But look at the big picture, folks. This is CREAM in concert in 1968. Be thankful that this 47-year old document exists at all. The film is successful at making you feel like you are there; it captures the intensity and virtuosity of one of the greatest rock bands in history at their live peak.
Forget the message
This is a review of the Special Extended Edition.
I grew up on the Cream and never realized how short lived they were or the dynamics of the people that make up the Cream. This DVD allows one to revisit the time and place with a new vision. Hindsight can be as entertaining as the original vision.
The cream went with me into the Vietnam War so they are hard to forget. Even today I find myself singing "in the Sunshine of your love" and someone in the next cube would finish. One day that will be my ring tone. I'm always telling my wife to get into my big black car. Speaking of cars they make great driving music. Now I actually have a visual to match with this film. You definitely need this for your collection.
