Album Review

There have been many compilations drawn from the four albums Cream originally released between 1966 and 1969. But the one most commonly available since the early '80s was the ten-track Strange Brew: The Very Best of Cream (1983), a barebones collection focusing on the group's hit singles. Note, then, that this album, despite the similar title, is a newly compiled 1995 CD/cassette containing all of the recordings on Strange Brew, plus ten more. It is thus the most comprehensive Cream anthology on the market, and includes all the group's essential tracks on a single disc with superior sound in a package containing good annotations.

Customer Reviews

A time when we were young and everything was possible.

This is an album that consists of some of the most seminal music from three geniuses who despite,(or maybe because of) their differences still turned out such wonderous music. All three, Jack Bruce, Ginger Baker and Eric Clapton, had strong backgrounds in blues and jazz, and they skillfully blended their different ideas to produce tracks that will remain a suitable memorial both to them and those who lived through that revolutionary time.

Go somewhere quiet and turn the volume up to max and be taken to a place where gods walk the earth and whose music lifts the soul and expands the mind.

Although Cream were only together for a little more than two years, their influence was immense, both during their late-'60s peak and in the years following their breakup. Cream were the first top group to truly exploit the power trio format, in the process laying the foundation for much blues-rock and hard rock of the 1960s and 1970s. It was with Cream, too, that guitarist Eric Clapton truly became an international superstar. Critical revisionists have tagged the band as overrated, citing the musicians'...
