After nearly four decades of not playing together, Cream reunited in May 2005 in London to play at Royal Albert Hall. This DVD highlights the four nights Cream mesmerized audiences at that venue. Eric Clapton, Ginger Baker and Jack Bruce perform the classics - I'm So Glad, Spoonful, Outside Woman Blues, Badge, Sweet Wine, Rollin' and Tumblin', Born Under a Bad Sign, We're Going Wrong, White Room, Toad, Sunshine of Your Love, Crossroads and others. Includes interviews with the three legendary rockers. Written by
I caught a bit of this concert on public television and knew I had to have it. The boys give everyone at the Royal Albert an excellent, often thrilling performance complete in every way. Pure, too - no synth, no smoke-shrouded lasers and strobes, no grandiose entrance (and an unstoned, serious, and appreciative audience, all of whom left their bottle rockets at home).
If you're a Cream fan (or if you've only heard of them); if you're a blues fan; if you're a rock 'n' roll fan; you will not be disappointed when you view and listen to this DVD. You also will never lose this DVD because you'll never lend it to anyone. (This DVD justifies selfishness! Tell them to get their own!) It's too good and too replayable; you'll want to keep it within easy reach.
