The concert ticket of 2005 comes home as Jack Bruce, Ginger Baker, and Eric Clapton reunite on stage to resurrect Cream - one of the most influential acts of the 1960s. A band that existed for less than three years in its original incarnation, Cream offered an invigorating fusion of pop and blues to listeners with such classic albums as Fresh Cream and Wheels of Fire. In a fitting return to form, Cream returns for their triumphant reunion on the very stage where they performed their farewell concert in 1968 - London's historic Royal Albert Music Hall. With four shows staged over four nights, Cream offers twenty-seven classic hits including "I'm So Glad," "White Room," "Sunshine of your Life," "Sweet Wine," and "We're Going Wring." In addition to the concert performance, fans can also access interviews with each individual member of the band to learn more about the music, and find out just what they've been up to over the years. .
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.
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!
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.
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!
