Vinyl Reissue of Cream's Disraeli Gears album which was recorded in the U.S. in a three-and-a-half day flurry of inspired activity before the band members' visas expired. This was the second album by the British blues-rock group Cream and it was released in November 1967. It went on to reach #5 in the UK and it was their US breakthrough becoming a massive seller in 1968 reaching #4. The album features the two singles "Strange Brew" and "Sunshine of Your Love". The album with its eye-catching day-glo cover was produced by Felix Pappalardi (co-founder of the Cream-inspired Mountain) and featured collaborations between singer/bassist Jack Bruce and lyric poet Pete Brown. Disraeli Gears is one of the seminal '60s rock albums.
Fresh Cream, the album that introduced this seminal super-blues trio to America, was perhaps a bit too blues-based to do the advance hype ("Clapton is God!") justice. Two of its three best-known tracks, after all, were blues covers; it was Disraeli Gears that turned Cream into a "supergroup." Here they pursue the psychedelic ideals of the era with total abandon (the LP cover art still stands as one of the 1960s' most striking designs), merging these ideals with their take on the blues and adorning the amalgamation with some superb pop craftsmanship. Of the 11 originals here, four--"Tales of Brave Ulysses", "SWLABR", "Strange Brew" and "Sunshine of Your Love"--earned major airplay. This, their excess-free greatest moment, does the Cream legend proud. --Bill Holdship

"Tales Of Brave Ulysses" and "We're Going Wrong" are stands out on a stellar album. If you only buy one Cream CD (excluding the artifical anthologies and best of's), I think this is the one to have.
