A brief but awe-inspiring look at the first supergroup., 14 June 2001
Author: David B. Melton from Shelby, NC

Most of this video will be watched with your mouth open in awe. Not only do you get to see concert footage of Cream, but you get interviews with each member on a variety of subjects.

Jack Bruce (bass, vocals) talks about his formal training and how he had to "unlearn" it to become satisfied with music. Eric Clapton (guitar, vocals) explains how his guitar works and gives keen insight to his improvisational style. Ginger Baker (drums) discusses his drum set and demonstrates how he does what few other drummers can do.

In between the interviews, the viewer is treated to incredible concert footage and great video.

If not for the brevity of the video (about 40 minutes) and some disconcerting video cuts in the Ginger Baker drum solo, I would have given this video a 10.
