5.0 out of 5 stars complete ! May 21 2013
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
If you are not a big Cream fan and all you want is the music but not the original albums, this is the ONE ! I believe you get in this box set 90% of all they did... that is worth listening to.

5.0 out of 5 stars 'Cream' of the Crop! May 28 2006
By Johnnie Neptune TOP 1000 REVIEWER
Format:Audio CD
I don't like buying something for the umpteenth time anymore than I am sure you do! I've bought albums like "Live At Leeds" by the Who more than once for format, bonus tracks, deluxe editions, etc. Cream are one of those groups who have been repackaged faster than you can say "Swlabr" . However, this double CD represents the best of Cream in a way that makes the most sense - one side studio, one side live. You expect studio material to sound pretty good these days. It's the live material that is more of a gamble. Not here! You get the full Cream experience in concert and in my opinion, this is the better of the 2 discs. While the studio disc contains the definitive versions of all the important songs like Badge, Strange Brew, Sunshine of Your Love, I Feel Free and White Room, the live disc just flows...you don't want to interrupt it. Just sit back and enjoy it as the playing unfolds with the ultimate concert experience of this short lived and influential trio. Better than the current reunion disc. And don't forget the power of their version of Crossroads live. So have your cake, eat it too and at a budget price you just can't beat!

5.0 out of 5 stars One Of The Best Supergroups Nov. 20 2005
By Clyde Bouley - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
Where should I start? For one thing this Gold series is the best thing that any company has done for classic rock music. I will be writing for the rest of the groups that I have in the Gold series. 5 stars would not do this justice. For a greatest hits CD this is the best you can get and probably will not get any better now or in the future. Lets start off this way, The Cream is one of the best early super groups around. So you will understand what I'm comparing this too, here is what I have, 1) Fresh Cream (Regular and the 24K Gold CDs). 2) Disraeli Gears (the regular, 24K Gold and Deluxe Edition CDs), 3) Wheels Of Fire (the regular, and 24K Gold CDs), 4) Goodbye Cream (Regular and 24K Gold CDs), 5&6) Live Cream and Live Cream II (regular and 24K Gold CDs). The Best of Cream (regular CD). So everyone understands regular CD means first releases, very little if any cleanup for CD issue. Now to top things off I have The Box set "Those Were The Days". All of this in the quest of getting the best sound quality Cream music. Yes I guess I could be considered a Cream fanatic. Just so you will understand there are other groups I have gone through this with. Buy the way for each of the upgrades they did get better. Topping off with the Deluxe Edition, which I believe is the ULTAMATE! But I seem to be going off on a tangent. So let me say this about the Cream: Gold, 1) They did an excellent job with covering their popular songs. There is more than enough for the casual and the most fanatic fan. 2) The equalization/Frequency response is unbelievably good. 3) The clarity/low distortion is fantastic. I have listen to this with an excellent sound system and a very good set of headsets and tape hiss was virtually removed (At least I could not hear it, those with better hearing may be able too). For those who are interested in Eric Clapton (the early days) along with Ginger Baker and Jack Bruce this is the best way to get acquainted. This was well worth the money to get and I highly recommend it to everybody.

5.0 out of 5 stars Silver Horses Ran Down Moonbeams... Feb. 21 2006
By Mark - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Audio CD
What a bargain! Cream Gold is loaded with goodies. You get 4 tracks from Fresh Cream, six tracks from Disraeli Gears (Dance the Night Away is the only notable track missing here), 7 studio tracks from Wheels of Fire (only Pressed Rat and As You Said are missing), the three best tracks from Goodbye Cream and the little ditty called "Anyone for Tennis".

But wait! There's more! Not only do you get all of the above tracks remastered in 20 bit in 2005, you get a live disc that includes a wonderfully barbaric, pounding N.S.U., Sleepy Time Time, Rollin' and Tumblin' (from Live Cream), Spoonful, the amazing Crossroads, and Toad (all but one of the Live tracks from Wheels of Fire), Sunshine of Your Love (from Live Cream II) and I'm So Glad (one of the live tracks from Goodbye).

This is the ultimate collection if you don't want to go out and buy all the CDs. In fact, you get darn near all of Wheels of Fire and I don't think it is even available at this writing.

