Editorial Reviews

Barnes & Noble - Steve Futterman
Thirty-seven years after they first broke up as a band, Cream reunited for a series of concerts at London's Royal Albert Hall, the site of their final 1968 performance. No one would expect that decades later, guitarist Eric Clapton, bassist Jack Bruce, and drummer Ginger Baker would retain the same intensity and brute force that made the original incarnation of Cream such an exciting and inventive band. But for a bunch of sexagenarians, these boys still rock. If the characteristic jostle and creative tension has been replaced by a more friendly, supportive interplay, then so be it. They sound as if they're glad to be together again, let alone glad to be alive after all the rock star tribulations each has gone through. Clapton in particular plays with a vigor and inventiveness that simply eviscerates his more restrained work from the past few decades. Bruce sings with ageless passion, and Baker, while not the dynamo of yore, still gives it his very best shot. The old favorites are all here, some done up in interesting new arrangements. And for those who fear the dated visuals that marred the Tony Palmer's RAH 1968 documentary, this beautifully shot and edited DVD is blissfully gimmick free. No, the new Cream won't make you forget the legends of old, but this invigorating document will give you hope for rock in its more "mature" stage.

    WOW!

    It might have taken 40 years to get it right but this is THE Cream concert to own. All three of the guys are playing and singing their very best here. This may be one of the best Concert DVD's of all time!

    God Save the Cream!

    Simply one of the best concert films I have ever seen. If you were not there to see Eric, Jack, and Ging revel in great music, this really is the next best thing (and I don't say that about most concert films)! I hope to God that the boys reconsider and do a few more one-off dates together they're not exactly spring chickens anymore! But this document also proves that they can still tear it up. Eric! Jack! Ginger! A few more, please! A great viewing experience, the RAH is! God save the Cream!

    Great in the 60's - extraordinary in 2005

    The DVD was fabulous. They were great 40 years ago and even better now. Like a fine wine they have gotten better with age. Sound quality was magnificent video work was excellent. I recommend adding this one to your library.

    Goosebumps

    I was a little concerned this might not be as good as I wanted it to be. But it was amazing! The band are so obviously enjoying playing together and the quality of the music is fantastic. Clapton plays better than he has in years, and Baker and Bruce are right there alongside him. There's a raw intensity underlying a sense of self confident smoothness which just gets more obvious as the concert progresses. This is a wonderful piece of music. There were a couple of times I could feel goosebumps from the power of what they were producing. Great visual quality and camera work. Definitely buying the cd to go with the dvd.
