Product Description

Product Description

Their 1967 debut.

Amazon.ca

Sorti en 1966, le premier témoignage discographique de Cream comprend plusieurs chansons originales et des reprises enflammées de standards de blues (notamment "I'm So Glad" de Skip James et "Rollin' And Tumblin'" de Muddy Waters). Mais quelle que soit la démarche, les onze plages de Fresh Cream sont d'abord là pour servir la créativité d'Eric Clapton, Jack Bruce et Ginger Baker, c'est-à-dire pour mettre en valeur leur sens visionnaire du rock. À l'écoute de "I Feel Free" comme de "NSU", de "Spoonful" comme de "Cat's Squirrel", il est clair que le "power trio", sans vraiment s'émanciper du sacro- saint idiome afro-américain, se trouvait alors au carrefour de tous les courants musicaux d'avant-garde. Un témoignage saisissant du rock des sixties ! --Philippe Margotin

5.0 out of 5 stars A British Blues/Rock combo that started it all. April 2 2004
By A Customer
Format:Audio CD
Cream was one of those cornerstone bands that influenced a great deal of musicians and continue to influence musicians today. This album (their debut, might I add) proves just that. Clapton, who was already gaining popularity as the next great blues guitarist, performs marvelously... Ginger Baker has to be one of the most skillful drummers of all time, and as Alex Van Halen once said about him, "he taught me that the drums are a musical instrument." Ginger produces a noisy yet colorful soundscape with his kit on this album, especially on "Toad" (where his drum solo could go up to 15 minutes live, as heard on the album Wheels of Fire).
Meanwhile, this album has a good balance of the feel-good upbeat songs (NSU, I Feel Free, Dreaming) and the incredible blues covers of Robert Johnson's Four Until Late, Muddy Waters' Rollin' and Tumblin', Skip James' I'm So Glad (thats more feel-good than bluesy), and of course the classic Willie Dixon tune Spoonful. Also included are some wild cards, like Sweet Wine, which I can't really classify, but I like it nonetheless.
Lastly, there is my favorite song of the lot, Cat's Squirrel, which is a rearrangement of another song (I don't remember what). It's a really swinging blues song with Jack Bruce on simple but effective harmonica. This song, I believe, demonstrates the band just having a good time.
All in all, this is a great album and if you like a balance of Blues and good ol' classic rock, you must start here.

4.0 out of 5 stars A solid debut album April 21 2004
Format:Audio CD
Fresh Cream (1966.) Cream's first album.
In the mid-sixties, one of the first major classic rock supergroups was formed - a little band called Cream. The band took former Yardbird Eric Clapton, and equally-notable bassist Jack Bruce and drummer Ginger Baker, and combined their music-making abilities. Although the band's days together were short lived, they made some excellent music together - and this album is where it all began. Read on for my review of the band's debut album, Fresh Cream.
As I previously stated, this is Cream's first album. On this album, the band hasn't quite found its sound yet - but they still manage to shell out a number of good tracks. Eric Clapton, although he is obviously the most popular member of the band, didn't contribute a single track to the lineup, oddly enough. Despite this, his guitar playing is excellent here. Baker and Bruce, who do contribute a few tracks, also play very well. In addition to the band's own tracks, there are also a few cover songs, the most popular one of which is I'm So Glad. But perhaps the most memorable track on the album is Toad, the closing track. This is an instrumental which consists almost entirely of a drum solo. It's one of the first major drum solos in rock history, and it's an excellent one. Ginger Baker deserves some major credit for this one. Overall, this album lacks the polish of, say, Disraeli Gears, but it's still excellent. So what if there's no hit single here? Every song is great.
Now, a brief note about the album itself. The original UK pressings of the album omitted I Feel Free but contained Spoonful, while on the US pressings of the album it was vice versa. This CD reissue of the album has BOTH of these tracks, so you won't have to buy two separate CDs for the sake of a single track.