This is a great remaster, all of the tracks still sound great. Jack Bruce was/is such a great song writer, it's a shame he really doesn't get the credit he's due for Cream's sound. Clapton and Baker are great but Bruce, he provided the foundation with his wonderful song writing skills. It's amazing just how much the young Jack Bruce knew about harmony and melody. And Pete Brown's poetic lyrics are just incredible, especially White Room - a song about losing the center of your world, your love, your "contentment", hoping she'll come back, and then briefly falling for her again at a party only to remember the heartbreak she'll bring:

At the party she was kindness in the hard crowd

Consolation for the old wound now forgotten

Yellow tigers crouched in jungles in her dark eyes

She's just dressing, goodbye windows, tired starlings.

Wow! Bruce and Brown - what a song writing team! I would post the entire lyric (it is so wonderful) but last time I did that Amazon nixed my posting due to copyright blah blah blah.

If you "weren't there" and aren't very familiar with Cream's work, this is a treasure trove. If you are middle-aged, this is a wonderful trip (ha ha) down memory lane!

What are you waiting for, this is a real bargain! Two fantastic disks, newly remastered and positively oozing and overflowing with Cream's best work for the price of a single disk. Unbelievable!

5.0 out of 5 stars worth waiting 4............... April 26 2005
By Rindy Negrete - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Audio CD
This is an ultimate at least for me,as far a good collection.All the hits and more plus the great live cd # 2 is good.But the sound is far superior to the others that came before.Now all we need is a eric clapton(gold)cd.With his old to the present as a soloist,something that I have not seen out there in the stores yet.I have a feeling its coming next from hip o records in the near future.So buy you will be happy with this investment of old rock and roll.They just don't make music like this anymore.

5.0 out of 5 stars Great, but could be greater July 10 2010
By Erik Bateson - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Audio CD
I recommend the album be revised for future releases. I will go through Cream's four albums and discuss changes that I think should be made.

Fresh Cream:

ADD: Spoonful. This studio version has been featured on every previous Cream collection (Best of Cream, Heavy Cream, Strange Brew: The Very Best of Cream, The Very Best of Cream, Those Were the Days, 20th Century Masters: The Millenium Collection: The Best of Cream). Perhaps this cut is not being included because the live version is on disc two, but both versions are necessary (much like N.S.U., Sunshine of Your Love, and I'm So Glad, each of which is featured in both studio and live versions). "Spoonful" should be placed after all "Fresh Cream" tracks and before any "Disraeli Gears" tracks.

Disraeli Gears:

ADD: Dance the Night Away. This was Cream's breakthrough album, and part of the reason I think this "Gold" collection is so excellent is that it contains six of the songs from that album. However, this is clearly one of the best from that album, and it is absent here.

ADD: Outside Woman Blues. Place between "SWLABR" and "We're Going Wrong."

REMOVE: World of Pain. This is a good song, but it is not as strong as the two aforementioned, so in order to make space for those, it should be removed.

Wheels of Fire:

REMOVE: Passing the Time. Just as this is the only Cream collection without the studio cut of "Spoonful," this is also the only Cream collection with this sub-par track. It is clearly one if their weaker songs, and it should be removed.

Goodbye:

Remove: "Doing the Scrapyard Thing," "What a Bringdown." Cream's final album was a disappointment to critics and fans alike. The only one of the three studio cuts from the album (the other tracks were live) that has earned any recognition is "Badge." The other two cuts are superfluous, weakening both that album and this collection. Cutting them, "World of Pain," and "Passing the Time" to make room for "Spoonful," "Dance the Night Away," and "Outside Woman Blues" would be a good choice.

Disc two of the collection is nearly perfect. It is such a gift to us Cream fans that Cream's best live moments have been compiled onto a single disc. Live Cream releases over the years felt like quickly thrown together collections intended to capitalize on the popularity of Cream without giving the musicians the respect they deserve. Not here. The only minor complaint I have here is "I'm So Glad," which was recorded later than the rest of the tracks and feels out of place. Still, this is a great disc, of which there are not enough superlatives for.

Thank you for taking the time to read my review, and please leave me helpful feedback of you agree with the changes I suggest.
