how all three musicians gelled to create a band that influenced so many..

      We were thinking that with ‘Spoonful’ and ‘Sweet Wine’ on the album it was ideal music to accompany your supper… thanks again!

    Looks terrific, but only one “TOAD”, that I can see? No alternate takes?

    wrong to make a blue ray without burning in 5.1 instead made for the Japanese market, I’m not interested in mono version.

    regards
