Imagine the ensemble : Eric Clapton guitar , Jack Bruce bass and Ginger Baker in drums. This team is in the rock music something like The New York Yankees in Major Leagues.
Powerful rhytms , advanced ideas and keep in mind that every one of these super gifted musician were among the top list in every one of his instruments.
Think in classical rock themes as The White Room , Badge, In the sunshine of your love , The tales of Brave Ulysses or Politician.
If you're a teenager, or even not, this album is a must for you because it's a decisive turning point in the rock music .
Cream was a status ensemble and still we can feel his powerful influence in certain bands.
A must in your collection.

No one can deny that Cream was one of the greatest classic hard rock bands of all time. With the talents of Eric Clapton, Ginger Baker, and Jack Bruce combined, the results could only be good. Like just about any classic rock band out there, Cream has had a number of hits compilations released over the years - and this is one of many. Read on for my review of the Very Best of Cream.
PROS:
-If you're a casual fan who is seeking all of the big hits the group released over the years, you've come to the right place! Strange Brew, Sunshine of Your Love, White Room, Crossroads, Badge, and all the other tracks you have come to know and love can be found here.
-In addition to the big hits, you also get a number of underrated masterpieces, including I Feel Free and I'm So Glad. There is WAY more to this band than most people think.
-It's a compilation that is readily available in a number of stores.
-The price of this compilation will make it ideal to the casual fan.
-You get TWENTY TRACKS ON ONE DISC! That makes the set a great value.
CONS:
-Many die-hard fans of the band will tell you that a few selections got deprived of their place on here, and I'm going to have to agree with that. Where's the title track from the Disreli Gears album?
-If you're a casual fan of Eric Clapton in general, I recommend buying a career-spanning compilation, rather than just one that covers his Cream years (the compilation entitled the Cream of Clapton would be a good bet.)
-Cream didn't release very many albums. You're better off buying them all separately.
OVERALL:
What more can I say? If you're a casual Cream fan, I really doubt you'll be disappointed with this collection. These guys were classic hard rock gods, and this compilation proves that point twenty times over.

Probably one of the best comp. CDs you can buy if you are interested in psychedelic rock, Eric Clapton, classic rock, blues-rock, or any and all of the above. This famous band, Eric Clapton, Ginger Baker, and Jack Bruce, which formed in the mid 1960s and broke up in the late 1960s, managed to produce some studio albums, couple of live albums, and some flatout psychedelic staples that would prove both enormously popular and enormously influential.

Cream, like any great band, was also wonderfully versatile. Not only did they do blues and hard-rock, but they did gentle lilting ballads and psychedelic jams. "Spoonful", the old Willie Dixon song, is remade into an epic, acid-blues track here. "Tales of Brave Ulysses" turns Homer on his head. "Politician" has one of my al ltime favorite Clapton riffs. "Wrapping Paper", the band's first single, is also sedate but great fun to sing along too. "Crossroads", a live track taken from their 1968 double album WHEEL OF FIRE (half studio, half live), is seen by many (including E.C. himself) as Clapton's definitive song. "Anyone For Tennis" sounds like an aural twin to "Wrapping Paper". For you Beatles fans, George Harrison co-wrote the last track to this album with Eric Clapton, the phenomenal "Badge", and also played rhythm guitar.

With any major band, there's been a long line of compilations for this band. This is one of the best ones. Longer than the Strange Brew comp from the 1980s, aimed at the causal listener looking for a single disc Cream, it's long enough to feature the majority of the most important work. If I'm not mistaken there's been some more comprehensive comps. released after this, but for a single disc jobber nothing beats this.

For the hard core Cream fans, there will be those who complain some tracks are left off. Cream only released four albums, so it's just as easy to get them. But if you're looking for an introduction to the band, this is one of the best places to start.

My first introduction to Cream was a song on the classic rock station called "Crossroads" and I loved the way Clapton and Bruce played the lead gitar/bass duo-melodies in the instrumental part, kind of like Yes did in "Then". Although I am not a fan of blues, I do like a beat and most of thier songs have a beat that sets them apart from blues. This collection spans thier 66-69 carear together(I was born only a year after thier last song was published in 1969 so I missed 'em.). Songs like "I'm so Glad", "I feel Free" Where Ginger Baker played his melodic drum kit, and the haunting "Tales of Brave Ulysses" as well as the ever classic hit "White room" and of course "Crossroads" are my favorite songs and easily stick in my mind enough for me to play the CD once more. Yes, this band can be compared to blues, but if you like classic rock I promise you'll love this!
