Unsatisfying, 24 May 2005
Author: itamarscomix from Israel

Live footage of Cream - one of the greatest bands in the history of rock music - is rare stuff; that is really the only reason I'm giving this tape a 3 star rating. What is supposed to be documentation of Cream's historic final concert in the Royal Albert Hall in 1968 is in fact hardly 30 minutes of music plus ten minutes of interviews, and that, too, is badly edited and has terrible sound quality. The music is cut at every corner - the first song, and one of their best - Sunshine of Your Love - is cut almost completely and what's left is dubbed with stuffy, self-important narration that adds nothing, and is disrespectful and insulting to rock music in general - treating it as a low form of art, stating that the electric guitar is usually considered a 'noise machine', and so on.

Well, they say beggars can't be choosers. Should we be grateful for what crumbs we Cream fans manage to get our hands on? Is this what we have to go through in order to enjoy this great music? I suppose it is. If you are a fan then you'd probably want to watch this for the music - even though there's so little of it. I do hope someone has the common sense to release a complete version of this concert.
