5.0 out of 5 stars Caution - may set turntable on fire Dec 2 2003
Format:Audio CD
Cream was at its best live - and it's such a pity that live recording was just emerging from its infancy when these tracks were caught. But even through the murk of my cheap stereo speakers back when I first placed this bit of vinyl on my turntable back in '71, I was astonished. If you are a musician or an instrumentalist, it's hard not to let your jaw drop at the effortless way these three men played together. While every music critic likes to prattle on about the live version of "Crossroads" epitomizing Cream, it's easy to make a case that "Sleepy Time Time" surpasses the old Robert Johnson tune in terms of a performance. Clapton's notes sometimes wait until the last possible moment to sound making you sit on the edge of your seat, his Firebird sounding full and crisp. Jack Bruce plays brilliant counterpoint, when he's not actually taking the lead on passages. And there's Ginger Banker, at times restrained and at times a mad man - but always on point. When I heard that this set had been remasterd for digital audio, I knew I had to have a copy.

4.0 out of 5 stars Cream live Sept. 26 2003
Format:Audio CD
This is pretty good. I actually would prefer this over most Cream things just because it's real. No studio BS just real playing. Don't compare to current clapton. This is the clapton with FIRE, not this pop, weak guitar solo from the post drug years. This and Derek and the Dominoes Live are pretty awesome and fiery things. This is a whole band, not just the clapton and backup band junk with an occasional pop song thrown in to sell records. This is music. You can listen again and again and again.

5.0 out of 5 stars REVIEW OF LIVE CREAM Vol.1 Aug. 23 1998
Format:Audio CD
This recording was one of the first I have heard of Eric Clapton. His performance on this recording is exemplary. Although most of us are probably most familiar with his work on "From the Cradle" and the single "Tears in Heaven", Cream is a point in time of Eric's career that any Clapton fan would most likely find enjoyment from listening with an open ear. The music is much heavier than anything he has done since those times(1966-1968). He teams up with Jack Bruceon vocals, bass, and harmonica and Ginger Baker on drums. These gentlemen were highly regarded jazz musicians on the the London Scene in the mid-sixties. When listening to these recordings, done live at various venues in the States in March of 1968, one will see the high energy and explosive inventiveness in Clapton's playing that has not been heard in any of his other groups. Bruce and Baker push him to experiment with tone, phrasing and volume. His solo on "Sleepy Time Time" is especially juicy and "Sweet Wine" is a nearly 17-minute journey into the then-uncharted territory of jazz-rock. Other recommendations for live Cream include "Wheels of Fire" (Crossroads, Spoonful), "Goodbye" (live versions of Sittin on top of the World, Politician and I'm so Glad), and , if available, Live at the Grande Ballroom in Detroit (Oct 1967) is an example of Cream at their highpoint with Clapton experimenting with feedback techniques ala Hendrix.

5.0 out of 5 stars Very intense, not for the faint of heart! Aug. 19 2003
Format:Audio CD
N.S.U., which opens the CD, is one of the best openings for any song. The solo drums sets a frantic pace that gets even more frenetic as the song progresses. One of the things I've always loved about Cream is the way they EXPLODE into their jams. Sonically, it is like a dam bursting. There is enough guitar instruction on this CD to keep one occupied for months.
