All there is to say: The Cream was a truely great band and this was a great concert!

(To be correct: There were two concerts and it looks like this film was put together with recordings from both of them.)

The music is very enjoyable and to me it is a wonderful, stimulating experience every time I watch it...

The interviews with the band members make it even more interesting. I would rate it 10 points for the music alone but I know there are better concert recordings when it comes to the visual art. Still the moving images are not bad, they make use of psychedelic effects which were typical for the time when it was recorded in 1968.

So far I have only known the German dubbed version of the

Farewell Concert but now it is out on DVD! :)

Let us hope it is in a good quality... and maybe with a few extras???
