If there's one Cream cd you buy this should be it. Released in 1967, "Disraeli Gears" was Cream at their best. This, the group's second release, is superior to their debut "Fresh Cream" released in 1966, in that the group was experimenting with a new sound, obviously psychedelic in nature, and was a step in the right direction as "Disraeli Gears" was a huge success, especially with young guitarists who eagerly tried to play Eric Clapton's guitar licks note for note (I know because I was one of them). Songs such as "Tales Of Brave Ulysses", "Sunshine Of Your Love", "Swlabr", "Strange Brew", and "Outside Woman Blues" were all excellent crafted songs. Clapton's guitar playing was better than ever by the release of "Disraeli Gears" and only Jimi Hendrix was considered to be his equal. Actually in 1967 it was pretty much Clapton or Hendrix and later Alvin Lee of Ten Years After who would amaze spectators at Woodstock with his lightning fast guitar licks performing "I'm Goin' Home" and who would later become known as the "fastest guitarist in the West". But nonetheless the entire group was on a roll in 1967 and sadly the follow up album "Wheels Of Fire" released a year later was to be last their decent album. If you enjoy classic rock "Disraeli Gears" is a must have.
