the first album was a bit more bluesy... but either way they were never limited to just the blues they were a psychodelic rocking bluesy trio, they kicked ass, wise decision

Buy the Cream Reunion Tour they released. In my opinion they are better on that then they have ever been. The highlight is definately Stormy Monday.

Well, it's a blues club here on UG. Sadly, im just about the only member of it that comes around here much anymore. If you are interested in information on where a lot of us now post, PM me. ;)

Wheels of Fire i thought was my favorite

and I think of Cream as the First ever Supergroup

According to Jack and Ginger, they weren't just a blues or psychedelic band, but rather a jazz band - they just never told Eric.

To be honest, I think Derek and the Dominos was Eric's best band. Even though they put out only one studio album, one live album (missing Duane Allman), and a CD containing a few jams, everything they made was absolutely awesome.

i agree on that TheHeartbreaker, it's just a perfect match between duane allman and eric clapton, just incredible musicians on that album. it's one of my favorite albums ever, i think how clapton puts his emotions into his work is absolutely fantastic and i haven't seen many other musicians in a way he did it. wasn't derek and the dominos working on a new album with new songs? but eventually they ended falling apart because of clapton's heroin addiction

if you like the bluesier stuff, get fresh cream, wheels of fire and disraeli grears are more psycadelia, and goodbye is more pop than the other albums

Derek and The Dominoes is almost nothing like Cream, it's an entirely different setup (not a trio) and Eric's moved to his Strat by then (I'm pretty sure). He's also singing, which tends to make his playing less expressive. He used to only be able to express himself through guitar, but now he can also sing. Whathaveyou.
I really don't like that album that much. Most of it is good, but at times it gets too watered down, overproduced, or somewhat uninspired, if you ask me.
Cream is alot better I think.

and the RAH DVD is very different from their original stuff. I don't like it as much. You really can't play Cream without Clapton's 60's era setup. Even if you are Clapton.
Cream isn't Cream without the "woman tone".

Even though I love Layla and other assorted loved songs i do prefer Cream. I was always partial to the smaller bands becuase its more raw. When Clapton has a bigger band behind him he seems to play less, where as in Cream it was just him on guitar and he played with more feeling.

As far as Clapton's tone, I absolutely loved the sound he got on RAH. During Layla he was using Brownie, his strat, and I don't really care for the very high trebbley sound. During the 60s his woman tone was great but I think the sound he got during the Reunion Tour is the greatest tone Ive ever heard. Stormy Monday was just amazing.

i have to disagree, i think cream overall is a better band, i think clapton was better with derek and the dominos, but overall i like creams bluesy style better...

This also shows with Clapton's current set up. With all those guys backing Clapton up, he just kind of lays back and his solos seem a bit uninspired.

I got to see the reunion at MSG...:D

i feel the same about that thing. he didn't really push it to concentrate on his guitar when he's singing. he depends on the work of doyle and trucks, i can't blame him for doing that, but i guess the days of being a guitar god ended when he decided to concentrate on his singing and lyrics. since then, he started playing with more guitarists onstage and he probably feels more comfortable now with one on his side

^I'm not completely sure, but as far as i know, he liked Gibson guitars such as Les Paul and ES-335s through Marshall amps.

as far as cream, he used a les paul, when it was stolen he got an es-335 and he switched between the 335 on the fool after that

My brother saw them at The Albert Hall in 2005.
He paid 350 ($700) from a tout.

I love Cream, though I strangely don't like the bluesy stuff very much. I'm far more inclined to songs like Wrapping Paper and I Feel Free, rather than Crossroads.

^ I am very jealous of your brother, I like it all myself, my favorite is their version of "Sitting on Top of the World"

oh ok, I'm probably mixing stories up again, that happens a lot :(

Cream is one of the few bands that I will listen to when I am too drunk and still understand what the hell is going on.
