CREAM - WHEELS OF FIRE (VINYL 2LP)

The British rock supergroup Cream was formed in 1966, and consisted of bassist/singer Jack Bruce, drummer Ginger Baker, and guitarist/singer Eric Clapton. Their sound was characterized by a hybrid of blues rock, hard rock and bourgeoning psychedelic rock, combining imaginative lyrics, often written by poet Pete Brown, Eric Clapton's innovative blues guitar playing, Jack Bruce's operatic voice and fluid bass playing and Ginger Baker's jazz-influenced drumming.
 
Non-stop touring soon saw Cream breakthrough in America where Wheels of Fire, released in August 1968, topped the U.S. charts for a month and was the world's first platinum-selling double album. It comprised one album ‘in the studio’ – including the Jack Bruce and Pete Brown penned classics ‘White Room’ and ‘Politician’ – while the other side was recorded at the Fillmore West in San Francisco, highlighted by expansive readings of ‘Crossroads’ and ‘Spoonful.’
