Rock's first great power trio went out with a bang. They were at their thrilling live best on Politician and I'm So Glad and came up with two more stellar originals: What a Bringdown and the hit Badge (co-written with George Harrison). A #2 LP from '69.

4.0 out of 5 stars You STILL gotta love this Feb. 7 2004
Format:Audio CD
I agree with the other reviewers I scanned, in that this is Cream's weakest effort. However, it's STILL awesome! If you're curious and want to take the time for my input, here 'tis. I grew up a strong Cream fan (saw them twice) and bought all their albums and played them to death in the 60s and 70s. As we all mature (well, most of us), I stopped listening to them (other than the occasional radio play of White Room and Crossroads over the years). OK, so I'm now selling all my old LPs on eBay, as it's just a hassle to play them on the stereo. After listing my 4 Cream albums (Wheels of Fire was clearly the best, then Fresh Cream, Goodbye in last place), I decided to record some of the tunes I liked the most to CD (rather than fork for buying new CDs). I remember how much the live Sitting on Top of the World used to get me off. Actually, the first 6 guitar notes were among my favorite all time musical sounds for years. So, I put it on and IT STILL WORKS! This album is worth buying just for the live Sitting on Top (as well as Badge). Politian still works great too for a 52-year old grandpa.

5.0 out of 5 stars Without a Doubt the Finest Cream Album Oct. 9 2003
Format:Audio CD
It's always amazed me that so few people realize how great this album really is. Many criticize it for just having "long jams". That's kind of like criticizing John Coltrane or Miles Davis for playing "long jams". But this is what made Cream great. They were the greatest instrumental and improvisational band in the history of rock music with phenomenal guitar solos by Eric Clapton and with amazing interplay between Clapton's guitar and Jack Bruce's great bass playing. Why anyone would prefer their first two studio albums with only one or two choruses of guitar solo to this is beyond me. And on top of it Badge on this album has in my opinion Clapton's most beautiful studio guitar solo ever. Only Wheels of Fire can compete with this album, but in my opinion only Crossroads on that album attains greatness, while all three live tracks on this album do. Just listen to the intro guitar chorus on Sitting on Top of the World. It still sounds unreal today, but I remember hearing it back when this first came out, and it was stupefying. I remember after seeing Cream perform live Steve Miller said about Clapton that he couldn't believe that anyone could be that good. That's the kind of playing that's on this album. My guess is that the people who rate this album poorly see rock music essentially in terms of songs and singing and do not understand great instrumental music. But most of the world's greatest music is instrumental music, and Cream provided the greatest instrumental music in the history of rock music.

3.0 out of 5 stars Hit and miss Aug. 11 2003
Format:Audio CD
Cream's fourth album Goodbye was released in 1969, several months after the band had went their separate ways due to the increasing infighting and creative differences. Like their previous album Wheels Of Fire, it was a half-studio, half-live album, albeit only released as a single disc. Unfortunately, while Wheels Of Fire is a undeniable classic, Goodbye feels like an album that was released just for profit as it doesn't even come close to touching their first three classic albums.
The live material is pretty good, particularly "I'm So Glad" and "Politician". Jack Bruce's bass is way up in the mix and his playing on "I'm So Glad" seems to motivate both Eric Clapton and Ginger Baker as this track is up with "Crossroads" from Wheels Of Fire as their most energetic live work. "Politician" is also strong, but without the improvisation of "I'm So Glad". The live version of "Sitting On The Top Of The World" is okay, but sounds somewhat disjointed.
Of the studio tracks, only Clapton's "Badge" is among their best work and remains one of their most enduring tracks. The other tracks "Doing That Scrapyard Thing" and "What A Bringdown" sound like obvious throwaways, probably the two worst studio tracks they've ever recorded. This is probably the weakest album of their catalog. I'd recommend this only for the live version of "I'm So Glad". "Badge" is available on the on The Very Best Of Cream. If you want more of the great live stuff, I'd recommend Live Cream or especially Live Cream Volume II.

5.0 out of 5 stars This is Cream's best album March 9 2001
Format:Audio CD
The song "I'm So Glad" alone makes this Cream's most important album.
On the subject of Cream everyobdy always says Clapton, Clapton, Clapton, but what made Cream great was Jack Bruce and his invention of a unique free-form flavor of rock music that exploded the song conventions of the mid sixties. Bruce studied classical music at university until he was driven to drop out by the narrow-mindedness of his teachers. But in school he learned a love of Bach's use of multiple melodies working in counterpoint--which led to the three-ring circus effect in Cream's music of Bruce playing interesting, dramatic, creative bass lines underneath Clapton's guitar solos, while Ginger Baker did interesting things on the drums.
Jack Bruce and Cream drummer Ginger Baker were also students of the free-form jazz and rock invented in the U.S. in the late 1950s and in the 60s. They followed Ornette Coleman (see the album Friends and Neighbors--it came out later but it was the culmination of Coleman's "Free Jazz" style); they also listened to the Grateful Dead (who were influenced by Ornette Coleman as well--check out the Dead's Blues for Allah as well as "Ladies and Gentlemen"). Cream influenced Miles Davis's free-form style (Miles's best stuff in this genre was on Live Evil and also On the Corner; it started with In A Silent Way and then Bitches Brew).
Clapton was a great musician but for him it's been downhill since this album Goodbye. Before Cream was started, Clapton was in John Mayall's blues band (check out the wonderful Blues Breakers album), and Mayall made Clapton practise for 8 hours a day, which make him simply an assassin on the guitar. When Clapton joined Jack Bruce, who persuaded him to use his expert playing in a free-form style, Clapton soared.

4.0 out of 5 stars best live jams
As The Grateful Dead was more famous for their live shows, this album illustrates the amazing power with Cream's live shows.
Their best work was with the long jams. Read more
