Cream, live, 1968 at the Albert Hall Sunshine...

They start out pretty heavy pop, cross into jazz, then cross into something else entirely...Great band...and This was when Eric played a decent guitar, not those damn...strats....




Jack and Ginger were pretty good that night...

How many bands of today can even match that old clip of a well worn song? Hell, not even these same guys can match it!

There is a "new" version of the same song somewhere on youtube, live from their last reunion...it's not in the same league as this old one.

Great! I bet it felt really good to do that.

Thanks.

He basically wanted a clear and full cut from his Cream days, even Blind Faith wasn't far enuf removed for his head at the time. I think it's part of why Cream didn't reunite for many decades, it wasn't him any more. I love his Strat days of The Dominos, while my Creamly devoted friends all are still disgusted by it. I wasn't THAT big on Cream so it didn't bug me as much, but it was a huge change and took me about a week to get past it.

Much of his early post Blind Faith days is country...he played and toured with Delaney and Bonnie, and felt like he wanted to get out of the spotlight for a while...also got into and out of heroin addiction.




He was also very influenced by JJ Cale around that time, and still is, IMO...changed his style totally. I'm kind of used to it and appreciate it now, but I miss that old drive that seemed to disappear when he went to the bolt on neck and single coil pups.

FWIW, I still have a "Blackie" type Stratocaster...I never play it.

Eric's head was so swelled with Cream that anything but accolades pierced his armour, and once that article called him the King of cliches he really became deflated and desperate for another avenue. Besides, he knew his crown had been snatched by Hendrix. Behind the pompous front he was a rather sensitive guy and his fall from grace was drastic, leading to all the things you mentioned and the old highly driven Eric was gone, even feeling the need to use Derek as a facade. Fortunately or not, he struck gold with Layla and he never looked back, yet it seems even that wasn't enuf to keep him truly happy. I think he's much more comfortable with himself these days, but it's been a rough road. I wouldn't want to be him.

At the same time, he'd heard and been completely bowled over by the Band's Music from Big Pink. I still remember him saying of that, "I thought, this is what I want to do, not long boring solos and maestro bullshit but good, funky songs. The combination of Big Pink and the Rolling Stone review decided for me that I wanted to leave Cream." (His exhaustion with having to be a kind of peacemaker between Jack Bruce and Ginger Baker probably helped, too . . . )
