Product Description

Amazon.ca

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

1.0 out of 5 stars Remaster ripp-off Dec 4 2003
Format:Audio CD
I can't believe this. just recieved Disraeli Gears remasters. This CD was never remastered, I played it along with the orignal CD, AND THERE'S NO DIFFERENCE. Moral of this story, Don't waste your money on cream remasters. Also, no additional text, and no bonus tracks. I also bought Fresh Cream remasters, can't wait till it comes in the mail, so I can throw it in the trash along with Disraeli Gears!

5.0 out of 5 stars Those were the days Sept. 10 2001
Format:Audio CD
Forged from technical expertise and personal animosity---remember Ginger Baker and Jack Bruce did not like each other back then---Cream came screaming across the music scene of the late '60s as a powerhouse that demanded to be heard. Though he did not write much of the material and what he did write tended to be eccentric, Ginger Baker clearly powered this trio with his amazing time signatures and ability to match Bruce or Clapton's inventiveness. Jack Bruce seemed to be in his element here: solid, clean bass lines and gutty vocals. Clapton was on a mission back then, and he is inspired throughout this recording.
"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.

5.0 out of 5 stars Power Trio Psychedelia Aug. 29 2001
Format:Audio CD
After their blues based debut album "Fresh Cream," these three brittish virtuosos came to America to record something a little different. Recorded in three days, these three musicains cranked out some of the era's hardest blues and rock. The album kicks off with "Strange Brew" which is a TOTAL ripoff on Albert King's style (one picture from these sessions actually shows Clapton with an Albert King album in his hand!). The song itself is a sharp and catchy opener with some entertaining pschedelic lyrics. Next comes a rock monster-"Sunshine of Your Love." Starting out with a damn catchy hook, and basing itself around driving guitar and drum underpinning this track really emphasizes what Cream was all about (note Clapton's "Blue Moon" quote going into the middle solo). After the ferosity of "Sunshine" they take it down a notch with "World of Pain." Even though it has rather elementary lyrics, Baker's drumming makes this song. Notice his wonderfully off-beat mid tempo drums during the choruses and his blitzkreig bass drums at the fade out. Keeping in the same toned down vein, "Dance the Night Away" follows with a gorgeous ringing twelve string intro by Clapton. This is a very unique Cream song, it almost sounds like The Byrds and contains some excellent eastern guitar by Clapton. This is certainly an underrated track in Cream's recording career, and one which fits the psychedelic era like a glove. Sadly this song is followed by Ginger's slow and sloppy "Blue Condition." This is definitely filler, as Ginger recites (yes recites, not sings) lyrics which aren't entertaining to a melody that can't even save it. "Tales of Brave Ulysses" makes up for "Blue Condition.

2.0 out of 5 stars Headphone music at it's finest! Dec 17 1998
Format:Audio CD
Cream, why do think they called themselves Cream? Because they were the "cream of the crop" musically speaking. What else can be said of Clapton, one of the top 3 guitar players of all-time, but throw in the best drummer ever without a doubt, Ginger Baker and great bass guitar player and very good singer, Jack Bruce and you truely have perfection.
I had "Sunshine of your Love" played as the first song at my wedding in 1986. If any of the non-talented musicians of the 1990's could even come close to Disraeli Gears they would be bigger than Elvis! I have listened to this album for 28 years and it still gives me goosebumps!!!!

4.0 out of 5 stars Classic album - terrible remastering May 18 2004
Format:Audio CD
The music here is 5 stars - the best album by a great band. Too many great songs to mention, most of which are well-described in other reviews. I'll mention only "Dance the Night Away" because it's my favorite Cream song and it simply doesn't get the attention it deserves. It's grand, powerful and haunting, with one of the best guitar-bass riffs ever, and gorgeous harmonic singing by Eric and Jack. But the real purpose of this review is to caution would-be buyers about the poor quality of the remastering. It is mushy, tinny and clangy, with very poor sonic definition, and that's why I've "docked" it one star. I find myself going back to my old scratchy vinyl copy to really crank this up and appreciate the music, and there's just no excuse for that. I can't recommend that you NOT buy this because it may be the best alternative available to you, but it is not a worthy production. We (and Cream) would be better served by a new and better remastering.

5.0 out of 5 stars "I've been waiting for so long..." April 2 2006
Format:Audio CD
I still can't believe that a band that was together for such a short period of time made such awesome music. Ginger Baker, Eric Clapton, and Jack Bruce wrote some of the best music of the psychedellic era. I think that Disraeli Gears showcases exactly what they were trying to do. Lots of heavy wah pedals and trippy solos make this album best to listen to while stoned (*I'm kidding, of course...*)
Great album!

Didn't mean to order this particular version of the album. I wanted plain black vinyl with a case but it was too late to cancel by the time I noticed what I'd done. Read more
