Cream: The Farewell Concert

Overview

While he began receiving international acclaim durring his stints with The Yardbirds and John Mayall's Bluesbreakers, Eric Claption truly rose to the status of rock's premier guitar hero with the bluesy power trio Cream, which teamed him with two unusually gifted and individual collaborators, Jack Bruce on bass and Ginger Baker on drums. Cranking out four acclaimed studio albums and a long string of live shows in a scant two years, Cream called it quits on November 26, 1968 with a concert at London's Royal Albert...

    I would say "Don't bother", but..

    If it weren't for the music, this DVD wouldn't even be worth watching. These guys are like Gods to a 54 year old guitar player like me. This music was the stuff that ran through my veins as a teenager with an old SG. I would sit and listen to Wheels of Fire over and over until I knew every drum, bass and guitar lick that these guys did - and still remember every note 40 years later. THIS is the only reason that this DVD is worth watching - the voice and bass playing genius of Jack Bruce, the planned-sloppiness of Ginger Baker that made his style unique and in a class by itself. And Clapton's work on a Gibson ES335 (for cryin' out loud) is just phenomenal.

    But you don't get to see a lick of them playing, because the filmaker decided that what was important to the viewer was close-up shots of rock star's faces - over and over again. I was almost mad, because what a person that watches this movie wants is to see how these virtuosi performed their magic. Almost every cinematic decision made by this guy was just flat out wrong. Even when they show Jack Bruce playing his EBO, the guy zooms in to a shot of the body of the guitar, as if to say "The shape of this guitar is really gear! Who cares what his fingers are doing". In one shot; sort of a split screen, there is a hazy image of Jack, and a shot of Clapton's back. And this goes on for a minute or so!

    I don't know. Maybe this guy was given a 27 dollar budget to make this film. Maybe it was made by a high school art student. I am just disappointed. This film should have been a valuable piece of history for drummers, base players and guitarists and lovers of music from its richest era, but instead was the quasi-art product of a director with no creative talent.

    Cream: Farewell Concert

    Boy, this one was a bummer. Don't get me wrong, the music is great. However, a lot of the film is taken up by this super-annoying British narrator who just can't shut up. Also, the quality of the film could be better. Even Ginger Baker (for those who don't know, Cream's AMAZING drummer) didn't like this film.
