Album Review

Those Were the Days is an ambitious four-disc, 63-track box set that divides Cream's career into two halves. The first two discs feature every studio track the group ever released, plus a handful of unreleased cuts, alternate takes, and rarities. The other two discs are devoted to live material, which is segued together in an attempt to recreate the "ideal" Cream concert. It's a remarkably comprehensive collection, complete with an extensive booklet and remastered sound, yet it doesn't reveal any new insights about Cream, nor does it offer any invaluable rarities. Therefore, it's only for die-hard collectors or listeners wanting to acquire the entire Cream catalog at once; casual fans will be satisfied with individual albums or greatest-hits collections.

Customer Reviews


This is EVERYTHING by Cream! It’s quite odd that you are able to fit the entire legacy of such an influential band into four discs, but they have done it with THOSE WERE THE DAYS. Every song from every Cream studio albums is here: FRESH CREAM, DISREALI GEARS, WHEELS OF FIRE, and GOODBYE. It also includes singles such as “Anyone for Tennis” which is a great number, along with demos and alternate takes that will keep you interested for quite a while. All of the live numbers from WHEELS OF FIRE, GOODBYE, and LIVE CREAM I & II are here in two discs. Also included is the extended version of “N.S.U.” along with the extended version of “Toad” and an alternate live version of “Sunshine.” Now the only thing about buying this box set is that you don’t actually own the albums themselves, which can be fun to just put on whenever you feel like it. You also don’t get any of the BBC sessions, which are fantastic. But if you buy this with the BBC sessions, you will have EVERYTHING by Cream and you have saved some money.


I have just started listening to Cream, and let me tell you this box set is great! It has every cd, every song that i need to start my collection and become a fan. This box set is great if you are just starting your Cream collection, and want to hear some great mucic. I know its a little pricy and you might not want to spend that much, but for a box set with over 60 songs, its a steal! 5 stars, NO DOUBT!!! =) buy it now!

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'...
