Cream Bibliography

Cream were a 1960s British rock power trio consisting of drummer Ginger Baker, guitarist/singer Eric Clapton and lead singer/bassist Jack Bruce. The group's third album, Wheels of Fire, released in 1968, is the world's first platinum-selling double album. The band is widely regarded as the world's first successful supergroup.

During their career, they sold more than 15 million copies of their albums worldwide. Their music included songs based on traditional blues such as "Crossroads" and "Spoonful", and modern blues such as "Born Under a Bad Sign", as well as more current material such as "Strange Brew", "Tales of Brave Ulysses" and "Toad". The band's biggest hits were "I Feel Free"  which reached NUMBER 11 in the Uk and "Badge which reached Nos 18 in the Uk. Other chart successes occurred, but mainly in the US, including "Sunshine of Your Love" which reached No 5 in the US, "White Room"  which reached US number 6), "Crossroads"which reached number US number 28.

The band made a significant impact on the popular music of the time, and, along with Jimi Hendrix and other notable guitarists and bands, popularised the use of the wah-wah pedal. They provided a heavy yet technically proficient musical theme that  influenced the emergence of British bands such as Led Zeppelin, Deep Purple and Black Sabbath in the late 1960s and the early 1970s.They also influenced American southern rock groups like the Allman Brothers Band and Lynyrd Skynyrd. The band's live performances also influenced progressive rock acts such as Rush.

The band was inducted into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame in 1993. They were included in both Rolling Stone and VH1's lists of the "100 Greatest Artists of All Time," at number 67 and 61 respectively. They were also ranked number 16 on VH1's 100 Greatest Artists of Hard Rock.

From its formation, Cream was faced with some personnel problems that would later lead to its dissolution in November 1968. The rivalry between Jack Bruce and  Ginger Baker created tensions in the band and Eric Clapton also felt that the members of the band did not listen to each other enough. They decided that they would break up in May 1968 during a tour of the US. Later, in July, an official announcement was made that the band would break up after a farewell tour of the United States and after playing two concerts in London. Their "farewell tour" consisted of 22 shows at 19 venues in the United States from 4 October to 4 November 1968, and two final farewell concerts at the Royal Albert Hall on 25 and 26 November 1968.The final U.S. gig was at the Rhode Island Auditorium on 4 November 1968.

In 1993, Cream were inducted into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame and reformed to perform at the induction ceremony. Initially, the trio were wary about performing, until encouraging words from Robbie Robertson. The set consisted of "Sunshine of Your Love", "Crossroads", and "Born Under a Bad Sign". This performance started rumours of a reunion tour, but a formal reunion did not take place immediately, as Clapton, Bruce and Baker continued to pursue solo projects and a formal reunion did not yake place until 2005.

They eventually reunited for a series of four shows, on 2, 3, 5, and 6 May 2005 at the Royal Albert Hall in London, the venue of their final concerts in 1968. Although the three musicians chose not to speak publicly about the shows, Eric Clapton would later state that he had become more "generous" in regard to his past, and that the physical health of  JackBruce and Ginger Baker was a major factor:The reunion marked the first time the band had played "Badge" and "Pressed Rat and Warthog" live. Inspired by the success of the reunion, the band agreed to an additional set of three shows at the Madison Square Garden in New York City, from 24–26 October 2005 .
