With that day-glo cover and Sunshine of Your Love ! Also
from 1967. Fresh Cream, the album that introduced this seminal
super-blues trio to America, was perhaps a bit too blues-based to do the
advance hype (“Clapton is God!”) justice. Two of its three best-known tracks,
after all, were blues covers. It was Disraeli Gears that turned Cream into a
“supergroup.” Here they pursue the psychedelic ideals of the era with total
abandon (the LP cover art still stands as one of the 1960s’ most striking
designs), merging these ideals with their take on the blues and adorning the
amalgamation with some superb pop craftsmanship. Of the eleven originals here,
four–“Tales of Brave Ulysses,” “SWLABR,” “Strange Brew,” and “Sunshine of
Your Love”–earned major airplay. This, their excess-free greatest moment,
does the Cream legend proud. –Bill Holdship
