    disappointing live album. yes, their are some fine moments but that should at the least be expected with a 2 album effort. jack bruce was good, but eric Clapton's fender guitar doesn't have the bite as his Gibson's he used during Cream's reign. he had a leslie on stage but along with his wahwah peddle (for white room) he forgot to use it. underwhelming.

    History with a Twist

    Without question, this set is one that requires you to listen through both discs at least 3-4 times, before you're pretty well hooked on these versions of the groups' classics. I didn't expect to hear Clapton's historical speed or Baker's earlier chops, but don't let that stop you. No, you won't hear Crossroads at the pace Clapton originally sped on the original live version, but you WILL enjoy a more subdued, blusey version that (like the acoustic version of Layla) compliments the classic rendition. In terms of the 2 CD's my preference is side 2, but the whole set is a great listen. Yes, I would like to have heard even more Clapton, but people, the work on Stormy Monday, Born Under A Bad Sign, Crossroads and the alternate take of Sleepy Time is a great return on investment. While I didn't expect Baker to fly across the kit at his previous pace, the fact is, he shows that it's technique (not speed) that makes the drum set sing. The only caveat (and yeah, this is winy), is the cheap flimsy case the CD's come in - pretty pathetic quality given the importance of the event itself. Enjoy.

    Qualified Success

    The Cream reunion CD is a success, but it does have flaws. Bruce, Baker, and Clapton sound fine. After a while, though, you wish that they had added keyboards or horns to a few songs to add some variety. The trio format is limiting even with such fine players. I think a few new songs or an unplugged number or two might also have added interest. In their heyday, the group experimented quite a bit. It’s too bad they didn’t take a chance or two. Still, it is good to hear Clapton push himself and play the type of guitar that made his reputation.

    Blue to the bone!

    This rocks me like my back ain't got no bone! I ain't superstitious but the blues just crossed my trail, yes it did!! Is there a blue-er guitarist than EC? Is there a better blues shouter than Jack Bruce? Can anyone do a longer drum solo than my man Gingy? I think not! Most of these songs are long enough for my nurse to change my diaper, and I LOVE IT!!!
