Cream: 1966–1972

Album Review

Groundbreaking 60s power-trio’s complete works now available in a vinyl box set.

Exactly half of these six albums are live. Half, too, were released after Cream had announced their split in 1968. This suggests the special qualities of a band whose combustible members couldn’t even manage three years together, and who became a byword for lengthy live improvisation previously the province of jazz, to which they added ballroom-shuddering, Marshall-stacked volume.
