Ok, I love Led Zeppelin, but an another British band that I love as much is Cream

Cream released four studio albums in a span of three years until the drummer, Giner Baker, and the bassist/singer, Jack Bruce were constantly arguing over things, and then split up in 1963.
Similar to the case of the Police, where Steward Copeland and Sting didn't get along.

The first album was Fresh Cream, and it was ok...
The second and third were great, with attractive covers, which were Disraeli Gears and Wheels on Fire.
The final one, Goodbye, was a joke.

Unlike Zeppelin, the Beatles, or the Who they didn't produce an album that was perfect, but some of their songs stood out a lot.

Those are my favorites:

1. N.S.U., favorite for the moaning by Clapton and Bruce
2. Sunshine of Your Love, probably their most popular song
3. Tales of Brave Ulysses, which had Bruce sing to his limits into a catchy aggressive melody
4. SWLABR, this song is aggressive but it makes you relaxe
5. Deserted Cities of the Heart, a very cowboyish western themed song
6. Crossroads, a mixed cover of Robert Johnson's classic
7. White Room, my most favorite song by them

What is your favorite song?

I'm learning to play Sunshine right now and what a great song...
Very easy to learn, but very hard to pull it off perfectly.

claptons playing really shines on all the cream recordings as well though
iv got a live version of crossroads on LP
AMAZING!!!!!!!!
#5
my band did a grungy cover of sunshine of your love, it was amazing, but my singer didn't like it so it was dropped.

haha a grunge version
how well did that work?


it was great, we took the key down to a, sped it up loads, and i pissed around with a wah wah pedal for the entire song whilst everone else played

So what is White Room about?
Many of the songs by Cream make no sense, but I'm interested in the theme behind white room.
#13
I was thinking white room, the outro solo is ace

The lack of "Tales of Brave Ulysses" in this thread is disturbing
Mother Earth is pregnant for the third time
For y'all have knocked her up.
I have tasted the maggots in the mind of the universe
I was not offended
For I knew I had to rise above it all
Or drown in my own shit.

I love Crossroads, Tales of Brave Ulysess, White Room and Sunshine of Your Love. I'm sure there's more but they don't come to mind immediately.

Yeah that too, and also SWLABR and Spoonful.


Also, stuff from pretty much any of Claptons' other bands/ incarnations; too many to name.
